This unique dip is far more nutritious than your average queso recipe. It also has a different texture and taste, but it's full flavored, delicious, and addictive!
Recipe type: Appetiser
Cuisine: Mexican
Serves: 6 servings
  • 1½ cups full-fat coconut milk (just a little less than 1 can - shaken)
  • 1 cup cooked sweet potato (easiest route is to bake in the microwave; see Alisa's Notes in post above)
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes (see Alisa's Notes in post above)
  • 2 teaspoons dairy-free taco seasoning (try this blend)
  • 1 large clove garlic, peeled
  • 1 teaspoon yellow or Dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt, or to taste (see Alisa's Notes above)
  • 1 cup salsa or pico de gallo
  • Minced jalapeno peppers, for garnish (optional)
  • Tortilla chips, for serving
  1. Place the coconut milk, sweet potato, nutritional yeast, taco seasoning, garlic, mustard and salt in your blender and puree until smooth.
  2. Pour the mixture into a saucepan and heat over medium heat until it begins to bubble.
  3. Remove from the heat and stir in the salsa. Taste test, and adjust seasonings if desired.
