This recipe is inspired by the viral Cottage Cheese Queso recipe that swept social media recently. It’s pretty much the same recipe BUT with silken tofu instead of cottage cheese. The taste and texture are very similar PLUS it has a comparable amount of protein in it.

Why you’ll LOVE this Tofu Nacho Cheese Sauce

  • It’s an EASY vegan recipe -we all love those! It’s great for serving at parties or even just as a side for taco night!
  • It’s nut-free – most vegan cheese sauces have cashews or some other kind of nut in them. While I truly LOVE a good cashew queso, this nut free option is even easier and has less fat in it.
  • It’s dairy-free – perfect for those people in your life that don’t like/ can’t consume dairy :)
  • It’s an amazing vegan cheese option – the cheesy flavor of this queso is SO good and the texture is creamy and smooth!

Ingredients in this Tofu Queso

  • Silken tofu – I’ve seen some recipes that call for firm or extra firm tofu for a cheese sauce by I’ve found that silken tofu works best. It results in an ULTRA creamy dip plus no pressing of the tofu is required.
  • Lime juice – this is actually optional but I like the little bit of flavor and acidity that it offers.
  • Taco seasoning – I use about 1-2 tablespoons of taco seasoning in this recipe. This is the lazy way of making it but you can obviously make your own taco seasoning as desired (which is a simple mix of spices such as paprika, cumin, onion powder, garlic powder, etc).
  • Nutritional yeast – this helps give the queso a cheesy flavor.
