Add to bowl. Peel onion and cut in eighths. Add to food processor bowl. Remove stems from jalapeño; cut in halves. Scoop out and discard core and most of seeds (the more seeds you leave in, the hotter the sauce). Chop cleaned jalapeño and add to bowl (wash your hands right after handling the pepper.) Add salt. Process contents of food processor with a couple of quick pulses, then at high for no more than a minute, until mixture is minced but not liquified. Transfer mixture to pan; add oil. cook over medium heat 6 to 8 minutes until bubbling and foaming pink. Remove salsa from heat,; let cool at least 10 minutes (an hour is better).
