You guys! This Cranberry Jalapeno Cream Cheese Dip!!!! It has been re-pinned and viewed over 4,000,000 times in three years.
It basically breaks my website every holiday season; it’s that good!
It is so festive and made up of such a unique combination of flavors.
Cranberry, jalapeno, green onion and cream cheese all come together to make one of the best appetizers I’ve had in a long time.
Pin it for later!
If I’m honest, I didn’t expect to love it as much as I did. I don’t even like cranberries! But please believe me when I tell you that when my sweet friend made it for us, I ate more than half of the entire plate (yes, I was totally that girl at the party.)
Shortly after, I made this appetizer for a surprise birthday party where a mob of people surrounded it until it was completely gone (some ate more than others, but I won’t name any names.) 😉
There are very few things that I’ve made that had so many people asking, “Can you please send me this recipe?!”

I’ve already told my family that I’m making this dip for Thanksgiving and Christmas every year for the rest of my life, because the colors and flavors are way too perfect not to!
It is the ideal blend of tart, spicy and sweet, and when eaten with crackers, it is simply one of the most “complete” dishes I’ve tasted.
With that said, I hope that you enjoy this as much as I do and that this allows you to check “Find Holiday Appetizer” off of your to-do list!

- CLICK PINTEREST PHOTO FOR INSTRUCTIONS
Use hand food chopper to chop cranberries. (It is best to not use a food processor to chop these as the cranberries liquify too much.)
Chop green onion, jalapeño peppers and cilantro.
In a medium-sized bowl, add chopped cranberries, green onion, cilantro and jalapeños.
Add sugar, lemon juice and salt on top of cranberry mixture and stir gently until blended.
Cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator overnight.
Take cranberry mixture out of the refrigerator and stir all ingredients together. Strain out all liquid using a collander with small holes.
Whip softened cream cheese with hand mixer until smooth (about 2 minutes) and spread cream cheese over bottom of a pie plate or 9x9 dish.
Pour cranberry mixture atop cream cheese and keep in refrigerator until ready to serve.
Use a spoon to spread over Ritz crackers and enjoy!!
