Total Cost: $2.67 recipe / $0.45 serving
Servings: 6

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs 3-4 medium ripe peaches $0.92
  • 1/4 medium red onion $0.19
  • 3 cloves garlic $0.18
  • 1 inch fresh ginger $0.13
  • 3-4 1/4 can chipotle peppers in adobo $0.32
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro $0.44
  • 1 medium lime $0.44
  • 1/4 tsp salt $0.05

Instructions

  • Rinse the peaches, cut into quarters and peel (a sharp paring knife works best for this). Cut the peeled quarters into a small dice. Place the diced peaches in a bowl.
  • Cut 1/4 of a red onion into as small of a dice as possible then roughly chop to achieve very small pieces. Peel one inch of the ginger and grate into the bowl (use a small cheese grater or microplane, see photos below). Peel and grate the garlic into the bowl as well. Stir everything together.
  • Pick the leaves off of half a bunch of cilantro and roughly chop. Add to the salsa bowl and stir. Juice the lime into the bowl and stir again.
  • Open the can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. Pull out 2-4 peppers (depending on how spicy you like it), chop them up and add to the bowl. Start with two peppers, taste the salsa and add more if desired. Add 1/4 tsp of salt, stir and add more if desired.
  • Let the salsa refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving to let the flavors blend.
