Spicy Cranberry Cream Cheese Dip

This was the appetizer I was most excited about making for our annual holiday cocktail party. I saw this recipe a few years ago on Pinterest and finally made it. It was delicious! Even Dan said he was hesitant at first, but loved the cranberry flavor mixed with the jalapeno spiciness!

I only have one terrible picture because I was in a hurry before our guests arrived. But you can find more and the original recipe here.

Spicy Cranberry Cream Cheese Dip
1 (12 oz) package of fresh cranberries
1/4 c green onion chopped
1/4 cilantro chopped
1 small jalapeno (remove seeds to make it less hot)
1 1/4 c sugar
1/4 tsp cumin
2 Tbsp lemon juice
pinch of salt
2 (8oz) packages cream cheese

-Use food processor or hand chop the cranberries.
-Hand chop the green onion, cilantro, and jalapeno.
-Add all ingredients (minus the cream cheese) in a bowl. Refrigerate for a few hours or even overnight.
-When ready to serve, spread cream cheese onto a plate and smooth cranberry mix over top. Serve immediately with crackers or chips!
