1 (16 oz) can whole-berry cranberry sauce
1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes with mild green chiles
2 tsp dried minced onion
4 tsp sugar
1 T lemon or lime juice
1/2 tsp mild chili spice mix
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Optional: 1 scallion (green onion), finely minced
Place the cranberry sauce in a medium-sized serving bowl. Drain the canned tomatoes, and add them to the bowl. Microwave the cranberry-tomato mix on High for one minute.
Mash cranberry sauce lightly, and stir with a spoon to break up and smooth out. Add the spices (minced onion to cinnamon). Stir to make a chunky blend.
Refrigerate, covered, until ready to serve. Makes about 12 servings.
