Texan Tomato Relish

This is excellent on burgers or anything you would use ketchup on. It is even good stirred into veggies.

Texan Tomato Relish (Level 1)

1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup finely chopped vidalia onion
1 cup diced canned tomatoes
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons brown sugar substitute (I use Whey Low Gold)
1 pickled jalapeno, finely chopped

Heat olive oil in a medium saute pan over medium heat. Add onions and cook until they soften and turn light brown. Do not burn,

Add tomatoes, sugar substitute and chopped jalapeno. Bring to a boil, then turn down the heat and simmer for 25 to 35 minutes. The relish will be thick and have a jamlike consistency. Season with salt to taste.

Store in a jar with a lid in the refrigerator.
