Last fall, Primal Kitchen launched their first dips in two ranch varieties. This year, they’re expanding that line to include their first dairy-free cheese alternative. Primal Kitchen Queso is a flavorful, plant-based blend that’s spiked with pureed jalapenos – but don’t worry, it’s still relatively mild.
Primal Kitchen Queso is their Cheesiest Dairy-Free Dip yet
Unlike many paleo dips, this queso is made without tree nuts, coconut, and oil. Primal Kitchen uses pumpkin seed butter for richness. You can read the full ingredient list below, followed by other pertinent details. But be sure to leave your unbiased rating and review below once you buy and try it.

Way too much vinegar
This tastes like a salsa more than a queso. Too much vinegar.
Zesty and salsa-like. Not what I’d call queso, but good for a dip.
Great in recipes
On its own, with tortilla chips, our group found it a little thin and vinegar-y. But we used it inside homemade taquitos – a sweet potato vegan batch and a beef dairy-free batch – and they tasted amazing. Definitely a great cheat for adding flavor to recipes. Just not our favorite as a straight up dip.
