Roasted Corn Relish

Roasted Corn Relish

We like to make fajitas a lot at our house, especially in the summer time when we can take the steak or chicken out to the grill. It is one of those meals every one can enjoy.  It is so simple to throw a couple of extras out on the grill to make this Roasted Corn Relish.  It takes just a few minutes but makes such a difference.  We like to eat it either on the fajitas or on the side with some chips as a dip.  Either way it is delicious.  Of course this Roasted Corn Relish can be made with anything or served as an appetizer or just an afternoon snack, any way you choose.

Roasted Corn Salsa

Roasted Corn Relish


4 ears of corn, husked
10 green onions
3/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
zest of 1 lime
juice from same lime
1/2 – 1 teaspoon chipotle chili powder


Brush the corn and green onions with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill over medium-high heat until slightly charred, turning occasionally, about 2 minutes for onions and 7 minutes for corn. Once corn is cool to the touch, cut kernels into a bowl. Coarsely chop the green onions and add them to the corn. Stir in the cilantro, lime zest and juice, chipotle powder and salt and pepper. Serve over fajitas, tacos or with chips.

  1. This looks divine. We do something different with our fajitas these days. Instead of eating in a wrap we cut the tops off of red bell peppers, brush inside & out with olive oil and toss chopped garlic inside then grill. Once done we stuff them chopped grilled chicken/beef/vegetables. This corn relish sounds like a great addition.

  2. The pepper idea is brilliant! How yummy and no carb!! Thanks for sharing!
