You can also review the chef log to determine whether a recipe has been enabled using the less command: less /var/log/chef.log and searching for a specific recipe. For example, while viewing the chef log, you can enter the following to check whether the redis recipe has been enabled: /redis.
The word redis in the log will be highlighted.
