  • 12 ounces fresh cranberries
  • 5 green onions chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 jalapeno pepper seeded and finely diced
  • 3/4 cup sugar more or less, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 16 ounces cream cheese room temperature


  • Place the cranberries in the bowl of your food processor or blender. Pulse to give them a rough chop. Add the green onions, cilantro, jalapeno, sugar, cumin, lemon juice, and salt. Pulse until well combined and finely chopped, but not pureed. Refrigerate for 4 hours (longer if desired, up 24 hours).
  • Spread the cream cheese on a serving plate or pie plate in an even layer. Top with the cranberry mixture.
