  • 2 cup cups of sweet corn kernels
  • 1/4 cup cup red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2 tbsp tablespoons fresh lime juice (adjust to taste)
  • 1 cup canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, finely minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin (small, Cara Cara, or Valencia)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder


  • Prepare the Corn: If using fresh corn, you can grill it on the cob or remove the kernels and cook them in a pan until they become slightly charred and golden. If using frozen corn, thaw it, and if using canned corn, drain it well. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
  • Chop and Prepare: Finely chop the red onion and fresh cilantro. Mince the chipotle peppers, and be sure to remove the seeds if you prefer less heat.
  • Combine Ingredients: In a mixing bowl, combine the sweet corn kernels, chopped red onion, fresh cilantro, and minced chipotle peppers.
  • Add Flavor: Squeeze fresh lime juice over the mixture. Start with 2 tablespoons and add more to taste. The lime juice adds a zesty kick to the salsa.
  • Season: Sprinkle in the ground cumin, salt, black pepper, and garlic powder. These seasonings will infuse the salsa with smoky and savory flavors.
  • Mix Well: Gently toss all the ingredients together until they are evenly coated with lime juice and the seasonings are well distributed.
  • Taste and Adjust: Give the corn salsa a taste test and adjust the seasoning to your liking. You can add more salt, lime juice, or minced chipotle peppers to suit your preferences.
  • Chill and Rest: Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a lid and refrigerate the corn salsa for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld. This step enhances the taste and ensures a more authentic Chipotle experience.
  • Serve: Once chilled, your homemade Chipotle-style corn salsa is ready to be served. Use it as a topping for tacos, burritos, grilled chicken, or as a dip with tortilla chips.


Enjoy the smoky heat and bright flavors of this homemade corn salsa reminiscent of Chipotle’s signature condiment. It’s a versatile addition to your culinary repertoire, perfect for adding a burst of flavor to a variety of dishes.
