3/4 cup Cashews, raw

1/3 cup+3 tbs Nutritional yeast

2 tbs Taco seasoning

1 & 1/2 tbs Apple cider vinegar

1/4 tsp Garlic powder

1/2 tsp Garlic, fresh chopped (about 1 clove)

1/4 tsp Salt, plus more to taste

1 cup Plant-based milk, unsweetened

1 cup Salsa, chunky

Pinch Turmeric for color (optional)


  1. Add raw cashews and water to a pot, cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and boil cashews for about 20 minutes.
  2. Rinse and drain cashews; let them cool for about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the cashews and all remaining ingredients except for the salsa to a food processor/high speed blender, unless you’d prefer a silkier texture, in which case you can add the salsa, too. Blend until smooth.
  4. Transfer queso dip to a pot and heat over medium-low. Stir in salsa and serve when hot.
