Very special, especially for such common ingredients - but in spite of the 'common' nature of the ingredients, we had to modify quite a bit because of what was on hand. We had a big carton of *fresh* peaches from a friend's tree to use up - thus a search of 'peach' recipes (so no canned peaches were used). Moreover, we had no chicken - just fish. So, fish is what we used. Used a yellow onion instead of a red pepper. Plus we had to use apple juice concentrate and lime juice in place of the OJ. Great anyway, though we doubled the picante&juice! Really eager to try recipe as written though, just for a comparison. I baked the fish and prep'd the sauce in a skillet while the fish cooked. Served over black beans and rice. My husband says this is nice enough for one of our special dinners when we keep the kids busy with a movie of an evening. Will serve again with a green salad topped with a dressing made of jalapeno jelly and brown mustard. I do want to try this recipe as written just for a comparison - and since we don't always have fresh peaches, will do so. Oh...., we have a garden and had one piece of okra to use up. I sliced it up and sauteed it before putting in the onion, oh, and garlic. The okra didn't bother myself or my husband, but our 14 yo son could actually taste okra in each bite of peach, so he didn't care for that. In spite of that, though, that son had three helpings! It must not have been too bad..... *grin* Thanks for such a nice change of pace!
