  • 3 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1 orange bell pepper (seeds and ribs removed)
  • 4 La Morena pickled jalapeños (add more if you like it really spicy!)
  • 1/2 cup lime juice
  • 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup honey or granulated sugar
  • pinch of salt


  • First, cut red onion and bell pepper into large wedges to make it easy to process them.
  • Then, in a small bowl, combine lime juice, salt, and honey or granulated sugar. The amount of sweetener will depend on how sweet you want your salsa. Remember, start small and you can always add more sugar! Stir to combine and set aside.
  • In a food processor, add fresh cranberries, red onion, bell pepper and pickled jalapeños. Pulse until combined and roughly chopped. Remove contents to a medium sized bowl.
  • Stir in lime juice and sweetener mixture to the salsa. Adjust sugar for desired sweetness level.
  • Cover and set in the refrigerator for at least one hour to let the flavors develop and meld together.
  • Serve with tortilla chips.
