Chipotle Corn Salsa Recipe

The ideal appetizer or snack is Chipotle Corn Salsa, which is prepared with sweet corn, lime, and spicy, crunchy jalapeno peppers.
It only takes a few minutes to chop up some ingredients and combine them in a dish to make your own salsa. Cooking is not required. Simply combine, let it chill, and then devour the finest salsa you’ve ever had.

There are only a few ingredients required for this fast and simple Chipotle corn salsa recipe, most of which you probably already have in your pantry.
It has all the same vibrant flavors as the restaurant version, with the additional advantage of being able to control the quality of the ingredients. Nothing extravagant is necessary.

Only corn, red onion, cilantro, peppers, and lime juice are necessary. This is one of the best recipes to share with everyone because it combines lemon and citrus with cilantro and the other ingredients.

Recipe variations:

  • Poblano: Although Chipotle’s corn salsa recipe uses jalapenos, you can use poblano peppers instead if you don’t like high heat. 
  • Citrus: You can use any citrus juice you like for this recipe.
  • Frozen: Feel free to use frozen corn instead of canned. 
  • Other corn: Also, you could use sweet white corn instead of yellow. 
  • Beans: Add a cup of cooked black beans for a heartier salsa.
  • Veggies: You could also add other veggies like tomatoes or red bell pepper.

How to serve:

This makes the perfect addition to any appetizer from chips to taco salads. Try one of our favorite serving suggestions or one of your own.

  • Serve with chips or veggies at your next game night or family dinner. 
  • If you would rather have it soupier like other salsa recipes instead of Pico de Gallo add a cup of minced tomatoes to the recipe. 
  • Or mix this in with cilantro lime rice and some chicken or pork for a hearty main entrée. 
  • Serve with taco shells, meat, and your favorite, toppings for taco night.
