Roasted Corn & Avocado Salsa


Sweet and crispy roasted corn gives a unique twist to an avocado salsa

Roasted Corn & Avocado Salsa

Happy Friday!  Are you ready for the weekend?  We had a fun day yesterday going to the Colorado Rockies game.  My husband’s work had tickets for employees and their families to go to the game.  They chose 6 people to represent his company and go on the field before the game.  My husband was one of the people chosen, and he got to take our 8 year old with him.  Talk about one happy kid!!

Roasted Corn & Avocado Salsa

A few weeks ago we went to the library and the cookbook Simply Mexican caught my eye.  I picked it up, and I have fallen in love.  I have so many recipes bookmarked.  This Roasted Corn & Avocado Salsa was meant to be a garnish on top of a corn soup, but I thought it sounded so good, I just wanted to eat it with chips, or on tacos.

Roasted Corn & Avocado Salsa

Have you ever tried roasting corn before?  I love roasted vegetables, but never thought of doing it with corn.  It gets crispy, and sweet, and it is down right addicting.  Don’t worry about your corn turning golden brown, that is what you want.  The darker (not black) the better!  Now that fresh corn is in season, this is the perfect recipe to make for taco night, or your weekend barbeque.

    What part of Colorado are you in. We come here for the summer – we stay in Breckenridge. I had a feeling when I read your bio that you must live in the mountains with the biking and hiking.

    I’m glad I stopped by.
