How to Make Chipotle Roasted Chili Corn Salsa? Ingredients:

  • 4 ears of fresh corn, husks removed
  • 2 medium red bell peppers, diced
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika (optional for extra smokiness)

Step-by-Step Instructions for Chipotle Roasted Chili Corn Salsa:

  1. Preheat your grill or broiler. Brush the corn with a little olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill the corn, turning occasionally, until it’s nicely charred and cooked, about 10-15 minutes.
  2. Once the corn is cool enough to handle, cut the kernels off the cob and place them in a large bowl.
  3. To the bowl, add the diced red bell peppers, chopped red onion, chipotle peppers, and fresh cilantro. Give everything a good mix.
  4. Drizzle the lime juice over the mixture and season with salt, pepper, and smoked paprika if using. Toss everything together until well combined.
  5. Taste and adjust the seasoning if necessary. Let the salsa sit for a bit before serving to allow the flavors to meld together.

Nutrition Advantages:

  • This salsa is packed with nutrients!
  • Corn is a good source of fiber and vitamins.
  • red bell peppers are loaded with vitamins A and C.
  • The addition of lime juice not only adds a zesty flavor but also boosts your vitamin C intake.
  • Plus, it’s a great way to add flavor without extra calories or fat.

Recipe Alternatives:

  • For a low-carb version, replace corn with diced zucchini.
  • If you’re vegan or allergic to corn, simply omit it and add more bell peppers or tomatoes.
  • To reduce the heat, remove the seeds from the chipotle peppers or use just one pepper.

Tips for Elevating the Recipe:

  • Roast the bell peppers along with the corn for an extra smoky flavor.
  • Add some diced avocado or mango for a creamy or sweet twist.
  • Use grilled pineapple for a smoky-sweet flavor profile.
  • For an extra kick, sprinkle some crumbled cotija cheese or feta on top before serving.

Feel free to play around with the ingredients to suit your taste or dietary needs. This salsa is all about bold flavors and fresh ingredients, so don’t be afraid to get creative. Enjoy your delicious Chipotle Roasted Chili Corn Salsa, and let the fiesta begin!
