  • 1 15 oz can whole kernel corn drained
  • 1 4 oz can mild green chilies
  • 1 roma tomato chopped
  • ½ cup red onions chopped
  • ½ cup ranch dressing
  • 2 Tbsp Sour Cream
  • 2 Tbsp cilantro chopped

  • 1 Tbsp fresh lime juice ½ of a medium-sized lime
  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • This simple salsa comes alive when you use the freshest ingredients. Be sure to use fresh lime juice, not the bottled stuff and fresh cilantro and a ripe tomato.

  • Let the salsa sit for at least one hour before serving.
  • Serve with tortilla chips as a dip or serve alone as a side.
