Charred Corn Salsa

Hi all– Here’s a recipe that goes along with yesterdays “Smoky Carnitas” post.  Rounds out the taste for tacos, burritos…   It’s fast and flavorful.

2 cups corn (fresh or frozen, defrosted)
3 tab. olive oil
1 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced
1/4 cup red onion, chopped
1 lime, juiced
1 tsp. cumin
salt and pepper to taste
2 tab. cilantro, chopped

In a hot pan pour in the oil and corn.  Stir it up on high heat until the corn starts to char around the edges.  Remove from the heat to cool.  Then mix together the tomatoes, red onion, lime juice, cumin cilantro and salt & pepper.  Add in the cooled corn and refrigerate until you’re ready to serve it up.

P.S.  If you want to dial up the heat, add in some minced jalapeños or chipotle peppers.
