Corn Salsa?!? I know, I know. It’s a summer salad. Eh. I couldn’t wait that long to have my corn. Sorry. And it will make its appearance again on Super Bowl Sunday.

Besides, did you know that frozen corn is harvested¬†at its peak and flash frozen to preserve its awesomeness? Yep, it’s true. The Internet(s) told me so. ūüėČ

But, no, really, it is true. You can go to WebMD and read this little piece on frozen veggies.

How about these Baked Wonton Chips! I’m a little late to the wonton party, but better late than never, right?

My husband saw the wonton wrappers in my grocery bag and he thought I was going to use them for egg rolls. Imagine his surprise when he saw chips. He was disappointed at first – the man wanted an egg roll – but after downing a few handfuls of the chips, he was more than pleased with my decision.

Baked Wonton Chips with Corn Salsa | www.diethood.com | #chips #recipe #wontonchips #cornsalsa @diethoodI have made these chips only once before, and I made them with cinnamon sugar. (YUM!)  This time around I wanted to play a little and see if they would be just as delicious with salt and pepper. Lo and behold, they were amazing! I could not stop eating. Half of the batch was gone before I realized that I needed to take a photo and share the recipe with you.

You can sprinkle whatever topping you want on these goodies. As I said, the cinnamon sugar was fabulous, but I went with a savory version because I wanted to use them for this corn salsa. I think it is a great pairing, and I can’t wait to enjoy this deliciousness again this upcoming weekend.

    Ugh! I have a shared weakness for salty, crispy, crunchy snacks. And, I agree with you about frozen whole kernel corn. It certainly has its place (like in my recent recipe for Buffalo Chicken Chowder with Bacon & Cheese Tortellini). Too funny about hubbies…when they are expecting a certain dish when you buy ingredients, LOL! Thanks for this great recipe, Kate! xo

    I agree with WebMD! Last year was our first summer with both kids in braces (no corn on the cob for them) so I put up more than my usual amount of corn (cooked kernels cut from the cob, frozen on a try and then bagged up). I’ve been tapping into my stash lately, and this looks like it will make an appearance on our table.

    I’m tempted to do a grain free twist and serve this corn salsa in an avocado cup–in my quest to add more avocado to my life in 2013 I picked up a bag at Costco and noticed that they are small enough for individual avocado boats.

    Thanks!
