Corn Salsa

Corn Salsa

This corn salsa is so surprisingly easy to make, yet totally bursting with summer flavors. It’s sweet, spicy, crunchy, and loaded with fresh veggies. It’s a lot like the corn salsa you get at Chipotle, so it’s perfect as a dip with tortilla chips, in Mexican bowls or tacos, or on a taco salad. This salsa can be made with fresh, frozen, or canned corn, so it’s a breeze to throw together.

What Makes This Recipe So Good

Corn – Sweet, crunchy, and bursting with the flavors of summer, corn is the perfect base for a salty and spicy salsa.
Red onion – Red onions are lightly sweet, but still have the tart onion flavor you love. They hold up well with the other ingredients and lime juice and stay nice and crispy.
Lime juice – The tart sweetness of lime juice brings out a nice brightness and makes the other flavors in this salad pop.
Cilantro – The peppery, slightly minty flavor of cilantro is great in Latin American dishes.
Jalapeño – A spicy pepper takes this salsa up a notch without overwhelming the other flavors with heat. Remember to deseed your jalapeño if you don’t like a lot of spice!
Cumin – Aromatic, warm, and both earthy and sweet, cumin is a perfect Mexican seasoning for this savory salsa.
