Cranberry Jalapeno Dip

Passed to your plate by Liz Price

A few years ago, purchased a bag of cranberries from the grocery.  Never having used fresh cranberries for anything, they sat in my fridge for at least a week.  With the assistance of google, I found all kinds of cranberry salads and, and jellies.  This recipe stood out as the oddest combination, so it won.  The result was a hit – sweet, spicy and savory all in one.  Plus, it’s pretty too!

Ingredients
  • 12 ounces fresh cranberries
  • 4-5 green onions chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper seeded and finely diced
  • 1 cup sugar more or less to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice from about 1 large lemon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 packages cream cheese 8 oz packages, light or regular, softened
  • crackers for serving
Instructions
  1. Pulse the cranberries in a food processor or blender until coarsely chopped (alternately, you can do this task by hand). Add the green onions, cilantro, jalapeno, sugar, cumin, lemon juice and salt and pulse until the ingredients are well combined and finely chopped. Transfer the mixture to a covered bowl or tupperware and refrigerate for 4 hours (or up to overnight) so the flavors have time to develop and the cranberries lose a bit of their tartness.
  2. When ready to serve, spread the cream cheese in an even layer on a serving plate or 9-inch pie dish. Top with the cranberry-jalapeno mixture, spreading evenly over the top of the cream cheese.
  3. Refrigerate for up to an hour before serving. Serve with crackers or tortilla chips.
