Chipotle Just Dropped the Recipe for Their Popular Corn Salsa on TikTok
With favorite foods (slightly) harder to come by and everyone officially bored out of their minds, these pandemic times have been a boon for food content on TikTok. The social media app with potentially exploitable security flaws is chock-full of all sorts of life-changing kitchen hacks and ingenious at-home recipes. And at this point, even Chipotle is using the platform to reveal some of its secrets.
After TiKTok user @Abigaliand_ recently commented asking Chipotle to drop their corn salsa recipe, the chain of Mexican grills obliged via a TikTok showing exactly how this sweet yet spicy delicacy is prepared.
Check out the TikTok post here.
Unless Chipotle is hiding some secret ingredient that didn’t get mentioned in the video, making this colorful corn salsa at home couldn’t be simpler if you have access to a good knife and the right produce. The base ingredients are kernels of corn, chopped onion, diced jalapeno, and chopped cilantro. Once those veggies and herbs are all sliced and diced, the next step is to sprinkle some salt over the corn. From there, combine the onion, jalapeno, and cilantro together before dousing the mixture with lime juice. Finally, just mix all that up with the salty corn and you are officially good to go.
This isn’t the first time Chipotle has shared a recipe of theirs over TikTok. Recently, they shared their guac recipe, though it was technically just a repost of the info they shared on Twitter. Either way, it goes to show that they aren’t afraid to reveal some of their trade secrets to eager fans who might want to mix it up in the kitchen.
So if you want to replicate the experience of Chipotle without paying for delivery or venturing out into public, this summery corn salsa recipe is exactly what you need right now. If any friends or family you serve this to ask for some guac, maybe don’t charge them extra.
