Quesadilla with Peach Salsa and Sour Cream

I have been disappointed in the past with commercial peach salsas. I believe if it's in the title, it should be one of the FIRST ingredients, not one of the last.

Peach Salsa
Fresh sliced or diced peaches
Diced tomatoes
Diced green chillies (Optional-I like a little kick)
Lime or lemon juice
Cilantro (optional)

To make quesadillas:

Heat coconut oil to medium low heat
Add corn tortilla when hot (use white corn or OG to minimize GMO)
Add sliced or hand grated white cheese-I've used Mozzarella, Jack, Farmers and Fontina with success-Havarti and Swiss aren't good for this purpose IMO.

When cheese is melted and the tortilla is crisp, remove from heat and add salsa and a dollop of REAL sour cream if available.

Ingredient Spotlight: Tomatoes

  2. Two of my favorite things, salsa and peaches! Looks delicious.... Thanks for sharing with T4T.

  3. You did it exactly right, Jenny!! And yeah...YUM!! I love all of the fabulous flavors you've got going on here and thanks for the cheese recommendations. So glad you've joined us for Two for Tuesdays =)

  4. Agreed! How is it that they manage to pack so much junk into commercial salsa? I mean, it's so simple, and with the acid, should preserve on it's own. Sigh, I don't get it. But, then again, I don't have to because I make my own. Your recipe is so simple that I know it must taste good, and like peaches! Thank you for sharing it with Two for Tuesday.

  5. Whooo hooo! So glad to see you for the first time on the two for tuesday recipe blog hop! I actually used the Trader Joe's smokey peach salsa tonight on a fish dish and thought, man, i could so do better myself! I am totally gonna try your recipe! I am now following your blog and thanks so much for linking up! Alex@amoderatelife

  6. I didn't know peach salsa could be so simple to make - I love it! What a great simple recipe we would love to have for lunch! Thanks for linking to Two for Tuesdays!

  7. I totally agree with you about commercial peach salsas. And when it's so easy to make your own from scratch it's definitely worth it. Thanks for sharing this at Two for Tuesdays.
