Peaches, like most fruit, contain natural antioxidants that help our bodies build a defense against diseases and illnesses. Fresh peaches are a moderate source of antioxidants and vitamin C which is required for the building of connective tissue throughout our bodies. Peaches can also help curb sugar intake because of their natural sweetness, with only about 50 calories per fruit. Poblano peppers are also rich in vitamin C and contain other antioxidants that have cancer fighting properties, particularly an antioxidant called quercetin. These peppers are not too spicy, having a score of 2,000 on the Scoville scale, which makes them a tad milder than a jalapeño pepper. When ripened to red and dried, these poblano peppers are known as ancho peppers. You can top this sweet and spicy salsa over grilled salmon, tuna, or chicken breast or have it with your favorite tortilla chips.
