Cranberry Cilantro Cream Cheese Dip

This is delicious!  These flavors all blend INCREDIBLE together.  My new favorite.  Thanks again to Jamie at Jamie Cooks It Up  :)

1  12 oz package fresh cranberries
1/4 C green onion, chopped
1/4 C cilantro, chopped
1 small jalapeno pepper
1 1/4 C sugar
1/4 t cumin
2 T lemon juice
dash salt
2  8 oz packages cream cheese

1.  Put your cranberries in a food processor.
2.  Chop the green onion, jalapeno, and cilantro.  Omit the seeds of the jalapeno if you don't want the heat.
3.  Add all the ingredients EXCEPT THE CREAM CHEESE into a bowl.  Mix well.  Cover and store in the fridge for at least 4 hours.  (If you don't give the sugar time to make friends with the cranberries, it will taste bitter!)
4.  When you are ready to serve, place your room temperature cream cheese on a plate and spread it around nicely and evenly.
5.  Pour cranberry mixture over cream cheese and spread evenly.
6.  Serve with crackers or tortilla chips.
