Fire Roasted Corn and Habanero Salsa

Fire roasted corn brings a subtle smoky grilled flavor to this salsa. Accented by the magnificently spicy habanero pepper, you've got a delicious salsa with pure bang. Chili heads will love this combination for the flavor but also for the wonderful kick.


  • 1 to 2 habanero peppers, minced
  • 2 ears fresh sweet corn, stalks removed
  • 4 Italian plum tomatoes, peeled, seeded and diced
  • 1 medium red onion, chopped
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro, rinsed and chopped
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Cooking Directions

  • Heat grill to medium heat.
  • Coat sweet corn with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  • Wrap in tinfoil. Set over grill and cook about 20-25 minutes, or until corn turn golden. Leave on longer if you'd like some of the kernels to begin to blacken. Remove and cool.
  • Slice the kernels off of the corn cob and add to a mixing bowl.
  • To the bowl, add remaining ingredients. Toss to combine.
  • Serve warm!

NOTES: Use extra habanero peppers for additional heat. Two peppers will bring in plenty, but add more to really bring it up a notch. Also, if you allow the corn to blacken a bit, you'll not only introduce the additional grilled flavor, but color as well, making for an attractive variation of this salsa.
