How To Make Vegan Queso Dip

For this vegan-friendly dip, you need the following plant-based ingredients:

  • 1 8-ounce package vegan cream cheese
  • 1 10-ounce can mild green chili enchilada sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

Take the vegan cream cheese and place it in a microwavable bowl and microwave on HIGH for 20 seconds.  Take it out and stir.  Repeat until it is smooth and stirs easily.

Next, pour the green chili enchilada sauce over the cream cheese.  Stir it to combine and then stir in the nutritional yeast flakes, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.  

Let it cool for about 5 minutes.  You can eat it immediately or cover and refrigerate for up to 7 days.  When ready to serve, heat it in the microwave in 30-second intervals until it is heated through.
