Corn Salsa Rip-Off

I should probably post more often.

I have pictures of things I've made in the past few weeks, I just haven't gotten around to posting them.

One of the things I've made in the past few weeks is corn salsa! It's pretty much my rip-off version of how I assume chipotle makes theirs...

It's really easy to make, and the recipe is somewhat vague... You can adjust things to your taste, and you really just throw some stuff in a bowl, let it sit, then enjoy...

1 Bag Frozen Corn DO NOT DEFROST (not the 5 lb. economy size, just the standard bag. If I were thinking I would have taken note on the actual size before throwing it away)
1 or 2 Jalapeños Diced (discard the seeds for less heat, keep 'em if you like it hot)
1/4 to 1/2 Cup Onion Diced
Juice of 1/2 to 1 Lime
Handful of Cilantro Chopped
1 to 3 TBSP Kosher Salt

After dicing the onion, jalapeño and cilantro, place into bowl with the bag of still frozen corn (choose bowl large enough to hold the recipe).  Add the juice of 1/2 a lime, and mix until the corn, onion, jalapeño and cilantro are well mixed and coated in lime juice, if you feel like you need more lime juice, add more! Once you've settled on the lime juice amount, add your salt, and toss again.

Once all ingredients are mixed, leave on counter to defrost (or in fridge if not using that day)... As the corn defrosts, it soaks up the lime juice, salt, and cilantro flavors. Its pretty damn good, and tastes a hell of a lot like Chipotle's corn salsa.

I figured this out after Jon and I decided to try and replicate a Chipotle dinner at home one night... this time though, we had cheese quesadillas with black beans and cilantro lime rice. It was damn good.

So other than this, I made something really cute for my niece and a super tasty treat.

Oh, and my friend Ashley had a birthday party for her dog... It was the cutest effing thing ever. All the dogs got to frolic and play, and their people sat and ate and talked while they galavanted about our feet. And, OH AND, there were PUPCAKES! Cupcakes friendly for dog consumption! Oslo really enjoyed it, and it may inspire me to make doggy things.

  1. When I get more time, I would like to make more treats for Hammy. I made some before, but they molded before I could use them all. I want to make my own Frosty Paw treats!
