Spicy Tomato Chutney combines garden fresh tomatoes with peppers, onions and spices for a chutney that’s perfect topped on seafood, steak or on your next cheeseboard!
When you have a garden bounty of tomatoes, peppers and onions, one of the best things you can throw together is chutney.
Not only is it a quick way to use up an abundance of garden bounty, it tastes amazing on almost everything it comes into contact with – especially a cheeseboard.
If you are asking yourself if chutney and cheese go together… my answer is easy: heck yeah! In fact, chutney pairs amazing! It’s super delicious on steak, chicken, seafood, or next to your favorite side dish.
For this recipe, I relied on roma tomatoes, since that was my bounty.
I also included some color from the bell peppers – you can use any color bell peppers, but I opted for one red and one yellow. If you have extra bell peppers feel free to dice them and add for extra flavor. The jalapeño pepper can be substituted with a Serrano pepper, or even a habanero (for even more heat).
Serve this chutney a variety of ways:
- on your next cheeseboard (think crackers, cream cheese and chutney!)
- with seafood
- as a condiment for grilled steak
- next to your grilled chicken
- as a topping for your baked potatoes, rice or .. favorite side dish
