It’s a thick and spicy salsa with a rich tomato flavor. This recipe makes 12 cups and ¼ cup of salsa has only 3.5g net carbs!

I’ve been wanting to make this homemade low carb salsa for a long time. This is actually just a low carb version of my husband’s awesome salsa recipe but I tweaked it to make it low carb and I made it in the slow cooker. He actually said it tasted just like his and I think I might have convinced him to use the slow cooker.
It was so easy to just put all the ingredients in the slow cooker and let it go all day. The result was a rich and flavorful salsa that we canned for winter. Actually it won’t even make it to the end of summer but we’ll make more then. Each ¼ cup of salsa has only 3.5g net carbs!
How To Make Homemade Low Carb
Salsa In The Slow Cooker
- Chop all your vegetables and add to the slow cooker.
- Next pour the crushed tomatoes and tomato paste into the slow cooker.
- Then add in the garlic, vinegar, Swerve brown sweetener and the spices.
- Mix well and cook on high for 6 hours or on low for 8 hours.
- Let cool before canning. This recipe makes 6 pints.
- Scroll to the bottom for the full recipe card you can print and save for later.
Homemade Low Carb Salsa Ingredients
I used most of the same ingredients my husband used except I only used jalapenos (he used banana peppers too) and I used Swerve brown sweetener instead of regular brown sugar. Other than that everything was pretty much the same.
For this homemade salsa the ingredients were: bell peppers, jalapenos, onions, garlic, Swerve brown sweetener, cayenne pepper, salt, cumin, onion powder, vinegar, crushed tomatoes and tomato paste.
Let’s Make This Keto Salsa In The Slow Cooker!
One thing my hubby pointed out to me is that he puts his peppers and onions in the food processor so you don’t have to chop. I didn’t realize that so I did it by hand but will do that next time. So you start by chopping the vegetables and add them to the bottom of a slow cooker crock.
Next add in all the tomato products, vinegar, garlic, brown sugar sweetener and spices. Mix well and set to low for 8-10 hours or on high for 4-6 hours. That’s all there is!
Some Low Carb Chips And Ideas To Eat This Salsa With
My husband asked me why I had cut up vegetables. I like to cut up veggies such as cucumbers, carrots and radishes into coins to mimic chips. That’s what I used to dip into this yummy salsa. However I also had some keto pita chips that I found on Netrition.com

Great Salsa For Canning!
This recipe made 12 cups or 6 pints of salsa. If you are into canning this is a great recipe to use. My husband used to make this recipe a couple times and can his salsa for Christmas gifts or just for us to eat all year long. We really like it so we go through quite a bit.
Another idea for this salsa is to pour it over chicken and cook down in the slow cooker. Check out this low carb salsa chicken and just use this salsa for a deliciously easy dinner.

How did you can the salsa? Just put in in the pint jars or did you actually use a pressure cooker to can. How long to can and at what temp should it get to?
Hi Alicia, my husband is the canner in this family and yes he did seal them. He just does it on the stove with a large canning pot. He sanitizes the jars in boiling water then adds the salsa and secures the lids. Then he puts them back in the canning pot. He said it was standard canning procedures.
I’m sorry I’m not much help. Hopefully that made sense to you.
I will have to try this recipe, I have never made it in the slow cooker before.
hope you like it Sara!
A good fresh homemade salsa always scores! This salsa is perfect. I would use it generously with every Mexican meal

This recipe is a real party saver! We’re all trying to watch our carbs but we do LOVE our munchies and snacks. Salsa is at the top of our list of snacks. I’ve already bought the ingredients and I’m making it today for our Father’s Day gathering.
This recipe was amazing. I never canned salsa before today and it came out awesome. I will be saving this recipe to make again. Thanks for the tips and tricks they really helped.
I love a good homemade salsa. I never thought of making a big batch and canning them, that’s brilliant!
This is such a great idea to make a big batch of it and then enjoy it all year round! The texture looks just perfect, and it will be an ideal addition to so many different meals and dishes!
Making a huge batch of this in the slow cooker is just the perfect plan. With summer parties, this is perfect. So much better than bought….and makes a great food gift too.
This is one of the best salsa recipes I have tried! Its so easy to make and the fact that it can be canned for later is a plus! Sharing this recipe to my salsa loving friends!
