Chipotle Corn Salsa

"Corn Salsa with smoky chipotle and lime is an easy homemade dip with tortilla chips, a deliciously summery veggie side dish, or a flavor-packed topper for chicken or fish! You just have to try these Homemade Baked Tortilla Chips with it!"

A Note from Feedfeed

Shuck the corn fresh from the cob for this salsa. You'll get the season's peak sweetness, which pairs perfectly with the heat from chipotle powder, bitey red onions, brightness from the lime juice, and chives. This salsa is perfect for tortilla chips or served alongside chicken, meat, or seafood.
