Look at those picture perfect beautiful Colorado peaches.

Look at those picture-perfect beautiful Colorado peaches.

I bought a case of Colorado West Slope Peaches and have been trying like heck to get them used up.  Cooked… sliced…grilled…I’ve frozen a couple of bags and yipee, this recipe used one more whole peach!  17 down, 13 to go.

I call it Peacho de Gallo.  This really ended up being delicious.  I grilled pork chops last night and served them topped with a spoonful of my new creation; Peacho de Gallo.  I think I’m so clever, let’s all say it together, one more time…Peacho de Gallo

5 medium tomatoes, chopped
1 peach, peeled and diced
1/2 sweet onion, diced
1 lime, juiced
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 Serrano chile, seeded and minced
2 Tbsp minced roasted Hatch Chiles
2 chipotle chiles in adobo, seeded and minced
1 1/2 tsp adobo sauce (from the can of chipotles in adobo)
1 garlic clove, minced

Add 1 tsp sugar and 1/2 tsp salt.

In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients. Stir well to combine. I used fresh tomatoes from my garden, when chopped they produce quite abit of juice.  I did drain that off before mixing in with the rest of the ingredients.   I think this will keep in the refrigerator for at least a week?  Everyone agree?  I think next time I’ll juice 1/2 lime and zest the other half.  I ended up adding the sugar because I thought it was a little too lime-ie.  Note: 

Whole Foods is the only place I can find that are roasting Hatch Chiles.  Our Farmer’s Markets have Colorado grown and roasted chiles.  Those are very good too, I just love the Hatch.  Special flavor.  If you want to learn more about Hatch Chiles, click here.

This is also very good with Tortilla Chips.  And cute bowl alert – my friend Cauleen gave me the bowl for Christmas two years ago.  LOVE it.

  1. What a cute and perfect bowl! I love the idea of PEACHO de gallo! I always get a jar of the Smokey Peach Salsa at Trader Joe’s cuz I just love the extra sweetness from the peaches. YUM YUM!

    • So jealous. Colorado doesn’t have Trader Joes. :-/

      Thanks for the comment and visiting my blog.

  2. Yum! I made a simular salsa when I lived in California , but mine did not have the roasted Hatch chilis and adobo. I love this!!

  3. Looks fantastic 🙂

  4. Looks fantastic 😛

  5. Lea Ann,

    Sounds and looks yummy…

    I have another thought for your peaches… I made a salad for myself with bite sized pieces of peach, cucumber and avocado. Tossed it with a little Paul Newman’s Ceasar salad dressing.

  6. Great balls of fire! Sounds spicily delicious 🙂 I bet that peacho de gallo was great on the pork chops. Maybe on some pulled pork tacos…yum! I really like this peacho de gallo recipe. I’m having a teeny bit of fun saying peacho de gallo. Try typing it fast five times 😉

  7. peacho de gallo. ? !

    I now un-apologize for every goofy thing I’ve ever said around you.

    I like it.

  8. I bet this is sweet and delicious!

  9. What a clever idea and I know it must have tasted wonderful with your pork chops!

  10. Now that Lea Ann, looks really good.
