It is the perfect blend of sweet, spicy and addictiveness that you need at your upcoming holiday party.
The bright red and green colors are perfectly festive for Christmas as well.
All I have to say is that this is the best dip I have ever tried and no one will stop at just one bite.
Sweet & Spicy Cranberry Cream Cheese Dip
Slightly Adapted from Let’s Dish
1 (12 oz.) package fresh cranberries
1/2 cup fresh cilantro
1 small jalapeno pepper, seeded
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/4 tsp. cumin
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
Dash of salt
2 (8 oz.) packages cream cheese, softened
Crackers (1 large box of Wheat Thins or Ritz work great)
1. Pulse cranberries, cilantro and jalapeno in a blender or food processor until finely chopped. (You may have to divide the ingredients and blend in a few different batches so you don’t overwork your blender.)
2. In a medium bowl, combine the cranberry mixture, sugar, cumin, lemon juice and salt. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
3. When ready to serve, spread cream cheese in an even layer on a plate or platter. Spread cranberry mixture evenly over the cream cheese. Serve with crackers for dipping.
