We love Mexican flavors and spices, however sometimes we find ourselves making the same recipes over and over.  So we mixed up the traditional recipes and recreated some fresh new versions! Give them a try and add them to your favorite Mexican dishes.  We promise you won't be disappointed!

VEGAN QUESO (MEXICAN CHEESE)

Most people say they couldn’t live without cheese and most Mexican dishes feature cheese somewhere in the ingredients. Trust us when we say that you can live without cheese, especially with a replacement as tasty as this Vegan Queso!

  • 1 cup raw cashews (soaked overnight) 
  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast 
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt 
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed 
  • 1 tsp ground cumin 
  • 1/2 tsp ground chili
  • 1 tsp ground paprika 
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 
  • 1/2 - 1 cup hot water

Combine all ingredients (except water) in a high-speed blender or food processor and process until smooth. Gradually add in the hot water while processing to form a smooth mixture. You don't want this to be too runny.

CILANTRO LIME VERDE

Green, spicy, zesty and a whole lot of freshness all made into one healthy lime verde sauce. Use this zesty number to top or dip everything - tacos, salads, veggies, quesadillas!

  • 3 whole jalapeño chilis, deseeded (If you want a spicier sauce, leave the seeds in!)

  • 2 garlic cloves 
  • 1/2 cup organic, natural yogurt
