Who doesn’t love the Chipotle Restaurant Chain in the US? This was the first place I tasted Mexican food and totally loved it. I found it to be an easy one to relish and enjoy. I am sure a lot of Indian will agree with me? My family loves it too and we usually enjoy tacos, salsa and salads every once in a while. I’ve always assumed that since the ingredients look fresh, it must be easy to put together, but it was a pleasant surprise when I started experimenting with the recipes.
Although quite obvious, the cuisine makes use of ingredients in a versatile way, adding many of the native spices but incorporating newer ones. I have had one of the best corn salsa at Chipotle, a Mexican food chain in the US.
After coming back to India, I tried to replicate the recipe and came pretty close. Mexican cuisine makes plenty of use of corn in their salsas and salads. Since much of their cuisine is earthy, uncooked and fresh, this vegetable makes for a great option.
