“fresh tex mex salsa recipe fresh black bean salsa recipe”

Trifle may be a traditional dessert, but this Georgia Peach Trifle brings a true Southern flair, and some distinctly Southern flavors, to this sweet favorite. It starts with layers of pound cake—perfect for soaking up a drizzle of our favorite Southern spirit, bourbon. Then, juicy peaches and creamy vanilla pudding meld together in layer upon layer of elegance. This presentation is beautiful, but it will be the bourbon-peach combination, and the cake and pudding textures, that have everyone coming back for seconds. This dessert will be sweet like a Georgia peach, and just a little decadent.
Simple chopping and mixing is all that is required. And while you can serve it right away, I think it gets better to let the ingredients marinate together–have a little party if you will. Adjust heat to your liking. The recipe below is fairly mild, but if you like it spicy, add more pepper and/or jalapeno. And make sure you use ripe peaches. It makes all the difference in the world.
Never made my own salsa before, I have always been lazy and store bought it… but if the recipe is this easy, quick and delicious it is definitely something that I will be making from scratch next time!
This peach salsa is so easy to make. Just chop up some tomatoes and a peach, add some red onion and fresh corn kernels, some fresh cilantro and garlic, and stir in lime juice, zest, salt, and pepper. Because the salt draws the liquid out of the veggies, it will become more “soupy” the longer it sits. This isn’t a bad thing- just stir right before serving in order to distribute the flavors.
Grilled peaches served atop a bed of arugula make for a great summertime salad.  This recipe adds in more unexpected flavors. Gorgonzola cheese is a creamy, rich, and salty addition that gets grilled into the center of every peach. Toasted pecans bring in nutty goodness and a welcome crunch when they are sprinkled on top of the peach-and-gorgonzola combination, but everything is brought together when sweet honey is drizzled on top. Finally, to add that little spice, fresh, chopped chives are sprinkled over it all, giving this Summer Grilled Peach Salad tastes that are sweet, smoky, toasty, and spicy in each mouthwatering bite.
You know Helen, I asked my sister-in-law (my brother’s wife) who Benny might be and she had no idea. So things don’t look good. But you never know. 🙂 This really is a great version, and the story is even better. Hope you’re doing well!
For mild pico de gallo, try yellow or orange bell peppers instead of hot peppers. For medium-spicy salsa, choose jalapenos. Serrano peppers are a good choice for very spicy salsa. For fiery hot pico de gallo, experiment with habaneros.
A serving of pico de gallo, made from a quarter-cup of onions, three-quarters of a cup of diced tomatoes and 2 tablespoons each of diced hot chili peppers and fresh lime juice, contains just 56 calories and less than half a gram of total fat. It provides 3 grams of dietary fiber, a type of carbohydrate associated with a lower risk of heart disease. Pico de gallo contains little protein when served on its own — just 3 grams — but topping it with 3 ounces of shrimp adds 20 grams of protein to your meal. This protein helps to nourish your muscle tissue and helps maintain your hormone balance to keep you healthy.
Salsa/Pico recipes like this are also surprisingly good using diced canned tomatoes. If you haven’t tried this trust me it will taste nearly as good as fresh. I frequently add green peppers for a more trad salsa. Lime/or Lemon juice is key as it makes it taste brighter. – 6/18/08
Divide the ingredients (except for the peaches and cilantro) into 3 batches so they will fit into a food processor. For each batch, halve or quarter 4 cloves garlic, 2 onions, 2 jalapenos and 2 bell peppers and throw into a food processor. Add 1 teaspoon each chili powder, salt and pepper. Squeeze in the juice from 4 limes and pulse. Pour the salsa into a very large container and repeat with the remaining 2 batches.

I’ll have to try the garlic paste. I like a lot of color in my salsa so I use white, yellow, and red onions. Sometimes I also use red and yellow bell peppers. I like mix up my peppers, usually using both Jalapeño and Serrano, but whatever peppers are in the garden get used (manzanita, Fresno, Hungarian etc.). My 2 major tips when people ask for my salsa recipe are these: you have to start with good flavorful tomatoes and I use lots of black pepper. My favorite salsa tomato is a Cherokee Purple.
Pico de Gallo is a fresh tomato salsa and is something we keep in our fridge at all times. It’s simple and quick to make and works with just about anything. Scoop it up with tortilla chips or serve on top of your favorite tacos, enchiladas or nachos.
Savingkathy, this dish is best when made with homegrown tomatoes, although it will also work with grocery store tomatoes. Just add garlic and plenty of lemon juice to make up for the lack of tomato flavor. : ) I’ve also made it with canned tomatoes and was still pleased with how it turned out.
