Roasted Poblano and Corn Salsa - The Baker and The Chef
 
Picture
So our 15 year old had a craving for, of all places, Chipotle.  Baffled by this, I asked him, "why Chipotle"?  He said, "their corn salsa is sooooo good".  Now, I don't necessarily think Chipotle is bad, but a $10 burrito?  Surely, I thought, I could do it better.  And so a challenge arose to see if I could produce a corn salsa better than Chipotle's.  It's the middle of October here in Chicago, and unfortunately there is no fresh sweet corn to be had.  If there was, I would have used that instead of canned corn and thrown it on the grill to impart a smokey-ness for this recipe.  This is such a versitle recipe.  Use it on fish, grilled meats, chicken, pork, even burgers.  We used it not only for our burritos, but for the "Little Fatties" that The Baker made for dinner.
