  1. Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in the garlic, tomatoes, bell pepper, and jalapeno pepper. Season with paprika, black pepper, and sea salt. Cook, stirring occasionally for 20 minutes until the vegetables are tender. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook until the liquid evaporates and the salad thickens, about 2 hours more. Stir in the lemon juice, and refrigerate overnight before serving.
