Peach Tomato Salsa Ranchera


Peach Tomato Salsa Ranchera's instant burst of heat from chili peppers and sweetness of peaches,had me craving for its recipe since I first tasted it at my friends.But the recipe was a mystery since the salsa was store bought.I searched in couple of stores with no luck finding the peach kind.Google came to the rescue,searching the net found this easy video of salsa ranchera.Boosting that recipe on the video with sweet summery peaches,voila! I created my own home made peach tomato salsa that was almost as good as the one I first tasted.


The ranch-style Salsa is traditionally made with tomatoes,spices and hot chili peppers.Baking the tomatoes and hot chili peppers gives a mellow roasted flavor to the salsa ,better than steaming or blanching.One can even use ripe mangoes instead of peaches or both together.Just make sure the peaches are thoroughly washed since its the fruit considered to most laden with pesticides,or buy organic peaches if available.

Recipe: Peach Tomato Salsa Ranchera
Ingredients
3 ripe peaches,thoroughly rinsed,pitted and diced
3 plum red ripe tomatoes,cored and halved
1/2 cup shallots ,finely chopped or minced
1 clove garlic,finely chopped
1 tablespoons. lemon juice
2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
3 jalapeno peppers or Serrano peppers ,seeded and halved(Use 2 for medium heat)
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
1 tablespoons Extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt

Method
Lay the tomatoes and peppers on a baking sheet,cut side down.Set in the preheated oven at 35F oven and let bake for 15-10 minutes until slightly charred at the top.Transfer in a blender and puree.

Heat the oil in a large heavy skillet,add the garlic and shallots,saute for a minute.Add the cumin,peaches and cilantro,cover and cook another 3-4 minutes just until peaches are little soft but not mushy.Stir in blended tomato and pepper mixture,let warm up.Stir in the vinegar,lemon juice,season with salt and pepper.Transfer in a bowl and serve with blue corn tortilla chips.Can be stored in sterilized jar for a month.



Fruity fiery tangy,the best salsa I ever tasted.

The juicy look of the peachy salsa is amazing.Glad you could recreate the recipe with the help of the video.

Sassy said...

The number of jalapenos scares me...I've a mild tolerance for spices...would love to try with milder heat.

JennaCook said...

I like the heat in the salsa,a great compliment with sweet juicy peaches.Another great party food.

I grow my own organic tomatos and peaches and can them. I bet this "Peach Tomato Salsa" could also be canned in a pressure cooker!
