Editor's Tip: Soak the cashews for at least eight hours. The longer they're soaked, the queso will. Don't have eight hours? You can place them in hot, but not boiling, water for 15 minutes for similar results.

Step 2: Make some magic

Get the cashews ready by draining and rinsing them, and then adding to a food processor with 1 cup water, nutritional yeast, cilantro, lime juice, salt and chili powder. Blend in the food processor for three to four minutes, making sure to stop and scrape the sides when necessary.

Editor's Tip: The nutritional yeast (also known as "nooch") gives the queso that delicious umami flavor. To enhance it further, add a splash of white wine or distilled white vinegar. You can also sprinkle in some turmeric to bring out its golden hue.

Creamy Vegan Potato Soup. There is a reason this is one of my more popular recipes! This is a smooth, luscious, warming from the inside out, perfect fall soup. After making this creamy vegan potato soup I declared that from now on, I am going to make soup.

Step 3: Heat and eat

Add the queso to a small saucepan with the tomatoes until well-heated. Enjoy with tortilla chips and vegetables.

Pro tip: You can make this queso into a meal by pairing it with nachos, burrito bowls, potatoes (can you say breakfast?) and tacos, or whatever else could use a dollop!

Make the Queso Your Own

As far as we're concerned, the best queso is a creamy queso. Find your favorite texture by adding your favorite nut milk—we prefer almond milk for this recipe—or extra water.

If you prefer your queso a little spicier, you can blend in some hot sauce (it tastes even better homemade) or jalapeno pepper with the rest of the ingredients. Just add as much as you like to achieve your desired heat.

How to Store

Like pizza, cold queso is just as delicious as a freshly made batch. Cover and store in a bowl for up to five days in the fridge, reheating on the stove or in the microwave. You can add water as needed if it's too thick.

Chipotle just added a new protein option to menus nationwide.
Chipotle already had steak on the menu, and now it has even more. Carne Asada, marketed as the chain’s most tender cut, is grilled in restaurant, hand-sliced, seasoned and finished with lime and chopped cilantro. It’s Whole30 approved (no sugar, alcohol, grains, legumes, soy or dairy), paleo compliant (a caveman would eat this) and costs 50 cents more than Chipotle's original steak. © Roman Tiraspolsky/shutterstock.
