Cooking it in the slow cooker allows all of the fresh veggies to blend together and bring out the flavor. The veggies soften and create the best salsa EVER! I love the this recipe makes a lot of salsa and you are able to can it, or give it to your neighbors.

This salsa is incredible and you are going to agree that it is the best that you have ever made! I like a mild salsa so I suggest adding in an extra jalapeño or leaving in the seeds for more of a kick.

  1. I’m wondering if you removed the skins and seeds from the tomatoes for this recipe. It looks amazing, and I can’t wait to try it!

  2. I just made the salsa and after the four hours it came out kind of runny! (Maybe my tomatoes were juicy)! Do you leave the lid on the crock pot…. or leave it off so it will thicken??

  3. This is in my crock pot as I type this…can’t wait till it’s finished! My kitchen already smells amazing! 🙂

  4. Curious how to can the salsa made this recipe. I am a fairly experienced canner so do you just process as you would with peeled tomatoes? Thanks in advance.

    1. Yes it is the same process.
      Fill hot salsa into hot jars, leaving ½ inch of headspace.
      Remove air bubbles and adjust headspace, if needed.
      Wipe rims of jars with a dampened, clean paper towel.
      Adjust lids.
      Process pint jars in a boiling water bath for 15 minutes.

    2. I can tomatoes and salsa every year a d never use the water bath. Boil your jars, fill hot jars with hot salsa & seal. There’s enough acid in tomatoes to be safe. Listen for the pop of the lids sealing.
