27 Sep Easy Peach Salsa & Homemade Tortilla Chips Recipe
Yes, it’s yet another peach recipe, lol. I brought a 20 lbs pound box of peaches back from my Okanagan vacation this summer and could not resist using these fragrant, juicy peaches in a variety of ways. The hardest part was deciding which recipe I wanted to make with these little beauties.
Peach Salsa with good chips is a great late afternoon snack, the natural sugars in the peaches provide a little energy pick-me-up to get through the rest of my work day, not to mention it just feels like I am really treating myself with chips and dip. This is also a quick and easy appetizer to take to your next event or when you have company coming over.
This salsa is packed with nutritional goodness. Peaches are high in calcium, magnesium, and potassium which support heart and bone health. From this one cup of black beans, you get a powerhouse combination of 15 grams of fiber and 15 grams of protein (the same as 2 ounces of chicken) which supports a healthy gastrointestinal system and blood sugar regulation. I love, love cilantro! it contains many phytonutrients such as quercetin that provide antioxidants while also providing antimicrobial properties from a compound called dodecenal. Now I understand not everyone is a fan of cilantro, so swap it out for parsley and it’s still a great salsa. Happy healthy snacking!
