Chilli Cheese Dip

This recipe from Delish Knowledge is so delicious - hubby loved it and he normally hates anything involving nutritional yeast! I couldn't get it as smooth as it looked on the original recipe but it was still yum.

Chilli Cheese Dip


1½ cups cashews, soaked for at least an 1 hour, drained
1 orange bell pepper, roughly chopped
1 cup unsweetened dairy-free milk (I used soy)
2 tsp. chili powder
¼ cup nutritional yeast
¼ cup minced onion
2 tbsp. taco seasoning
2 15 oz. cans, black beans
12 oz. fresh salsa


Drain and rinse the soaked cashews.
Place the cashews, orange bell pepper, milk, chili powder, and nutritional yeast in a high powered blender (I use my Blend-Tec). Puree until thick and creamy, about 3-4 minutes.
In a large saucepan, add the minced onion, taco seasoning, black beans and fresh salsa over medium heat. Stir constantly until heated through, about 7-8 minutes.
Add in the cheese sauce and stir to combine.
Season to taste with salt/pepper if needed.
Garnish as desired and serve.