Mexican food is my favorite, so I make it alllll the time. Most of the time, whatever I’ve made, I feel like it just HAS to be topped with my beloved sour cream (pretty sure that’s not authentic, buuuuut I love it) and of course, some sort of salsa or pico de gallo.
And before you start to worry about the prep time, let me reassure you: making this stuff is as fast and easy as chopping the veggies and mixing them in a bowl. It needs to chill for an hour, but you don’t need to watch it. Just go check your e-mail, or play with your kids, or whatever. In an hour, your Pico de Gallo will be ready to serve up with tortilla chips or your favorite Mexican dish.
This amazing peach pie may seem like it takes a little preparation time, but once you have your first bite you will know it is worth it. Filled with sweet, cinnamon-covered peaches, and encased in a crisp, buttery, golden-brown crust, this Brown Sugar-Cinnamon Peach Pie is a delight. Decorate the top with leaves cut from the leftover crust and sprinkled with granulated sugar. You will love the delicate sweetness you get with every bite. Serve this to-die-for peach pie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream sprinkled with candied or toasted pecans.
I love to explore international cuisines and discover new flavours. On this blog you’ll find simple recipes that are influenced by my experiences with different foods. Hopefully you enjoy them as much as I do. Thanks for being here!
I’ve had this recipe before prepared by a friend. I just didn’t know that it’s called pico de gallo. Until now, I just thought of it as my usual salsa. While TexMex dishes aren’t too common where I come from, I certainly enjoy this salsa treat with my Nachos. This is usually what I have every time I fancy myself going to a Mexican-themed restaurants here. But reading through the recipe, I think my lack of kitchen skills will do just fine making this on my own! Now time to buy some tortilla chips.
I owe each of you a giant thank you. Thank you for visiting, commenting and sharing my recipes with your friends and family. I literally wouldn’t have posted more recipes if it weren’t for those comments way back when. Your comments, emails and Instagrams keep me motivated even when the going gets tough and your visits let me do what I love for a living. Thank you.
This is a chunky salsa, almost like a salad, rather than one pulverized in your blender. If you like a thinner salsa, I’d recommend giving the ingredients a few pulses in your food processor (this will also negate the need to chop beforehand), or taking a scoop out, blending it until thin, and adding it back into the mixture. I thought the chunkiness was great for the tacos because it didn’t make them soggy and added a lot of texture.
This was a great late summer meal that took exceptional advantage of tomato season. I wouldn’t bother making it at any other time of the year in Minnesota as it’s the just picked tomatoes and basil that make this such a winner. I used chevre instead of ricotta, and added a dash of balsamic to the salsa.
I didn’t know until we came home, and I did a quick Google search (I didn’t have internet access there). It turns out that this resort company is notorious for keeping people in the presentation room for hours if they refuse to make a purchase. When my parents refused to buy from the first sales rep, they brought in a rep who has a similar cultural background, who could connect with my parents as a “friend” and make them feel secure out their purchase (which they did end up buying, unfortunately). It wasn’t until much later that we remembered that they had asked us about our cultural background at the breakfast – sneaky!
Invest in a good sturdy cutting board. I use one that is flexible and easy to clean. My husband is famous for shredding up my cutting boards and marking them up since we have really sharp knives. I have invested in this affordable cutting board and so far so good! It’s even big enough for when he’s chopping watermelon.
although you decide to use jalape�os or serranos, if you put on the table and press gently with your hand and move front and back you are “toreandolos” or “making it angry” thus bettering flavor and making it more hotter, you could remove the seeds if you like, but part of the flavor go with it.
Yum! Really, really good, especially with the fresh homemade ricotta. I added a teaspoon of balsamic vinegar (yes, just a teaspoon!) and didn’t put the whole pound of pasta into the sauce, so the dish was a little saucier; other than that, I pretty much followed the recipe. The homemade ricotta was easy and delicious. It’s also salt-free, so if you’re making it, you may not want to reduce the amount of salt in the salsa cruda.
When working with a limited palette, good ingredients make all the difference. We call for vanilla beans here because they impart fragrance and thousands of tiny, flavorful specks. They’re worth the splurge, but feel free to substitute 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract for the beans. And if you like, trade the homemade whipped cream for a scoop of ice cream. What’s so beautiful about this dish is how it is presented: peaches and cherries that have soaked in a beautiful Riesling mixture are dolloped with whipped cream. They look gorgeous and taste even better.
One of my most cherished gifts is the recipe box I received at my bridal shower over a decade ago. It is filled with hand written recipes that my friends and family thought I may enjoy. There is one from my friend for her mom’s rock candy we made together every Christmas growing up, a few of my husband’s childhood favorites from his side of the family, and a few “date night” meals. I love looking at them and thinking of each person who celebrated our marriage. Many of the recipes I LOVE and have made them dozens of times over the 13 years I have been married.
