Heart Healthy - Homemade Salsa

I'm joining Robin at Big Red Kitchen for National Wear Red Day Event... So, here's my Heart Healthy Recipe. I'll save this space for my recipe but check Life's Little Blessings for my (coming soon) post on the Heart!

4 large tomatoes, seeds removed, diced
1 tsp. lemon juice
1 green pepper, diced
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
4.5 oz. can green chilis, chopped
1/4 tsp. salt
1 medium onion, diced
1/8 tsp. black pepper
3 cloves garlic, diced
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

Combine tomatoes, green pepper, chilies, onion, garlic, lemon juice, cayenne, salt, and pepper. Heat thoroughly on medium-high temperature for approximately 10 minutes. Let cool and add the cilantro. Refrigerate 1-2 hours before serving.
