Made these for our holiday event at work. I cut the cayenne back a bit because I wasn't sure everyone would like heat. They dove into the crock pot and they were gone in no time. Something to be said for an empty dish!

I made these today for DH and his hunting buddies and they all loved it!!! Just the right amount of heat. Made for the Billboard Recipe Tag Game.

Very easy, tasty recipe. A do again. I used whole frozen cranberries (I had them on hand) added 1 tablespoon Splenda brown sugar - wonderful slightly tart flavor. Thanks Brooke for a lovely dinner   Second time I used cranberry sauce that I made from Kitten's recipe -  Both times we loved the end result Thanks again. And yet a third time that's how much We love this recipe.
