Chipotle Lime Cranberry Sauce

Lisa Bonny


  • 1 bag 12 oz fresh cranberries
  • 1/2 c. orange juice
  • 1/2 c. + 2 tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp. fresh lime juice or 1 tsp. True Lime
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp. ground chipotle pepper


  • Rinse cranberries. Pick through and throw away any bad cranberries.
  • In a pot over medium heat, combine cranberries, orange juice, sugar and lime juice. Stir well.
  • Sprinkle cinnamon and chipotle pepper over top. Start with 1/4 tsp chipotle - you can always add a bit more if you decide to up the spice level. Mix well.
  • Bring to a boil over medium, stirring often.
  • Reduce heat to medium low. Cover and continue to cook 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • When sauce is thick, remove from heat. Serve immediately or store in refrigerator until ready to serve.
