Cranberry Jalapeno Dip


  • 12 oz package fresh cranberries
  • 1 ¼ cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • ¼ tsp cumin
  • Dash salt
  • ¼ cup cilantro
  • ¼ cup green onion
  • 1 small jalapeno, seeded (make sure to wear gloves!)
  • 2- 8 oz packages cream cheese


  1. Add the cranberries, sugar, lemon juice, dash of salt, and cumin to a food processor. Process until barely chunky.

  2. Pour the cranberry mixture into a separate bowl and place the cilantro, jalapeno, and green onion into the food processor.

  3. Pulse until the mixture is evenly chopped up but still slightly chunky.

  4. Stir the cilantro mixture into the cranberry mixture.

  5. Place in the fridge for a minimum of 4 hours or overnight. This helps the flavors meld, therefore allowing for the sugar to cut the bitterness of the cranberries.

  6. Right before serving, spread the blocks of cream cheese over a platter (you can also whip them before doing this to add some fluffiness!) and top with the cranberry mixture.

  7. Serve with your favorite crackers, crisps, or baguette.

  8. Enjoy!
