Key Ingredients to Make Peach Jalapeno Salsa
- PEACHES – Opt for ripe peaches for the best flavor.
- RED ONION – For added crunch and mild spice.
- TOMATO – I told you that this salsa is hiding some vegetables!
- CILANTRO – It’s not a salsa recipe without the addition of cilantro. Okay, if you really don’t like it, you can skip it — but I do love the fresh flavor it brings to my jalapeno peach salsa recipe.
- JALAPENO – Bring on the heat! I recommend leaving the seeds and ribs in if you want more spice. Or feel free to use a habanero for a spicier salsa. If you don’t like spicy foods, you can omit them.
- FRESH LIME JUICE – Please use fresh and not the stuff from the bottle. Trust me on this one!
- SALT & PEPPER – To taste.

Tips for Picking the Best Peaches for Jalapeno Peach Salsa
You want ripe peaches, but they shouldn’t be overly ripe or they will just turn to mush.
- Choose peaches that are vibrant in color, without any signs of green.
- They should smell sweet. More scent means more flavor!
- Peaches should give slightly when you gently squeeze them. If they are hard, they aren’t ripe yet. If they’re really soft, they’re overripe and will not work in this recipe.
Sometimes, the store only has rock-hard peaches available. You can still make this recipe, you’ll just need to wait an extra day or two. Place the peaches on the counter on their “shoulders” (not their bottoms) out of direct sunlight to speed up the ripening process.
All recipes for peach salsa will vary slightly. Mine is made with peaches, tomato, onion, jalapeno, cilantro, and fresh lime juice. Easy peasy.
If you scored big on a grocery store sale or perhaps have a kind neighbor with a peach tree, there are so many dishes to try! Start with this jalapeno peach salsa recipe. You could also make peach pie, grilled peaches, or even peach ice cream!
With tortilla chips, atop tacos, in burritos…there are so many possibilities! You can use peach salsa exactly as you use regular salsa: as a dip or a condiment. I also love the idea of serving it on top of chicken, pork, or fish.
The jalapenos and lime juice in my recipe for peach salsa add a whole lot of flavor. If you want to add more, try vinegar, hot sauce, or even a pinch of sugar to create a more complex and unique flavor profile.
