Chef Notes
I like to leave on the skin. It adds texture color, and the skins also contain a large portion of the nutrients. If you like however, you may peel the skin.  
Removing seeds of the peppers will reduce heat of jalapeños, and make for a cleaner presentation.
This recipe is best made immediately, as the peaches will begin to brown if not tossed in the lime.
