Give some zing to your traditional cranberry sauce recipe by adding jalapeño and lime. This healthy, homemade cranberry relish pairs beautifully with turkey, but also works just as well as a spread for sandwiches or even as a taco topping.

Made this with 1 jalapeño as a last-minute contribution to a Thanksgiving dinner. Everyone loved it, including one who hates spicy food! I've use more jalapeño since, and it's addictive. Goes well with everything. I've even sneaked a spoonful all by itself.
