Core and Rind vegan cashew cheese sauce cowgirl queso recipe on SwitchGrocery Canada

Dairy Free Cowgirl Queso

One of the top 5 ultimate summer foods is dip (yes, right alongside ice cream and bbq!). Whether you’re on a beach day trip, hiking, road tripping, or camping overnight, dips are easy to pack, easy to share (if you can resist keeping this dish all to yourself!), and even easier to eat. It goes with almost any food or snack!

The best dip, hands down, has to be QUESO! Nothing brings people together quite like melted cheese. Thanks to Core and Rind's Sharpy & Tangy Cashew Cheesy Sauce, this Cowgirl Queso dip is fully plant-based and vegan, sugar-free, and keto-friendly. Not to mention, it won't even take you half and hour to make. Less time in the kitchen, more time basking in the summer sun! This dip will bring out your wild side just in time for patio and picnic season.
