healthy queso dip love

One of my favorite things in life is queso/mexican dishes... however, with my new healthy living goals, here is a healthier version... 
Healthy Queso Dip (dairy-free, soy-free)
Serves: 2.5 cups
A creamy, dairy-free queso, similar to the popular Ro*tel dip!
  • 1 cup raw cashews, soaked for up to 4 hours and drained
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • juice of half a lemon (about 1½ tablespoons)
  • 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • ⅛ teaspoon turmeric
  • 14 oz. can diced tomatoes with green chiles
  1. In a high-speed blender, or food processor, combine the first six ingredients, plus the liquid from the can of diced tomatoes and green chiles. (I was able to get about ¼ cup of liquid from the can.)
  2. Blend until a smooth and creamy “cheese” sauce is created.
  3. Transfer the cheese mixture to a large bowl, then add in the can of diced tomatoes and green chiles. Stir well to combine.
  4. At this point, be sure to adjust any flavors to your taste, then warm the dip using a small crock pot, or by heating it gently over a stove top. As the dip is warmed, it becomes even more authentic!
  5. Serve with baked tortilla chips and fresh sliced veggies, for a nutritious party snack!
