I use cumin seeds instead of powder, I warm them gently til' fragrant and a little bouncy- don't overdo it. I keep all other ingredients cold. If you don't have fresh corn, use frozen. I also add one bell pepper of each color & a clove of fresh garlic. Chill til' ready to eat. Can be in burrito bowls, tacos, on omelets, over broiled salmon, in salad, over chicken or burgers or as a darling duet with fresh tortilla chips and guac, too.
