Who doesn’t love a sweet, juicy peach during the summer?  Seriously, if you don’t like peaches I am curious as to why not?  I get pretty excited the first time I see the stocked peaches at the grocery store.  Chase loves peaches, he would eat 10 in one sitting if we let him.  They are frequent visitors on our dinner plates (and breakfast and snacks for me) during the summer.  A fresh cut up peach stirred into some yogurt with a bit of granola – such a yummy (and healthy!) breakfast.

What’s in a peach?

For a medium peach, there is about 60 calories.  These delicious gems contain a dose of vitamin c, potassium and vitamin A.  If you need a bit more fiber in your diet, grab a peach!  Nutrients in peaches aid in inflammation and help lower your cholesterol.  Careful however, because they do contain sugar, but it nature’s sugar so no added crap here.  The peach is actually from the rose family, originating from China.  China & Italy are the top peach growers.  Be careful not to eat that pit though!  They are poisonous, but if you dry it out on the counter then put it in the fridge for a bit, plant it and you could maybe have yourself a little peach tree!  You will have to move south to keep it growing and if you are lucky it may sprout.

So there’s a bit of peach info for you, now onto the recipe!

I love incorporating peaches into different recipes, their unique flavor is subtle, yet noticeable.  In addition, they add the perfect amount of sweetness to a recipe.  Two summers ago, Chase and I grilled some chicken and topped it with a peach salsa of sorts.  We left it raw and it was a refreshing touch to the smokey chicken.

This time around, I wanted to combine it with the smokey and spiciness of chipotle peppers.  If you aren’t a big spicy food fan, this isn’t quite your recipe, but there’s an easy switch!  Just eliminate the chipotle pepper :)  The peaches are cooked on the stove until melted, their natural sugars completely exposed.  A quick pulse in a food processor and this meal’s star is ready.  Definitely another Dinner in 20!  I hope you enjoy my perfect summer BBQ recipe!
