  1. Method 1:
  2. Add all the above ingredients to a food processor and pulse 2 to 3 times or until ingredients are a chunky consistency. Store salsa in a glass container with lid and refrigerate for 8 hours allowing the flavors time to marry.
  3. Method 2:
  4. Add all diced ingredients to a slow-cooker, cover and cook on low 3 hours. Allow salsa to cool at room temperature and store in a glass container with lid...refrigerate until ready to use. This method is more like the commercial version or restaurant style.
