What Type of Cranberries to Use Fresh or Frozen?

You can use either fresh or frozen cranberries in this recipe. If using frozen cranberries, thaw them first and drain any excess water.

Spices and Seasoning

I’m using Tony Chachere’s seasoning in this recipe. I have been a fan of their store-bought seasoning for YEARS. I use it in my Instant Pot Gumbo, Instant Pot Cabbage, Instant Pot Collard Greens, and other recipes.

It has always been my go-to Creole seasoning because it is packed with flavor. I’m so excited that I recently noticed they have lite and no salt versions now!

I used their More Spice creole seasoning in this recipe. You can use original creole seasoning if you wish. This one has a little kick!

How to Make Jalapeno Cranberry Dip

  1. Add cranberries, jalapeno (stem and seeds removed), lemon juice, sweetener, and Creole seasoning to a food processor.
  2. Pulse a few times to combine the ingredients.
  3. Add cream cheese to the bottom on an 8×8 baking dish or 9 inch pie plate.
  4. Top the cream cheese with the cranberry and jalapeno mixture. Spread it throughout.
  5. Chill.

How to Store the Dip/How Long it Will Last in the Fridge

The dip will last in the fridge for about 3 days. If you are making it ahead, I recommend making it the night before.

Freezer Tips

Because this dip is made with dairy ingredients, if frozen it will have separation and become watery. A frozen cheese or cream dip would either be crumbly or watery when it is thawed. I would not freeze this dip. You can read more about How to Freeze Dips here.
