Slow Cooker Salsa-easy, minimal ingredients, and tasty!
My go-to lunch is chips and salsa with greens. When I don’t seem to have any other quick lunch in the house, I seem to always have chips and salsa! I have made raw tomato salsa and cucumber peach salsa in the past, but through the year when tomatoes aren’t in season, I buy Costco’s Organic Salsa. I love their cooked salsa!
This summer we weren’t only blessed with our own tomatoes (yay!), but we were able to buy some tomatoes at an excellent price, and I also got some from a friend. Besides making the the raw tomato salsa and my first marinara, I started making my own Slow Cooker Salsa.
I ended up coming into some more tomatoes and was able to make a few more batches of salsa, I was so happy! I figure making it saves a lot of money when tomatoes are in season. If it isn’t tomato-time, it’s typically much more frugal to buy the salsa.
This recipe is really flexible. Once I added a cup of shredded zucchini since I had some, and I needed to add more spice since the zucchini seemed to absorb the spice. I’ve also added bell pepper, too. Don’t be afraid to experiment! One time I skipped draining the salsa because I started the salsa batch late. I ended up cooking it overnight with the lid off, and it was just fine. Gotta love the crock-pot!
I have not made this salsa with canned tomatoes, but I imagine it would work.
Have you ever made a raw cucumber peach salsa?
or a raw garden fresh salsa?
