Why This Roasted Corn Pico Recipe is So Good
Do you find yourself addicted to the roasted corn pico from Moe’s or the medium corn salsa from Chipotle? Well, this recipe is about to blow your taste buds away. With the perfect balance of Tex-Mex flavors derived from sweet corn, zesty lime juice, sharp red onion, spicy jalapeno, and cilantro, this pico is an absolute flavor bomb.
Tips and Tricks for Making Roasted Corn Pico de Gallo
To ensure the best flavor, roast or grill fresh corn on the cob for this recipe. You can even use an air fryer to achieve that delicious roasted taste in just 8 minutes. However, be careful when handling hot peppers. The oil from the peppers can cause a lot of discomfort, so it’s wise to wear gloves while chopping them. Adjust the spice level of your corn pico by adding or reducing the amount of jalapeno. If you prefer a milder taste, you can substitute the jalapeno with green bell pepper. Serve this sensational salsa with tortilla chips or use it as a topping for tofu tacos, quesadillas, or burrito bowls. Don’t forget to store any leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days to allow the flavors to develop even further.
What to Serve With Roasted Corn Pico
If you can’t resist the roasted corn pico salsa at Moe’s or Chipotle, then you’ll absolutely adore making this easy and fresh salsa to enhance your burrito bowls. Cook up your favorite protein, whether it’s Air Fryer Tofu for Tacos, Sofritas, or Instant Pot Vegetarian Taco Meat, and combine it with plain or Spanish Rice, Seasoned Black Beans, and all your favorite toppings. For an extra burst of flavor, try condiments like Smoky Red Pepper Crema, Vegan Avocado Dressing, and Creamy Cilantro Garlic Sauce. And if you’re looking for a simpler option, basic pico de gallo without corn is equally delicious.
