Commonly Asked Questions

How can I have the best salsa experience?

You’d think that eating salsa alone will let you have the full flavor explosion experience. That is quite true, however, there is another way you can fully enjoy salsa. After cooking, let your salsa sit for a couple of minutes. Let its juice fully coat — or marinate — the rest of your ingredients. This will help in consolidating all the flavors of the salsa.

What if I want a thicker salsa?

If you want to have a thicker feel to your salsa, simply add a tablespoon of cornstarch while cooking.

When is the best time to buy corn?

Usually, corn takes more than a couple of weeks to harvest. Farmers know that their corn is ready to be picked 20 days after its first ‘silk’ has emerged. The months of May and June (depending on the type of corn) will be the best time for you to go to the market and grab some.



This corn salsa recipe is great for tacos and is good even on its own! We guarantee that you will love its earthy and sweet flavor. After having a taste of this fresh appetizer, you will never want to have anything else.
