Cranberry Jalapeno Cream Cheese Dip

WMPROS

"This is a fun dip that is both sweet and spicy. I got the recipe by varying other cranberry salsa and dip recipes I have found. I got the idea of the fusion of oil from a friend. There are many ideas for use and a great item to take along when you want to surprise your friends with something they probably have not tried. Serve with Triscuits®, pita chips, or crackers."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Heat a saucepan over medium heat; add oil. Stir cranberries into hot oil and cook until cranberries absorb most of oil, 5 to 10 minutes. Mix sugar, water, jalapeno peppers, lemon juice, cilantro, and salt into cranberries; cook until reduced and softened, 10 to 15 more minutes. Add more water if needed.
  2. Pulse cranberry mixture in a food processor or blender until very smooth; cool completely.
  3. Stir cooled cranberry mixture and cream cheese together in a bowl until smooth and creamy.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • You may add more or less sugar to taste. You may also want another jalapeno to add more heat. Can use coconut oil instead of vegetable oil.
  • This makes a great spread for sandwiches or add to crackers and add turkey for a colorful appetizer. Also makes a great addition to a turkey dinner in lieu of cranberry sauce.

Ok I haven't tried it yet, but I'm sure its gonna be a five star, I was just wondering what do you think about FRESH Cranberries.

If you exchange all the dried ingredients with fresh (and halve the oil), you get a much tastier, more vibrant dish.

I did not care for this recipe.

This was amazing!! I ended up shaping it into a cheese ball. It would have been excellent rolled in nuts. Everyone at my party asked for the recipe!

Fresh cranberries are a must too. Makes ALL the difference. Pulse them with cilantro and jalapeño.

too thick and too sweet.
