There’s no better excuse to finish off a bag of chips than a good queso dip. I have a special recipe I make almost every Sunday. I laugh every time my boyfriend or his friends compliment me on it because it’s a vegan recipe! There’s zero cheese or milk in it and everyone LOVES it.
With the Super Bowl around the corner, I felt now was the perfect time to share this easy queso recipe. It’s creamy like a queso, has a hint of spice, and comes together so easily.
The Popular Dip Made Healthy!
Traditional queso is delicious, but can leave a heavy feeling in your stomach. The multiple types of cheese, including cream cheese, milk, and butter are high-fat foods that can lead to an upset stomach. Especially if you’re munching on it all day.
This vegan recipe version of a queso dip is much lighter and contains fewer calories. The nine ingredients, including water and salt, are much easier to digest than a lactose-heavy side dish. Plus, if you have any dairy-free friends over, they’ll appreciate being able to chow down with everyone!
