Cranbery Salsa!


Hi Sweeties! As I promised, there will be lots of scrumptious recipes for you to try this week! In  fact, I am giving you a double dose today. Tune in again after 7:00 and there will be another unique Thanksgiving recipe for you to try:-) Today I am sharing my cranberry salsa recipe with you. This is that perfect recipe to serve to your guests while they are anxiously waiting for that amazing turkey and everyone is whispering among themselves "when is dinner going to be ready?" This refreshing salsa is sweet with a little heat. That could actually describe some of  us, huh? LOL

You can adjust the heat on this salsa by removing the seeds from the Jalapeno pepper, but I wanted to bring the fire, so I left half of them in. I am bringing the heat baby! This salsa  is very flavorful with a little kick at the end. There are lots of delicious flavors that blend together to make this super tasty and the preparation for this is quick and easy. I like to serve this with tortilla chips. If you want some next level deliciousness, spread a layer of cream cheese on a dish and pour this on top. It is crazy good! perfect with crackers or tortilla chips.

Ingredients

1 12 ounce package fresh cranberries
1 Jalapeno pepper
1/4 cup green onion chopped
1/4 cup cilantro chopped
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon cumin
2 tablespoons lime juice
dash salt

optional (cream cheese)

Directions: put your cranberries and jalapeno pepper in a mini chopper or food processor. Pulse until the cranberries are chopped, but still a little chunky. Chop up green onion and cilantro into small pieces. Add all ingredients and mix together. Refrigerate for at least a few hours to allow cranberries to soften a little and for flavors to blend.

I promise you this is ridiculously delicious!

I am trying to tempt you. Is it working? Can you see those fresh chunks of jalapeno and cilantro? This will definitely tickle your taste buds.




Next level deliciousness. Pour the salsa on top of cream cheese!
