I love peach salsa, but I don’t bother making it much anymore since I can’t just shovel it into my mouth with tortilla chips. I mean, peaches, tomatoes, and onions? Who thought of that? It sounds weird, but tastes amazing. It used to be one of my favorite snacks. But salsa is used for more than just chips: You’ll see recipes featuring it on fish or chicken if you browse around any big food site long enough. So now, this Chili Pork with Peach Salsa is my favorite way to get some of that oh-so-delicious condiment into my life. The list of ingredients may look daunting, but that’s only because there are so many spices adding depth and heat to this very simple dish. Plus, it’s ready in about 30 minutes, which makes it a great choice for a busy weeknight! In addition to serving it on wraps or in a soup with whatever toppings sound good to you (avocado, for one!), here are some side dishes that work well with its flavors:
