Slow-Cooker Santa Fe Country Ribs

  • Author: Cullys Kitchen


  • 2 pounds boneless country-style pork ribs ( I used bone-in because that is what I had on hand)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup thick and chunky salsa
  • ¾ cup chili sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • rice (optional)


  1. Lightly spray slow cooker with cooking spray. Mix all ingredients together in the slow cooker except for the ribs.
  2. Work ribs into the salsa mixture in the slow cooker, cover, and cook for 8 – 9 hours on low or 4 – 5 hours on high or until ribs are tender. Remove ribs from slow cooker, spoon off any excess fat, and serve sauce over the ribs and rice.
