Spicy Vegan Queso Dip

Serves: 8

Prep Time: 10 minutes


This spicy vegan queso dip comes with a kick. It pairs perfectly with chips or veggies plus it can be a sauce for tacos, vegan enchiladas, potatoes and other starchy faves.

If spicy isn't your jam, then leave out the jalapeno and only use half the amount of the taco seasoning. It's just as good but a bit gentler on the palate.

This dip is very easy to execute, which makes it one of my most popular go-to snack recipes. It's also a healthier alternative to traditional queso. Healthy Bonus: there's no oil in this recipe (and it's so delicious you don't miss it.) Game on!


  • 1 can (12-15 oz), Cannellini beans (use the water in the can too)

  • 1 small can (2.25 oz), mild green chilies
