Cranberry Cream Cheese Dip

I've never been one to eat fruit in salsa.  I've always thought it was weird.  Until I tried this Cranberry Cream Cheese Dip.  It was a life changing moment.  I quickly fell in love with the dip and made some for my sweet hubby.  I had him try it out before dinner and he took the plate and a package of crackers and told me he wasn't going to be hungry for dinner.  I think that was a good sign.

1 bag fresh cranberries
1/2 bunch cilantro
1 jalapeno, seeded and cut into 4-6 pieces
1 bunch green onions, cut into 2 inch pieces
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cumin
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

Place cranberries, cilantro, jalapeno and green onions in the bowl of a food processor and process until finely chopped.  Pour into a medium sized bowl and add sugar and cumin; mix well.  Spread cream cheese onto a serving platter and top with desired amount of cranberry salsa (I use about 3/4 of the salsa).  Serve with tortilla chips and/or crackers.

Recipe from my friend Tasha.
