Festive Cranberry Salsa
12-ounce bag fresh cranberries
1 jalapeno pepper, minced
1 cup sugar
1½ teaspoons cumin
¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
¼ cup red onion, chopped
Two 8-ounce bricks cream cheese
Chop cranberries in food processor. Add jalapeno, cilantro, sugar, cumin and chopped onion. Mix well.
Place an 8 ounce brick of cream cheese on a pretty plate and spoon sauce over cream cheese. Serve with crackers. (Makes 2)
This little appetizer is so easy and so much fun! Have several trays or baskets of crackers arranged next to pretty combinations of cream cheese/spreads served up on holiday plates. Place around the room, near where people are visiting. The only requirement is a sweet/spicy combination of flavors….Bright green hot pepper jelly, red and golden fruit flavored chipotle sauces, salsa, or mix shrimp cocktail sauce with a well drained can of flaked crab and pour over cream cheese! Wheat Thins are the perfect little nibblers.
