Sweet Corn Salsa

This sweet corn salsa reminds of the corn salsa that Chipotle serves.  This sweet corn salsa is great with chips or on taco salad or on anything Mexican.  I love the subtle sweetness in it!  I adapted this recipe from a food blog called  Simply Scratch -Kristin

1 T. olive oil
1 poblano pepper, halved

2 cups corn, frozen
1 jalepeno pepper, halved, seeded and diced
3 T. finely diced red onion
1 T. roughly chopped cilantro
1/2-1 lime, juiced
1/2 t. sugar, or more or less to taste
Kosher salt, to taste

  • Place the frozen corn in a glass dish and defrost in microwave for just a few minutes.  Drain any extra liquid.
  • Preheat the broiler.
  • Brush the poblano pepper with the oil and broil for just a couple minutes till just a bit softened.  Let it cool, seed it and dice it up.  (You could also do this on the grill)
  • Mix together with all the remaining ingredients.
