Easy, cheesy, totally dairy-free cashew queso! This luscious vegan cheese is loaded with flavor and easy to make, with just 7 ingredients.
Place the cashews, nutritional yeast, hot sauce, onion powder, garlic powder, and ¼ cup of water into the bowl of a food processor fitted with an s-blade.
Blend until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.
Thin with anywhere between ¼ and ¾ cup of water, depending on desired thickness (I used about ½ cup in the batch shown in the photos). Blend again until smooth.
Season the queso with salt to taste, and adjust any other seasonings to your liking.
Makes about 1 ½ cups, but the amount will vary depending on how much liquid you use for thinning.
