Slow Cooker Sweet & Spicy Southwestern Salsa

Slow Cooker Salsa

Do you prefer to eat fresh salsa or cooked salsa? Vegetable and herb gardens make the best fresh salsa, and you can get as creative with it as you want. Make it hot or mild, bold and spicy, or sweet and spicy.

Don’t have a garden of your own? Vegetables and herbs from the produce section at the supermarket you frequent or from your local farmer’s market will work just fine.

When you favor a particular salsa recipe, cook it and store it in a jar. Make it last longer by cooking the ingredients and storing in a jar or plastic container in the freezer.

  1. Stewing tomatoes in a crock pot is a brilliant idea. I will definitely try that next time I
    find myself cooking tons of tomatoes for canning in the hottest part of the summer.

  2. These beans look delicious. My friend makes charro beans with bacon, hot dogs, and ham in them. She is originally from South America.
