Navy Bean Queso Dip with Fresh Cilantro

 I absolutely love this dip! This queso was a labor of love to get just the right consistency and flavor I was looking for. When I want to make nachos, or enchiladas, this is my go to recipe.  This easy homemade “cheese” dip is wonderful right off the stove. 

Yield: 2 cups 

1 15 oz. can of navy beans

1/2 lemon; juiced

3 scallions, chopped

1/2 cup cilantro, minced

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. cumin

1/4 cup salsa; any kind you like

1/2 cup nutritional yeast

1/2 tsp. chili powder

1/2 tsp. onion powder


In a medium pot, heat the beans in water 5-10 minutes until soft.

Drain 2/3 of the water and mash beans with a potato masher, or use an immersion blender.

Add in the lemon juice, cilantro, scallions, salsa, garlic powder, cumin, nutritional yeast, chili powder, and onion powder. Stir well and cook 5-10 minutes until sauce is nice and thick and serve.
