Oooh I love this dip!! I got the recipe from my friend Carolyn and it rocks. I took it to a Halloween party last weekend and it was received very well. I think it will be my go-to appetizer from now on. (I just have to remember to buy a couple bags of cranberries while they are in season and freeze them). Thanks for the great recipe Carolyn!
Cranberry and Cream Cheese Salsa
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sour cream
12 oz fresh cranberries
4 green onions, chopped in big pieces
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 bunch of cilantro, long stems removed
1/2 cup sugar
juice of 2 limes (juiced at room temperature)
1 medium jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped in big pieces
Combine cream cheese and sour cream until smooth and spread in a thick layer on a large plate, pie plate, or small platter. Set aside while you make the salsa.
In a food processor or blender combine: cranberries, green onions, garlic, salt, cilantro, sugar, lime juice, and jalapeno. Process until combined and cranberry pieces are very small. Spread over the cream cheese layer. Serve immediately with tortilla chips.
