If you like Pico De Gallo, I think you will love this Corn Red Pepper Salsa. The sweetness of the corn and honey totally balances out the spiciness of the meat in tacos and burritos. As a salsa with chips, it is addictive! I had to make a second batch because I kept eating while taking pictures. Oops!

Tips and Hints for making the best Easy Corn Red Pepper Salsa Recipe:

  • For extra heat, increase the Jalapeno from 1 pepper to 1 1/2 peppers or to your taste.
  • Lime juice is an essential ingredient of this recipe. Use fresh squeezed lime juice for the best flavor and results.
  • You can also taste and adjust the honey in this recipe, I like my Corn Red Pepper Salsa on the sweeter side, but you can use less.
  • For extra flavor, add a pinch of cumin!
  • I always say this, but the best results start with quality ingredients, so use the best you can afford.
