There’s nothing much sweeter than fresh corn, fresh off the cob. It’s even better when it’s grilled. But for this application and to make this a quick recipe, frozen corn is almost as sweet and tender. To give the corn and salsa more flavor, I like to sauté the defrosted corn in dry, non-stick skillet to give a little char and give a slightly smokey taste and make the corn a little sweeter.
To add a spicy, chili kick to the salsa, the secret, quick ingredient is a can of diced, mild green chiles. They come already fire roasted and diced, so all the work is done for you and they add so much flavor and fresh taste to the salsa. Topped off with freshly chopped cilantro, this salsa, with it’s homemade fresh flavors tastes like it took hours to make
