This variation of cranberry sauce adds a little spice of jalapeno.
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup water
1 (16 oz) bag frozen cranberries
2 jalapeños, chopped
1 lime, zested
Combine half the sugar and water in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Add the jalapeños and let simmer, then add remaining sugar. Add the cranberries and return to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes.
Use a potato masher to break down cranberries. Remove the pan from heat, add lime zest and let the sauce cool.
