Chipotle Corn Salsa Yumminess

“Um…can I have a little more corn salsa please?” That’s me every time we go to Chipotle. I’m a sucker for a good sweet/savory combo and their corn salsa takes the cake. The crunchy sweetness of the corn mixed with a spicy jalapeño and lime flavor is just divine. But alas, the nearest Chipotle is a 40 minute drive, so I decided to take matters into my own hands and make my own and the cookout we’re having today with our “bestest” friends on our new patio was the perfect excuse. Not too shabby if I do say so myself. Here’s the recipe;

Large package of frozen corn, thawed
1 jalapeño, finely diced
about 1/2 C. red onion, finely diced
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
juice of one lime (roll it on the counter first, this helps release the juices)
a handful of fresh cilantro, chopped
1/2 tsp kosher salt (taste it, you may need more)
a lil’ black pepper

Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Allow to sit in the fridge until ready to use. Doesn’t get much easier than that!
