Cashew Queso


  • 1 cup of cashews (soak in really hot water for 5-10 minutes, or any temperature water for longer
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 tbsp Franks Hot Sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 cup of salsa of choice (I am certifiably obsessed with


  • Set aside the cup of salsa and add all of the other ingredients and spices to a high speed blender. Process until smooth and set aside.
  • Heat the cashew cream on low-medium heat for about 10 minutes before use.
  • Add the cup of salsa & stir well. Serve warm with chips, in a burrito, on a bowl, salad, tacos, nachos, etc. YUM!
