3 Ingredient Vegan Queso

  • Author: Pinerday
  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Total Time: 5 mins
  • Yield: 1 1/2 cups vegan queso 1x


  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 4 ounce can diced green chiles (or less, to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon taco seasoning (add a pinch of salt if it’s unsalted)


  1. Blend on a high setting until you get a very smooth and creamy texture. Taste and adjust to how you like it.
  2. Use it as chip dip, a sauce for roasted vegetables, or just smother it on your tacos, burritos, and crunchwraps.


It is recommended to use some of the recipes I’ve seen in cashews, but I found that you can get good results without soaking! I only care about one simple thing. In my experience, if you have a good mixer, you don’t need to soak.

High speed blenders (Blendtec, Vitamix, Ninja or something similar) are the best! If not, I think it can still be used, but a) you might get the bean texture according to your taste (not necessarily a bad thing, it still tastes good), or b) you might find the benefits of soaking cashew.
