So, I kind of have a Chipotle obsession. Okay, more like an addition. I get the veggie burrito bowl every time, and one of my favorite things in the bowl is Chipotle’s corn salsa. SO GOOD.
As I was browsing Pinterest
one day every single day, I came across a copycat recipe. Yes! I tried it out for a tailgate, just for dipping with chips, and it was a big hit. Absolutely delicious. Thank you howsweeteats.com for the great recipe!
1 12-ounce bag of frozen sweet yellow corn, defrosted and drained
2 medium-sized jalapenos, seeded and chopped
1/2 red onion, finely chopped (about 1/3 cup)
3/4 cup fresh cilantro, torn or chopped
juice of 2 limes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix. Season with additional salt and pepper, cilantro, jalapeno or lime based on what you or your guests (just kidding, this is your food! 🙂 ) like best.
I made this the night before the tailgate and storing it in the fridge overnight really let the flavors combine and made it extra great. I may have eaten some for breakfast….shhhh.
As with most cooking, I recommend enjoying a nice beverage too. I was drinking a Gluten-Free Omission Beer.
