Cranberry Jalapeno Cream Cheese Dip

Cranberry Jalapeno Cream Cheese Dip


  • 12 ounces fresh cranberries
  • 5 green onions, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, finely diced
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup + 2 Tablespoons Monin Habanero Lime Syrup (divided)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 (8 ounces each) packages cream cheese, light or regular, softened

  • Yield: 12 servings
  • Garnish: Cilantro


  1. Pulse the cranberries in a food processor or blender until coarsely chopped. Add the green onions, cilantro, jalapeno, sugar, cumin and 2 tablespoons of the Monin Habanero-Lime Gourmet Flavoring and salt and pulse until the ingredients are well combined and finely chopped. Transfer the mixture to a covered bowl and refrigerate for at least 4 hours (or up to overnight) so the flavors have time to develop.
  2. Just prior to serving, use an electric mixer, blender, food processor or hand whisk to beat cream cheese and remaining 1/3 cup of Monin Habanero-Lime Gourmet Flavoring until fluffy.
  3. Spread the cream cheese mixture in an even layer on a serving plate or in a 9-inch pie dish. Top with the cranberry-jalapeno mixture, spreading evenly over the top of the cream cheese.
  4. Serve with crostini, assorted crackers, tortilla or vegetable chips
