Serves: 4 small servings
  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 3 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • 1¼ cups water
  • 2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 10oz can diced tomatoes with green chilies, drained
  • 1 Tbsp sweet chili sauce
  1. Blend your cashews into a fine powder. In a small saucepan, over medium heat, add the cashews, yeast, salt, garlic powder, and water. Whisk a couple minutes until thick. Remove from heat, and whisk in the mustard.
  2. If your queso is looking chunky, pour into a blender and blend until smooth. Add back to the saucepan, add the tomatoes, and sweet chili sauce(omit for less spiciness). Stir and enjoy!
