Copycat Chipotle Sweet Corn Salsa


The sweet corn salsa is an absolute must on my burrito at Chipotle so I have tried recreating this deliciousness using quite a few different recipes many times.  However, every single one I tried was just missing something!  Finally, after adjusting ingredients here and there I decided to try adding 1 teaspoon of sugar to the mix, (since that is what I do with my fresh tomato salsa and it just seems to elevate it), and I can't tell you what a difference that made!  Success!  It's finally perfect. 😈

Ingredients:
  • 16 oz bag of frozen corn
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and finely diced
  • 1/2 cup finely diced red onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper
  • 1 tsp sugar
Instructions:
  1. Put the corn in a colander and run cold water over for a couple of minutes to partially defrost it.
  2. Toss everything together in a bowl and mix well.  
  3. Cover tightly and store in the refrigerator until time to serve!

Note:  You can also add some canned black beans and/orchopped tomatoes to this to bulk it up as a salad if you like!  Just drain and rinse the beans before stirring in.
