Daily Inspiration

This cranberry spread is really delicious. I actually used the entire amount of cayenne and it really isn't that spicy hot. The green chilies are a great addition. I absolutely love having this cranberry spread option vs. jalapeno pepper jelly as it isn't nearly as sweet and with this topping, you get that unmistakable, wonderful cranberry taste which I love. Will be making this recipe often.
