3 step creamy and cheesy vegan queso
Inspired by Chipotle's Queso Blanco, this healthier alternative only takes 3 steps to make, and it is the perfect addition to any burrito or taco!
Before transitioning to plant-based, I used to love queso in any shape, size, or form, but queso blanco specifically was definitely a favorite in our household. That's why I am so happy I found a recipe that imitates queso blanco, but is made with only wholesome and healthy ingredients. I use this queso as a dip for chips, in burritos and tacos, and as a creamy and cheesy addition to rice bowls!
1 cup cashews (soaked overnight in room temp water or 2 hours in hot water)
1 cup water
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
1 tbsp bell pepper (chopped)
1/2 tbsp poblano pepper (chopped)
1/4 tsp salt
Step by step:
Place your soaked and drained cashews, water, nutritional yeast, and salt into a blender
On medium to high speed, blend the ingredients together until they reach a smooth consistency
Fold in your peppers, and then use your queso immediately in a recipe or place in the fridge in a sealed container for up to seven days!
