1.    Place onion, pepper(s), & cilantro in bowl of food processor.  Pulse until coarsely chopped & combined.
2.    Add tomatoes & lemon juice, pulse until slightly “soupy” or until your desired consistency.
3.    Add lemon juice & salt, taste and adjust as needed.
4.    Pour salsa into serving bowl or storage container & allow to sit for 1 – 4 hours at room temperature.  Alternately you can store in the refrigerator for 24 hours, will keep under refrigeration for up to 5 days.
5.    Serve with chips, or as a sauce for beef or chicken.

*  Alternately you can use canned tomatoes.  I prefer the Cento San Marzano available at most grocers.
