The instructions are simple. Pretty much all you have to do is chopped everything up and mix it all together. One important detail would be to make sure you seed your jalabeno pepper, oh and don't touch your eyes soon after. (As always I've learned the hard way.)
I always start with my cranberries and I use my Pampered Chef food chopper to do so. I also know people who use a food processor but make sure you don't over do it. You do want it to be slightly chunky. The chopping does take some time and effort but I promise the rewards are well worth it. Then I seed and chop the jalabeno pepper and green onion. Next I add the sugar and cumin. For some reason I always save the cilantro for last, maybe because cilantro is my favorite. Always use fresh and I use kitchen scissors to cut it up fairly well.
Generously top the block of cream cheese with this goodness and then serve with your favorite snack crackers.
