Print More

As temperatures rise and snow finally melts, it’s time to enjoy fresh spring snacks. Salsa is a quintessential warm weather treat: refreshing and light. Mexican food is great in restaurants but it’s also easy and fun to try cooking yourself. This recipe requires just one pan, one spoon and 10 minutes until it’s ready for your fiesta.

Roasted Corn Salsa

Preparation time: about 10 minutes

In a small skillet heat 1 tbsp of oil over medium heat and add the corn. Turn the heat up to high and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add 1/4 cup of the onions and cook until the corners start turning light brown, in 2-3 more minutes. Add the garlic, reduce the heat to medium-low and stir for 1 minute or until the garlic is light golden brown.

Add the tomato puree and lime juice and stir over low heat for one more minute.

Remove the salsa from the heat and stir in the rest of the ingredients.

Pour into a bowl and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Serve with tortilla chips.

Tip: To warm the tortilla chips, spread them on a baking sheet or foil and bake at 250* for about 5 minutes
