A delicious, healthy, and cheesy plant-based queso made from cashews. This cheese dip gives you the cheese fix you desire without sacrificing taste or your health. It’s made with cashews and a few spices. That’s it! No dairy or processed ingredients.



  1. If you don’t have a Vitamix or high-speed blender, soak your cashews for 20-30 mins. and they will soften. It will make them creamier as they are blended.
  2. Put all ingredients, EXCEPT SALSA, into a blender and process until smooth and creamy.
  3. Pour into bowl, add salsa, and enjoy!
  4. If you want, you can warm this in a small sauce pan on low to low-medium heat. Stir regularly so it doesn’t burn. It will thicken even more as it heats up.


Nutritional Yeast can be purchased in almost any health food store and it’s usually found in the bulk section. But, many grocery stores are carrying it now as well. I have provided a link in the ingredient section where you can purchase on Amazon, but just for the record, I’m not an getting paid for it. You can also purchase by clicking HERE.

To give this queso a little “kick”, add a few jalapenos to your mixture at the end. You can also add a teaspoon of smoked paprika for added flavor.

Using baked chips like TOSTITOS Oven Baked SCOOPS or making your own chips make this an even healthier snack. You can find my recipe for How To Make Your Own Chips here.
