Chipotle Corn Salsa

IMG_1642
In honor of Cinco de Mayo, my first recipe of May will be a copycat Chipotle Corn Salsa! One of the reasons that Chipotle has earned my business is the fresh taste of their corn salsa, especially paired with some barbacoa- yum, yum, yum! I’m getting hungry just thinking about the combination!. This side dish is the perfect appetizer for a party- especially when paired with guacamole and a pico de gallo salsa- or great for an average Taco Tuesday. I find myself craving vegetables with a heavy Mexican meal, so this is a great way to soothe those cravings and still add a little heat to your tacos!

3/4 cup fresh cilantro, torn or chopped
the juice of 2 limes
1/2 teaspoon salt
