Hand chop all the cranberries into bite size pieces
Chop green onion, jalapenos and cilantro (if using)
In a bowl combine cranberries, green onion, cilantro and jalapenos
Add sugar, lemon juice and salt and lightly mix until combined.
Cover and place in fridge overnight
The next day take out the mixture and stir. Drain out the liquid using a collander.
Whip softened cream cheese. I used a hand mixer to make it go quicker. I'd say it takes anywhere from 2-4 minutes to get to the right texture.
Transfer the cream cheese to a circular pie dish and spread evenly on the bottom.
Top the cream cheese with the cranberry jalapeno mixture. Make sure its evenly spread out.
Keep in fridge until ready to eat. Serve with crackers and enjoy!
