There’s plenty of time to squeeze in just one more recipe for Cinco de Mayo—especially since it’s so quick and easy to make!

I’m a big fan of the corn salsa they make at Chipotle’s.  No matter what I order, it’s going to include some of the delicious stuff.  It’s incredibly easy to make with just a little chopping and squeezing involved.  Like typical salsas, the list of ingredients includes onion, lime, and cilantro.  Honestly, you could swap out the corn for tomatoes and you’d have a fresh and fabulous tomato salsa for your eating and snacking pleasure.

Whenever I gear up for Mexican food for a crowd, I always double up on the salsas—both tomato and corn and not forgetting guacamole!  They all do double duty as both appetizers and accompaniments to whatever it is on the menu for the entrée.  Now, that’s my kind of recipe!
