So I make many recipes, only the very best make it on my blog. Sometimes I alter a recipe to suit ingredients available or personal tastes. These changes are noted. I will always refer back to the original recipe and blogger.
It is with pleasure that I share a recipe I found on My Kitchen Cafe, a favorite blog at my house.
Mel's Cranberry Jalapeno Cream Cheese Dip
or Cranberry Salsa12 ounces fresh cranberries
5 green onions
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro (I used at least 1/2 cup, we love cilantro!)
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely diced
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cumin
2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice (I didn't measure, just juiced then entire lemon)
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 8 ounce packages softened cream cheese
Crackers or tortilla chips
Pulse cranberries in food processor until coarsely chopped. A Pampered Chef Chopped also works well for this task. Add green onions, cilantro, jalapeno, sugar, lemon juice and spices. Pulse till combined. Put mixture in a covered bowl and refrigerate for 4 hours or over night.
To serve spread softened cream cheese on a serving plate, cover with cranberry salsa. Serve with crackers, pita chips or tortilla chips.
This recipe has been served twice, both times with excellent reviews. It is perfect for your holiday buffet.
Candise had a friend over yesterday; Lindsey and her two cute boys spent the afternoon. The children played happily while the Mom's munched on this dip and sewed a darling banner. Something they saw on Pinterest I'm sure. Lindsey blogs at The R House, hopefully she will post a photo of the cute banner they made.
I'm grateful to have found another recipe to enjoy and share with those I love!
