Soak the cashews using the counter, stove or microwave method (see notes below)
After cashews are done soaking, drain off and discard the water from soaking.
Add all the ingredients to a high speed blender and blend on high 1 minute until smooth.
Store in the fridge for up to 4 days.
How to soak cashews:
Microwave: Use a very large microwave safe container (typically I use a quart size mason jar), add just enough filtered water to cover the cashews. Microwave high for 3 minutes, allow to cool slightly. Drain off soaking water before use.
Stove: Add filtered water to a small pot on the stove and add the cashews. Allow the water to come to a boil. Boil 2 minutes. Allow to cool slightly before draining off cooking water.
Countertop: cover the raw cashews with filtered water. Allow to sit at room temperature for 6-8 hours. Drain off soaking water.
Storage:Fridge: Sealed container up to 4 days. Freezer: Air tight freezer safe container up to 2 months.To reheat: Add boiling hot water to cashew queso to help heat it up. It will thicken in the fridge and will clump together if heated in the microwave without added water. Additional Mix-Ins:
Sliced jalapenos (fresh or jarred)
Green Chili Peppers (canned)
Chipotle Chili in Adobo (from a can)
Chipotle Chili Powder
Roasted red peppers
