Homemade Slow Cooker Salsa

Salsa is a very popular dip. The freshness of the dip makes it popular and the possible heat in it makes it exciting. But salsa tastes even better when you make it yourself. Homemade salsa is very easy to make and there are multiple ways to make it. You could just prepare the ingredients, mix them together, and call it a day. But you could get even more into the idea of making your own salsa and actually cooking it. Cooked salsa definitely has more flavor though there is less freshness to the overall dish. Still, the best way to make salsa at home is to use a homemade slow cooker salsa recipe. 

Homemade slow cooker salsa is so easy to make at home and is a great party dish.  You can also use it as a delicious taco topping.

Salsa is simply a mix of fresh vegetables and herbs that provide bursts of flavor in every bite. The juicy tomatoes create the base of the dip and then the herbs, spices, and other vegetables just intensify the flavor.

There is an argument to be made about the idea of cooking salsa as opposed to just mixing it together cold.

Cooking the salsa really brings out the flavors of the ingredients and helps them meld together in a great way.

The brightness of the salsa will disappear and it will become a darker, richer salsa. But the flavor of a homemade slow cooker salsa will be so worth the loss of a bright appearance.

Salsa is all about the tomatoes. Tomatoes act as the base, give it the color, and of course, add that acidity we all love. In fact, there are a couple of different tomatoes we will be using.

You will need a can of diced fire-roasted tomatoes with green chilis. But you will also need large, organic heirloom tomatoes that you can chop yourself.

The jalapenos are also important. Jalapenos will add a bit of flavor and heat but here is a tip. You will want to remove the seeds if you want a medium salsa.

The more jalapeno seeds in the salsa, the hotter it will be. Of course, there will also be a little chili powder so that will add heat as well. Balance it out until you know you have an acceptable heat.
