12oz. fresh, uncooked Cranberries
1/4 cup Green Onions
1 - 2 fresh Jalapeño Peppers
2 Tablespoons Cilantro (optional)
3/4 - 1 cup Sugar (according to taste), I have used Monkfruit sweetener and it was delish!
1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
1/8 teaspoon Salt
16oz. Cream Cheese, whipped (I have been lazy and bought the pre-whipped)
Use hand food chopper to chop cranberries. A food processor will liquify them too much!
Chop green onions, jalapeños, 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 gently stir to combine.
Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
Take cranberry mixture out of refrigerator and stir all ingredients togther. Strain out all liquid using a collander with small holes or a mesh strainer.
Whip softened cream cheese with a hand mixer until smooth, about 2 minutes. Spread cream cheese over bottom of a pie plate or a pretty 9" x 9" dish.
Pour cranberry mixture over cream cheese and keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
Great with Ritz crackers!
