4 ears Sweet corn, fire-roasted
3 Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced to 1/4″
3 Jalepenos, fire-roasted, seeded, and diced to 1/4″
2 medium Avocados (just shy of ripe), diced to 1/4″
1 can (15 oz) Black beans, rinsed and drained
1 Red bell pepper, fire-roasted, seeded, and diced to 1/4″
1 medium Red onion, diced to 1/4″
1/3 cup Cilantro, chopped fine
2 Limes, juiced
2 Tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
3 Tbsp Apple cider vinegar
2 tsp Kosher salt
2 tsp Ground chipotle
2 tsp Ground cumin
1 tsp Granulated garlic

In a large mixing bowl, cut the corn off of the cob.

Tip: The corn tends to come off in sheets, so I use a pastry cutter to help break up the kernels. Just be careful not to mash the corn.

Add the remaining ingredients (avocados last) and mix well.

Refrigerate for at least two hours.

  1. YUM! This looks fantastic. I make a very similar salasa (minus the vinegar, chipotle, and cumin). I’ve never thought to roast the corn. I’ll definitely have to try that. I also add pineapple. Thanks for the idea!
