Why We Love Chipotle

Chipotle has always held a special place in our hearts, especially since they have been vegan-friendly since the beginning. Even as other fast food chains jump on the vegan train, Chipotle remains the go-to place for a satisfying plant-based meal. And let’s not forget their roasted chili corn salsa, which is a personal favorite of mine.

How Is This Recipe Different?

Now, let’s talk about how this copycat recipe differs from Chipotle’s version. I’ve found a way to streamline the recipe by skipping the step of roasting poblano peppers. Surprisingly, we don’t even miss them! While Chipotle’s official recipe includes roasted poblano peppers, my takeaway from their TikTok video is that they don’t use much of it, probably due to cost. So, you can get the same authentic taste by using just 5 simple ingredients.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Frozen corn
  • Jalapenos
  • Red onion
  • Cilantro
  • Lime juice
