This Vegan Queso Dip will be a hit on your next party! Top it with scallions, cilantro, jalapeño peppers and fresh tomatoes.


  • 1 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk (here we used almond-coconut)
  • 1 tbsp corn starch
  • 18oz pack GO VEGGIE Cheddar Shreds
  • 1/41/2 tsp salt (to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • Pinch of cayenne
  • 1 small vine ripe tomato, seeds removed (to prevent the sauce from getting watery) and diced small
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, diced small
  • 1 scallion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • Garnish (optional)
  • Sliced scallions
  • Diced tomatoes
  • Diced jalapeño peppers
  • Chopped cilantro


  1. Combine milk and corn starch in a small bowl and whisk well to break down any lumps. Pour over a medium size saucepan and cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes, whisking often, until it starts to thicken
  2. Add Cheddar Shreds, reduce heat to medium low and continue cooking for another 5 minutes whisk well so the cheese melts completely
  3. Remove from heat, add tomatoes, jalapeños, scallion and cilantro and mix well. Garnish with sliced scallion, diced tomatoes and jalapeños and chopped cilantro
