  • 1 12 oz bag whole fresh cranberries
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 1/8 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder optional for added flavor
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 16 oz cream cheese, softened


  • Chop cranberries in a food processor or blender, making sure not to chop too much that they liquify. You can also chop the cranberries with a knife.
  • Place chopped cranberries in a large bowl. Stir in sugar, chili powder, jalapenos, green onion, cilantro, and lemon juice. Cover and place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours up to overnight.
  • When ready to make, whip cream cheese with an electric mixer. Spread the cream cheese in a 9-inch pie plate or serving dish. Top with the cranberry mixture.
  • Serve or cover and store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
