Vegan Queso Dip
Don't mind my picture. It smelled too delicious, I couldn't help myself... I had to have some! :) I LOVE that "extra kick" to absolutely everything! So EXTRA jalapenos to this dish is always a must.
Jalapenos (fresh- cut)
Vegan grounded beef
Tomatoes & Green onions (diced/chopped- add on top after done baking... optional)
Ingredients for Nacho Cheese:
2 cups water
1/4 cup raw cashews
One 4oz. jar pimentos (drained)
1 cup nutritional yeast flakes
2 TBSP of cornstarch
1 TBSP of fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 TSP of salt, or to taste
1/2 TSP of onion powder
1/4 TSP of garlic powder
1/2 TSP of cumin, heaping
Directions for Nacho Cheese (makes about 2 cups):
Combine all ingredients in a Vita-Mix or other blender, and blend until completely smooth. Transfer mixture to a medium sauce pan and whisk constantly over medium heat until thickened, about 5 to 6 minutes.
Also serve with fresh veggies!
I eat mines with Multi-Grain tortilla chips (bake chips 350 degrees, for about 5 mins. until hot & crispy)
Directions for the Queso Dip:
Once nacho cheese is completed, and you have already seasoned and pan fried your vegan grounds... place grounds in a shallow baking dish and top with nacho cheese sauce/sliced jalapenos. Bake for about 15-20 mins in 375 degrees. Top with diced tomatoes & sliced green onions.
