Last year it was Italian and this year we have decided to try Mexican. I had this recipe I made this summer and wanted to try it out again on my gang to see if it would be good for our dinner.

The last time I made them I had fresh peaches on hand. However, using frozen peaches worked just fine. The peaches and mild onions combine for the perfect sweet and savory combination.
