Absolutely Amazing No Queso Sauce

Prep: 3 minutes Cook: 5 minutes

Serves:Makes 2 cups

By Tiffany Hobson


  • 1/4 cup raw cashews
  • 1 cup roasted butternut squash
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 8 ounces pimientos
  • 3 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp salt


Place all the ingredients in a blender and process until completely smooth. If you own a Vitamix, this process will take 3 minutes; if you own a regular blender, the process will take about 5 to 6 minutes.

Pour the mixture into a saucepan and cook at medium heat until the sauce thickens, about 5 minutes.

Note: This cheese sauce is great on just about anything! Pour it over a baked potato, have it on top of your favorite chili, or over some baked tortilla chips. Instead of using 8 ounces of pimientos, try using 4 ounces and add in some chopped jalapenos or habaneros if you like it hot and spicy.
