Before we get into the recipe instructions, we’ll gather up the ingredients. 

Spicy Peach Salsa Ingredients:

Here’s what you’ll need to make this recipe the way I did, but feel free to mix it up and make it your own. 

  • fresh peaches – Fresh ripe peaches are best in this recipe.
  • jalapeño – Jalapeño makes the salsa spicy. You can adjust the heat by adding more or less.
  • green bell pepper – Green pepper adds crunch and flavor.
  • red onion – Onion gives a sharp bite of flavor.
  • limes – Lime adds a bright freshness.
  • tomatoes – It might seem weird to mix peaches and tomatoes, but they work well together. (Tomatoes are technically fruits after all.)
  • cilantro – Cilantro is recommended here, but if you’re not a fan, you can use parsley or coriander… or just omit the cilantro.
  • kosher salt – Salt brings everything together.

Frequently Asked Questions:

I assume you might have a few questions about this recipe, so I have answered some here. If I missed anything, feel free to ask your question in the comments below. 

Do I use fresh or canned peaches?

You’ll want to stick with fresh peaches for this recipe. One of my favorite things about this salsa is how fresh and vibrant it tastes. You’ll lose that with canned peaches.

Do you peel the peaches before adding them to the salsa?

Peeling the peaches isn’t necessary for this recipe. The skins add color and texture to this dish. With that being said, if you prefer your peaches peeled, go for it.

How can I make this peach salsa spicy?

In the recipe below, I recommend removing the seeds and white pith inside of the jalapeño pepper. This is where the heat is in the jalapeño. If you want things hotter, leave some or all of the pith and seeds in the salsa. Want things even spicier, try using a habanero pepper.

How long can I store peach salsa?

I kept this in the refrigerator for about three days and it was still delicious. It does produce liquid as it sits, so depending on how you like your salsa, you may want to drain off some of that extra liquid.
