BBQ Chicken and Peach Quesadillas with Spicy Peach Salsa

August is National Peach Month, and finally the peaches are on sale and actually look good at the stores!

Peaches are full of wonderful healthy nutrients. In fact, they contain salicylates, which are the same compounds in aspirin. It’s believed these compounds may discourage blood clots from forming.

Normally, I use peaches for desserts, but today I wanted to use this for something savory.

This juicy peach salsa tastes great with this BBQ Chicken and Peach Quesadilla!

  1. There is something wonderfully nostalgic about fitting two Antique Basin Taps rather than a mixer. This pair looks beautifully traditional and functional, but the warm brass is also bang on trend. Unlike a basin Antique Kitchen Taps, these sit up high, so there’s space to wash big pots and pans beneath..
