I had to give slow cooker salsa a try, I could live on salsa and chips alone if I had too!
And I love bringing salsa and chips to summer barbecues, everyone seems to go crazy for it. This recipe for slow cooker salsa makes about 2 quarts of salsa! Enough for a big crowd, or you could freeze the leftovers in plastic containers.
Recipes to use this salsa in:
- Slow Cooker Beef Salsa Fajitas
- Slow Cooker Steak Burritos
- Slow Cooker Vegetarian 15 Bean Soup
- Slow Cooker Taco Meatloaf Stuffed Peppers
Recipe adapted from One Particular Kitchen Salsa Roja – seriously best salsa on Pinterest!
Slow Cooker Salsa
- 6-7 fresh Roma tomatoes about 1 pound no need to chop, or core, leave whole
- 30 oz. fire roasted tomatoes (two 15-oz. cans)
- 1 white onion peeled cut into 8 wedges
- 3 jalapeños tops cut off
- 4 whole garlic cloves peeled
Wait to add these items
- 1 bunch cilantro
- 1 lime
- 1 ¼ tsp. salt put in slowly, test it to taste
- 1 bunch green onions sliced (don't blend up, just stir these in)
- Put the Roma tomatoes, fire roasted tomatoes, onion, jalapeños and garlic in the slow cooker.
- Cook on high for 3 hours, the tomatoes will look like they exploded, and the vegetables will be mostly soft.
- In 2 batches (or one if it fits) scoop the items and juices from the slow cooker into your blender, and add the cilantro (tear off the big chunk stems and discard, some stems are ok).
- Pulse until salsa is the consistency you would like.
- Pour into a large serving bowl or whatever container you want to store the salsa in. Add the salt to taste, juice of the lime, and the sliced green onion, stir.
- Chill for at least 3 hours before serving. Serve with tortilla chips
