Cranberry Cream Cheese Dip

Cranberry Cream Cheese Dip: Savory Sweet and Satsifying

I can not believe how delicious this dip was. I was worried about it being too spicy so I halved the recipe and made one batch with jalapeño and one without. The batch with the jalapeño was not that spicy at all in fact my mom, who can't handle even the littlest bit of spice ate some. I did take the seeds out because I was afraid of it being too spicy, but next time I will leave the seeds in. If you are not a fan of spice you can always leave out the jalapeño completely, it will still taste delicious.

Cranberry Cream Cheese Dip
Ingredients:
12 ounces fresh cranberries
1/4 cup chopped green onion
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
1 small jalapeño pepper, chopped into small pieces
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2- 8 ounce packages reduced fat cream cheese, room temperature

For Serving (not included in the nutritional info):
crackers, like Wheat Thins or Triscuits

Directions:
In a food processor, add the cranberries, green onion, cilantro and jalaepño. Pulse until everything is evenly chopped into small pieces. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and add in the sugar and lemon juice. Mix well, cover and store in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours.

When ready to serve, spread the cream cheese into an even layer on a large plate. Pour the cranberry mixture on top and spread into an even layer.
