I made this salsa in the crock pot with all of my late season garden tomatoes. It was so delicious. The slow cook method is the way to go. Thanks for a great recipe

Haven't made many salsas over the years, & here in one day, I've made two! This salsa went well with the chips I had, including the radish & yam chips! Didn't blend until smooth, 'cause I thought it would go well just a little chunky (& it did)! [Made & reviewed for one of the chefs I adopted in this Spring's PAC]
