Chipotle Mexican Grill makes the biggest and most flavor filled burritos around. They are a company that embraces buying local from farmers that grow organic produce and raise animals in a humane way free from all the hormones that factory farms use. I appreciate that but what keeps me going back is how good their food is. They assemble their burritos in front of you with every topping in sight. Choosing what you put in that burrito is half the fun. While I may not be able to duplicate the Chipotle burrito exactly, I think my version is pretty darn good. I took a day to make all my fillers and toppings, enough to make 16 large burritos. We ate our fill, then wrapped the rest in aluminum foil to freeze.

I discovered corn salsa at Chipotle Mexican Grill. For those who have a Chipotle’s in your neighborhood, you know how good their burritos and tacos are. You build your own burritos or tacos with your choice of meat, beans, rice, and salsa. The corn salsa adds something that I have tried to recreate many times and have finally found the ingredients that I think come as close to Chipotle’s as possible. The secret is in the corn. There’s a hint of sweetness that I’ve found comes from roasted corn. Grilling brings out the sugars in the corn that gives it that special taste. Try this corn salsa on any burrito, taco or enchilada and it will soon become a favorite topper.
