Chipotle Corn Salsa Recipe

This recipe for Chipotle Corn Salsa is a great blend of sweet and spicy flavours from the Chipotle menu prices. This dip or topping for tacos, quesadillas, burritos, and other Mexican dishes is easy to make and tastes fresh.

Chipotle Corn Salsa Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups fresh or thawed frozen corn kernels
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup red onion, finely diced
  • 1/2 jalapeno, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice, freshly squeezed

How To Make Chipotle Corn Salsa

Step 1: Salt the corn

Mix the corn kernels with 1 teaspoon of Kosher salt in a small bowl. Set aside.

Editor’s Tip: If you’re using frozen corn, try to drain and squeeze out as much extra water as you can before you salt it.

Step 2: Mix

In a separate small bowl, stir together the red onion, jalapeno, cilantro and lime juice.

Step 3: Combine

Add the onion-jalapeno mixture to the salted corn and toss it together. Season with additional salt and lime juice to taste.

Step 4: Chill

Put the salsa in the fridge and cover it with plastic wrap. Give the salsa at least an hour to cool down before serving.

Editor’s Tip: If you don’t have much time, you can serve the salsa as soon as you mix the ingredients. But when we tried it, we thought the flavours went well together after being in the fridge for a while.

Some people think that Chipotle makes their food with lemon juice and diced roasted poblano peppers.

We decided to leave them out of our version & the salsa we made tasted almost the same as the salsa we bought at our local Chipotle. But if you think a little lemon and roasted poblano sound good, go ahead and add them.

You can also make this copycat recipe your own by roasting fresh corn on the grill or in the oven before adding it to the salsa. This gives each bite an extra layer of fire-roasted flavour.
