Steak Tacos and Just Like Chipotle’s Corn Salsa

Steak Tacos and Corn Salsa (2)

I have to admit it … I’m addicted to Chipotle!  I typically do not like “chain restaurants” (does that make me a food snob?) with the exception of Chipotle.  Their food is fresh, good and addictive.  If you don’t have Chipotle near you or you want to make a good steak taco and corn salsa at home then try this recipe.  The corn salsa tastes almost exactly like Chipotle’s!  ENJOY!
