3 cups (12-oz. package) fresh or thawed frozen cranberries
1 fresh jalapeño chili, stemmed, seeded, and chopped
3/4 cup chopped onion
2 tablespoons chopped fresh ginger
1/2 cup fresh cilantro
5 tablespoons lime juice
2 teaspoons grated orange peel
1/4 cup tequila (optional)
3 tablespoons orange-flavor liqueur or 1 more tablespoon grated orange peel
How to Make It
Sort cranberries and discard any soft or decayed fruit. Rinse berries.
In a food processor, whirl cranberries, chili, onion, ginger, cilantro, lime juice, orange peel, tequila, and orange-flavor liqueur until finely chopped. Or grind through a food chopper with a fine blade. Add salt to taste.
this is a wonderful change to the overly sweet cranberry sauce normally served with turkey during the holidays. To cut the heat a bit I occasionally use green chilies instead of the jalapeno. the grandkids like it better without the hot pepper. Definately worth making if you prefer salsa to sauce.
