Roasted Peach Salsa

I love making sauces and salsas as anyone who reads my blog would realize by now.  One of the best things about making fresh salsa, whether raw or roasted, is the room for creativity.  The flavor combinations are limitless.  Although I consider this recipe to be fairly traditional, it makes a bold statement with it's high heat level from Serranos and cooling sensation of summer peaches.  Go make some.  You will be so glad you did.

Roasted Peach Salsa
6 medium tomatoes (any variety)
8 small multi-colored sweet bell peppers
2 medium yellow onions
6-8 serrano chili peppers (remove stems, ribs and seeds, wear rubber gloves)
2 fresh peaches (peeled and sliced or use canned)
Splash of olive or canola oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
Juice of 2 limes (add at the end)
Cilantro finely chopped (add at the end)
Dash of sugar (optional)

Preheat oven to BROIL.  Rough chop all ingredients, coat with oil, salt, pepper and sugar in largest pan you have. ROAST in broiler on middle rack for 8-10 minutes (watch closely) or until some skins begin to blister.  Remove from oven and allow to cool.  In batches, pulse mixture in food processor until it is desired CHUNKY consistency.  Be careful not to puree your mixture unless you want liquid salsa (which would still taste AMAZING!!). Voila.  Easy as pie.
