Raw Queso dip

We altered this recipe to make it raw by using fresh tomatoes instead of canned and fresh green chili instead of canned. We will also serve it with raw crackers and raw sweet potatoes.

Healthy Queso Dip (Dairy-free, Soy-free)
makes about 2 1/2 cups
1 cup raw cashews*, soaked for up to 4 hours and drained
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon sea salt
juice of half a lemon (about 1 1/2 tablespoons)
3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
1/8 teaspoon turmeric
1 cup diced tomatoes 
1/2 cup green chiles and onion
*Raw cashews have a very mild and neutral flavor that works well in this recipe. Try to avoid using roasted cashews, which have a stronger cashew flavor.
In a high-speed blender, or food processor, combine the first six ingredients. If more liquid is needed add another 1/4 cup of water.
Blend until a smooth and creamy “cheese” sauce is created. Feel free to add more liquid, if you like, but keep in mind that the diced tomatoes and chiles will also thin-out the sauce a bit.
Transfer the cheese mixture to a large bowl, then add in the diced tomatoes and green chiles. Stir well to combine.
