When it comes to dips, I’m all about some queso! Growing up we always would get white queso at various restaurants and it just became such a nostalgic dish. Fast forward to today, there are no vegan queso options and I was excited to explore one. This dish came out so good, I knew we could revisit it and put a fun spin on the flavors.
