Dairy Free Queso Recipe (Paleo, Whole30, Keto, + Vegan)

  • Author: Caroline Fausel


2 T olive oil

1/2 onion, chopped

1 4 oz can green chilis

1 c pine nuts

1 c cashews, raw

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp paprika

1 can full fat coconut milk

1 tsp salt

Sliced jalapeños (optional) for serving


  1. Heat the olive oil in a sauce pan on medium high heat- I prefer my cast iron skillet. Add the onion and green chilis, and cook until the onions are translucent and starting to char, about 7 minutes. 
  2. Add the pine nuts, cashews, garlic powder, and paprika. Cook another 5 minutes until the nuts are well toasted and seasoned. 
  3. Add the coconut milk and salt and stir until combined. 
  4. Add all of the ingredients from the pan to a high-powered blender. Blend on high until it is a smooth, queso consistency. Serve in a bowl with your favorite chips, crackers, and/ or veggies- I love Milton’s Crackers


Optional- top with sliced jalapeños for added heat!
