Variations Ideas

  • Spice Level – Feel free to adjust the spice level in this salsa recipe. You can add in seeds for the jalapeno or add in about a ¼ teaspoon of red pepper flakes.
  • Corn – We made this recipe with canned corn but you can also use fresh ears of corn. I like to use leftover grilled sweet corn on the cob for added flavor. Fresh corn kernels makes this copycat Chipotle Corn salsa recipe so flavorful.
  • Substitute – Feel free to substitute the fresh lime juice with lemon juice or other citrus flavors.
  • Additions – This salsa can be made with your favorite additions. Add in diced tomatoes, poblano peppers, black beans and bell pepper.

Step by Step Instructions

Big bowl of bowl with two small bowls of chopped red onion and bell pepper

Step 1 – First, you will need to chop all of your ingredients.

  • Step 3 – Finally, just serve and enjoy.

Recipe Tips

  • Prepare Veggies – You are going to do a lot of chopping so I highly recommend you get this stainless steel chopper. I have one and I love it. It is a life saver when you have a ton of chopping to do. I use mine almost every single day.
  • Lime Juice – I also have a lime juicer and it is nice because it catches the seeds and gets every last bit of juice. Just another little gadget that helps make life easier.
  • Refrigerate – After combining ingredients, make sure to allow the copycat recipe to marinate together for the best flavor.
