Crazy cranberry craving

This cranberry salsa is addictive, festive and every other wonderful -ive. The red from the cranberries is deliciously complemented by green flecks of cilantro and spread over a combo of cream cheese and sour cream. Serve it with tortilla chips. I'm telling you, this dish gets nothing but praise.

THE RECIPE:

8 oz. cream cheese (I use reduced-fat)
1/2 c. sour cream (I use reduced-fat)
12 oz. bag fresh cranberries, rinsed
Half a medium onion or 3-4 green onions
Half a cilantro bunch
1 jalapeno or Anaheim pepper, seeds removed
2 cloves garlic, pressed
1 tsp. salt
1/2 c. sugar
Juice of 2 limes

Mix cream cheese and sour cream and spread on platter for bottom layer. Blend everything else in food processor to form top layer. Serve with tortilla chips. Refrain from overindulgence.

I love this recipe too! I also loved your Crab Ragoon I tried this Christmas! Keep the good recipes coming! I decided to give a try at my own food blog, but it's still in the beginning stages. If you want to check it out, it's www.carriescookingcorner.blogspot.com
I posted the Cranberry Salsa on there too when I made it this year.
