There were lots of other good things at the potluck though. The star of the show was the Turkey, but there were other dishes to try as well.
Hawaiian Chile, Baklava, Shrimp, Potato Salad, Guacamole, Killer Hot Wings, Tomato and Squash Casserole and Angel Food cake for dessert. Well, I made do with the Baklava, didn't taste the cake, cause, gee it was Baklava and not only Baklava, but homemade Baklava. Need I go on?
I wanted to share the recipe for the Hawaiian Chile, partly cause it was so good, but also because it's one of those dishes that can be served warm or room temperature. A different twist on a chile recipe, which is always a good thing. If you're a pineapple lover, this really is good. And also Debbie was nice enough to send me the recipe. Don'tcha love it when people share recipes? I know I do. You can find the recipe at the end here.
But first the pictures, I'm such a visual person, I like to look at pictures of food anyway, but you probably figured this out already.
Boozy Cranberry Sauce and it was well received. With Thanksgiving coming up you may want to give this recipe a try. It freezes very well by the way. Which is why I brought some, I thought people might like some alongside the turkey.
And last but most definitely not least, the Hawaiian Chile. Sorry for the blurry picture, sometimes I just get so excited at the sight of food I can't restrain myself and I jiggle the camera.

As with anything like this it is always better the "next day" but can be ready to go to a party in 20 minutes time.
