Cranberry cream cheese cracker dip appetizer EVER! From

Looking for a crowd-pleasing, SUPER easy, ridiculously delicious appetizer…just in time for Thanksgiving Day? Look no further! I thought I'd re-post my favorite appetizer of all time…this delicious Cranberry Cream Cheese Cracker Dip! Thank you to Jamie Cooks it Up for letting me use her picture, since I failed to take a decent one before we all ate it up!

Enjoy this as much as we all do 🙂

(Most Amazing) Cranberry Cream Cheese Cracker Dip

(Printable version of the recipe here)


  • 1 (12oz) package fresh cranberries
  • 1-2 jalapenos without seeds, depending on desired taste. (I used 2 and loved it – it’s not spicy!
  • ½ bunch green onions
  • ¼ – ½ C chopped fresh cilantro (I used 2 entire bunches, the crowd loved it – not too overpowering)
  • ½ C sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 (8oz) packages cream cheese, softened


Finely chop cranberries, jalapenos, green onions, and cilantro. Using a food processor is nice and easy!  Mix together. Add sugar, cumin, and lemon juice. Stir and serve immediately, or let it sit in the fridge for a few hours to let the flavors meld. Serve over cream cheese with crackers.

Notes: I didn’t use the green onions or cumin last time, and it was still amazing. Be playful with it! Don’t concentrate too much on measurements. I basically eyeball it every time and it’s never disappointed me.

  1. have to admit I have never made anything w/ fresh cranberries. SOOOO do you just put them in the processor raw? Sorry for the dumb q!

    • Not a dumb Q at all! It was my first time as well. Yes, you just wash them off and toss them in whole. Easy peasy!
