Recipe for Jalapeno Tequila Cranberry Sauce. Tart cranberries and sweet orange pair beautifully with a little bit of jalapeno heat in this unique southwestern cranberry sauce recipe.


  • 12 ounces fresh cranberries
  • zest of 1 orange, finely grated
  • juice of 2 oranges
  • 2 tablespoons tequila
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1-2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and finely minced


  1. Add enough water to the orange juice to make one cup of liquid.
  2. Makes about 1 1/2 Cups Combine cranberries, orange zest, juice and water, tequila, and sugar in a large pot. Bring to a slow boil, stirring occasionally. When the cranberries begin to pop, add the chopped jalapeños and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently. If the sauce seems a little thick, add a bit more water. Remove from heat, transfer to a bowl and chill.
