Cranberry-Jalapeño Cream Cheese Dip
We’ve taken the classic cream cheese and pepper jelly combo that we all know and love, and added even more flavor. Our Cranberry-Jalapeño Cream Cheese Dip adds some tartness, sugar, and muted spiciness to the classic holiday appetizer. It’s visually striking, with bright crimson and ruby tones, making it perfect for fall parties, and the balance of the cranberries, sugar, jalapeños, lime, and cilantro will make this the appetizer all your friends will ask for. Using a fine dish sieve to drain the salsa is a great way to remove a lot of the liquid syrup, and will make your dip look so much prettier. Plus, you can repurpose all that syrup into some delicious cocktails. If you’d rather use reduced fat cream cheese, that’s totally fine—it’ll make no changes to the taste. You can always scoop up leftover dip with extra crackers, but we also recommend using it in a turkey sandwich.
