Peach Salsa Quesadillas and Pork

As seen in my previous blog post, I bought a LOT of peaches. Remember that scene from Forrest Gump about shrimp? “There’s shrimp etouffee, shrimp souflee, fried shrimp, boiled shrimp…” I’m beginning to feel this way with peaches.

I did not use all the ingredients I had originally intended to use…at least for the salsa. This recipe also took quite a bit of time–and a LOT of fine chopping skills. You really got to have a sharp knife.

  • Pork chops, doesn’t matter if they are bone-in or not
  • Kosher salt
  • Pepper
