Copycat Recipe: Chipole Corn Salsa | Delish D'Lites

I LOVE Chipotle! (then again, who doesn’t?)  There’s nothing more satisfying than taking restaurant inspired dishes and recreating them at home.  Then, you can have them whenever you want! My favorite topping at Chipotle is their spicy corn salsa, so I knew I had to make it at home. 

ingredients

1 ½ cups corn kernels
1/4 cup finely diced red onion
1 jalapeno, seeded and finely diced
1/3 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
Juice of 1 lime
salt and pepper to taste

directions

Combine all the ingredients, then season with salt and pepper to taste.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.  You can serve this with tacos, quesadillas, burritos, fajitas, burrito bowls, salads, as a side dish, the possibilities are endless!

Leftovers are great for making Chicken Tortilla Soup, or as a side dish for my Ancho Chile Rubbed Skirt Steak.

  1. Can’t wait to try this.. I always ask for two scoops. One question what kind of kernels do you use? Can I use frozen (I prefer them over canned) and do I cook them according to the recipe the first or are they uncooked?

        1. Hi Melissa I wouldn’t freeze the finished product, but you can definitely freeze the corn by itself and then thaw it when you’re ready to make the salsa.

          1. I was thinking of canning it jars, but I don’t know if you heat all of this up or not, what do you think

          2. Yea I wouldn’t suggest that, this is the sort of dish that should be made right before you eat it, the freshness is a key part of the deliciousness of it!
