  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 ears corn
  • 1 jalapeno
  • ½ cup red onion diced
  • ½ bunch cilantro diced
  • 1-2 limes juiced (approx 1/4 cup)
  • ½-1 tsp salt to taste
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper


  • Heat oil a large skillet over medium heat. Roast the corn and jalapeno until jalapeno is blacked and corn is cooked (will look bright yellow).
  • Allow the corn and jalapeno to cool to the touch, then using a sharp knife cut the corn from the cob. Remove the blacked skin from the jalapeno (will come off easily with your fingers, or can scrape with a knife). Then slice in half and remove the seeds and membranes if desired to reduce the heat.
  • Add the ingredients to a medium size mixing bowl. Stir to combine.
  • Adjust the amount of lime juice and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Cover and refrigerate. Allow to chill for at least 30 minutes before serving.
