Dairy-Free Vegan Queso Dip

Share

This Dairy-Free Vegan Queso Dip is a healthy Cinco de Mayo recipe that I always make for our annual party to celebrate the Mexican holiday. It is so delicious that non-vegans can’t tell that there is no queso in the dip! The secret ingredient is nutritional yeast. I am so happy to share it with you today.

Start by blending cashew nuts, water, sea salt, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, turmeric and the liquid from a can of tomatoes with chiles. Mix the tomatoes through the queso dip and heat gently in a saucepan over low heat or a small crockpot. Serve with baked tortilla chips or assorted sliced vegetables.

To make this Dairy-Free Vegan Queso Dip, you will need the following ingredients:

Not really spicy but you can make it spicy if you add in a some drops of hot sauce.

Emilee Didio

Needed a little bit more lemon juice and salt other than that it was good and you can mix whatever else you want in to it and it will combine perfectly with just about everything.
