A cashew-based queso dip that has tons of flavor and would fool even the pickiest of queso aficionados! This recipe is best made in a high powered blender (I have a Vitamix®). I cannot say what it would be like in something different! Enjoy with tortilla chips or homemade salsa.

  • Combine drained cashews, remaining 1 1/4 cup hot water, nutritional yeast, salsa, garlic, ancho chile powder, Dijon mustard, cumin, and salt in a high-powered blender (such as Vitamix®). Start blending at lowest speed and slowly increase the speed. Blend for 2 minutes. Add more hot water if you want the queso to have a pourable consistency.

Cook's Note:

You can use pico de gallo instead of fresh salsa.

Don’t have a Vitamix? Soak the cashews 4-8 hours and they will blend up satiny smooth in a regular blender. We can’t do dairy and this method works great for all creamy dips, dressings, and sauces. Read More

I made this exactly as written and it is delicious. We served it over pasta and added shrimp. I'll make it again and again. Read More
