Creamy Queso: Welcome


Creamy Vegan Queso


1 Cup raw cashews (soaked overnight if you don’t have a high speed blender)

½ cup nutritional yeast

1 tsp salt

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp onion powder

2-3 roasted red bell peppers

3 tbsp liquid from bell pepper jar

1 to 1 ½ cup water

1 can diced tomatoes with green chiles (Rotel)


Combine cashews, nutritional yeast, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, bell peppers and liquid in a high speed blender.  Add ½ to 1 cup of water and blend until smooth.  Start with about a cup and add more as needed but don’t let it get too thin. Once fully blended, move to a sauce pan and heat over medium heat.  Add can of tomatoes and chiles and cook until warm and creamy.
