Chili Lime Street Corn Salsa

Chili Lime Street Corn Salsa is a cross between a copy cat Chipotle Corn Salsa recipe and the flavors you'd get in Mexican street corn. Use up that summer corn and make a salsa you'll want to put on everything.

  • 24 ounces Sweet Corn Frozen or cut off the cob
  • 1/2 cup Red Bell Pepper Finely Chopped
  • 1/4 cup Red Onion Finely Chopped
  • 1/4 cup Jalapeno Ribs and seeds removed
  • 1/4 cup Cilantro chopped
  • 1/4 cup Cotija or Queso Fresco Cheese optional-leave out if Vegan
  • Juice of 1 Lime
  • 2 tsp Trader Joe's Chili Lime Seasoning If you don't have this seasoning use 2 tsp. Chili Powder and zest of 1 lime.
  • salt to taste


  1. If you corn is frozen- cook according to package directions. I like to use the steamable bags of corn for this.  If it's not frozen, just cut it fresh off the cob.

  2. Heat a cast iron skillet over medium high heat. Drizzle a little avocado oil into the pan.  Allow it to get super hot. Add the corn and char the outside.

  3. Stir in the red pepper and just allow it slightly soften.

  4. Once the corn is charred, remove it from the heat and place on a sheet pan.  Transfer the sheet pan to the freezer so the corn can cool.  Chop up your onion, cilantro and jalapeno.

  5. When the corn and pepper mixture is cooled off, toss it together with the onion, cilantro, jalapeno, lime juice, chili lime seasoning and salt. Taste for seasoning and add more salt, jalapeno or chili lime seasoning to your desired tastes.

  6. This is purely optional, but just before serving, you can add the Cotija or Queso Fresco cheese. This will give it that same street corn flavor.
