I love the corn salsa from Chipotle's. It's a perfect combination of sweet, spicy and tangy. This was a recipe request from Desiree and where the inspiration to make this came from. You can use this as a dip for nachos, as a side dish or in a burrito bowl. I like to make my own burrito bowl with some cilantro lime rice, guacamole, chicken ropa vieja topped with lettuce. You can adjust the heat according to your taste. My girlfriend gobbled this all up with tortilla chips. (Hi Raquel!) She gave it two thumbs up!!
