How to Serve
This Sweet and Spicy Cranberry Jalapeno Salsa makes for a great appetizer and pairs perfectly with tortilla chips and cocktails just as much as it’s perfection over mashed potatoes and turkey at Thanksgiving. My vote is to top the mashed potatoes with this Cranberry Jalapeño Salsa, it’s so good.

The recipe calls for pure cane sugar to combat the tart cranberry flavor. Mixed with the spice of a jalapeno pepper it’s a flavorful combination. We’ve made this recipe three years in a row now at Thanksgiving thanks to one of Joey’s co-residents from Friendsgiving.
