Cranberry-cheese Cracker Spread

This recipe was passed onto me by my friend Allison and has rapidly become one of my favorites. Serve this with wheat thins (my favorite), triscots or ritz crackers. You blend in 2 stages as if you try to do it all at once it comes out a brownish colored instead of a pretty red and green.

1 package cranberries
1 c sugar

Mix the above in a food processor (or blender) till finely chopped. Pour into a bowl. Clean your food processor out.

1 c cilantro
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded
2 green onions

Mix the above in a food processor. Stir gently into the cranberry mixture.

In a pie pan or serving dish spread 1 container softened cream cheese. Spread the cranberry mixture on top. Serve.
