What is Salsa?
Salsa is a Mexican flavor tomato-based sauce filled with fresh cilantro, onion, garlic, lime, and jalapenos used either for Tacos and Taco dishes. It is also popular as a dip with Tortilla Chips.
Tortilla Chips and Salsa is the most appetizer in any of the Mexican restaurants around the world.
Salsa is also a sauce used in various Mexican dishes such as Tamales, Chilaquiles, or Enchiladas.
Carbs in Salsa
As I have already mentioned, store-bought salsa, sugar-free or not might contain added sugar or sugar sweeteners plus preservatives. It is very important to read all of the labels once you are ready to purchase one in your grocery store.
Our Homemade Salsa contains only 3 grams of carbs per serving.
Tomatoes already have natural sugar in them and there is no reason to add more sugar.
One tip – sometimes canned and peeled tomatoes contain much fewer carbs than fresh ones. But it all depends on the brand of the canned tomatoes.
Store-bought Salsa, whether normal or sugar-free, has most of the time added sugar for extra flavors. It is seldom that you can find salsa in the shop with only natural ingredients that fully suit the Keto lifestyle.
Homemade Sugar-Free Salsa
That is the reason we always make salsa at home. And especially, since it only takes 5 minutes prep time, there is no reason to buy one anymore.
Our Homemade Keto Salsa is made with fresh and natural ingredients and lasts in the fridge for up to a week.
And additionally, to that, you can choose to have your salsa chunky like Tomato Pico de Gallo, or smooth. How easy is that?
Keto Chips and Salsa
With our wide variety of Low Carb Chips, this Mexican Dip is just the perfect accompaniment for Brunch, Keto Party, or a simple Movie night.

Can Keto Salsa be canned?
Some might wonder if you can preserve Salsa even if it does not contain added sugar or preservatives.
The answer is an absolute yes. And you can use my easiest canning method described below.
Canning Keto Salsa
Canning your Salsa is a perfect way of storing it for much longer. Preserving Salsa saves you space in your freezer or fridge and that is the main reason, I use this method most of the time.
Salsa either normal, Sugar-Free, or Keto Can be preserved by canning it as well.
How To Preserve Keto Salsa?
There are 3 main methods of canning and preserving starting from the boiling water method, steam canning method, or pressure canner method.
But my easiest tip for canning is to fill your Mason Jars with the ready-made sauce, close the lids, and place them into the dishwasher for one cycle at a high temperature.
This easy preserving method is something I have learned from my mum and is the only way I am canning everything.
