2lbs3-4 medium ripe peaches$0.92
1/4medium red onion $0.19
1inchfresh ginger $0.13
3-4 1/4canchipotle peppers in adobo $0.32
1/2bunch cilantro $0.44

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.
