Attention Taco Lovers!

I make tacos almost every week since my husband and I moved from California to New England. I have become quite adept at making corn tortillas by hand. I know that many of you also share my passion for homemade tacos. This week I'm making spicy chicken tacos. I'd like to pair the chicken with a really nice salsa (perhaps w/ fruit) to balance the heat. Any suggestions? Thank you!

Might be a bit early for peaches/nectarines, but how about a peach or nectarine salsa?

I haven't tried this but savorthis includes a quick recipe for pineapple salsa here: https://food52.com/recipes....
I would just chop onion, chilis, cilantro, add a squeeze of lime if necessary after tasting--the pineapple may be enough.
For mango, a friend of mine makes a delicious salsa with chopped mango, tomatoes, onions, cilantro and lime juice. If she doesn't have cilantro she uses dried herbs (possibly even basil, though you wouldn't expect it) and it's just as delicious--I can't stop eating it. Simple.

Thank you, Lisanne! This recipe looks delicious. I'm attempting to create sunshine on my plate despite a very gray and rainy Spring here in the Berkshires.
