Helpful Tips for Making Roasted Chili Corn Salsa
Allowing the corn to roast in the oven is going to bring out a ton of flavor of the salsa. You can also roast the corn on the grill if you would like to do that, then cut it off the cob.
Single Layer Of Vegetables
When roasting the vegetables make sure they are in a single layer. That way you get an even roasting on the vegetables. Otherwise you will find that the veggies will vary a bit.
Variations For Roasted Chili Corn Salsa
Instead of green chilies you can easily swap to poblano peppers instead. You will want to roast the pepper the same and then dice it up into bite size pieces. Feel free to remove the seeds of the pepper.
Leaving the seeds in the jalapeno is going to ramp up the heat. Now, you can remove the seeds and then have a more mild corn salsa.
Feel free to add in some lemon juice as well as the lime. It will add another layer of flavor to the salsa.
