I am officially obsessed with making cheesy creamy vegan sauces and dips. And that makes you the lucky recipient of my efforts. THIS. This is one of my new favorites! I set out to create a dip that was super simple, not a lot of prep and quick to make. And I definitely wanted it made with whole foods. There are quite a few Mexican white cheese dips out there that include things like vegan cheeses such a Daiya, vegan sour cream, oil, butter, etc. but this one has none of those! The creaminess is a combo of potato, cashews and cashew milk, with flavor coming in from all of the other ingredients. All whole food, all amazing. My dirty little secret is the pickled jalapeño juice, it gives it that true white queso dip flavor: creamy, cheesy, with the jalapeño tang! This vegan queso blanco dip is perfect for Cinco do Mayo, the upcoming days of summer, or really any time!
I’m going to warn you, if you make this, prepare to eat it and try not to burn your tongue. I may or may not have a few less taste buds due to cheese burn. Just sayin’. I brought this vegan queso blanco to a party, slipped it on the table and watched as it was devoured. No one knew it was vegan. Everyone stuffed their face and it was glorious. It’s best served warm, like borderline hot. I put it in a mini crockpot and it was perfect. Be careful not to put it on high because it will burn.
So, let’s talk healthy for a second. Remember a while ago I mentioned my new favorite skincare brand, OSEA Malibu? It was in my post for my Asparagus Pesto recipe. What I love about OSEA is that, other than being vegan, they use all natural products AND they work. I am still using them and I am still super excited about them. In fact, I just bought a few other things I want to try (they originally sent me some to try for free) so this should really show how much I love this brand. They are not paying me to say this, I am technically spending since I can’t stop buying products! LOL. Anyway, this is how I approach my food. I want it natural. I want it plant based. But I also want it GOOD. This vegan queso blanco dip recipe has it all!
There is no time to waste! Grab a potato, your cashews, chiles, jalapeños and get blending! I won’t judge you if this is dinner. Or lunch. Or heck, even breakfast! Get your stretchy pants, find a good movie and curl up on the couch. If you’re nice, you will share this vegan queso blanco with your loved ones. But if you don’t, I will still love you because I get it. Sometimes amazing food is best eaten alone 😉 Tell me what you’re thinking! Did you lick the screen? I cannot wait to hear!
