This week we celebrated Cinco de Mayo! Chowing down on some vegan tacos along with a tasty blood orange margarita. We’ll get to that later, but we really want to talk about Siete Foods Spicy Blanco Cashew Queso, which is vegan
Siete Foods makes tortillas and taco shells, dips, chips, sauces, and seasonings. We had tried the Jalapeno Lime and Nacho tortilla chips before and loved the flavor, so needless to say we were super stoked to try the Spicy Blanco Cashew Queso. We decided to go with this one versus the Mild Nacho Cashew Queso they also offer because we love that spice!
While we were preparing our tacos, Christopher put a few scoops of the queso into a small pot on the stove. On medium low heat, he stirred it until it got hot. He may have tried it with a chip or two also! Once finished, we topped our tacos with the queso.
We couldn’t resist putting some of our favorite hot sauce on it too, Yeah Boy! Made in Seattle, the Habanero hot sauce is FIRE! Don’t worry, they have a Jalapeño sauce as well that’s a little less spicy.
For our tacos we used Trader Joe’s soyrizo! It’s one of our favorite taco meats. Although it comes seasoned, we usually add some more cumin, chili powder, and paprika to give it a kick. And it’s super affordable at $1.99!
Christopher made us Blood Orange Margaritas which were incredible! So good, we think you should try them also. Here’s the recipe which serves 2!
(1) Blood Orange (squeezed & juiced)
(2) Limes (squeezed & juiced)
(1) Lemon (squeezed & juiced)
(3) Shots of Tequila (or more if it’s been that kind of a day!)
(2 Tablespoons) of Agave (adjust to your liking if you like it on the sweet side)
(1/2 cup) Ice
Throw all of it into a shaker, or a large mason jar with a lid if you don’t have a shaker, and give it a good shake. Garnish with salt or a small wedge of Blood Orange for maximum effect. Chances are, you’ll look just as happy as Christopher after you take a sip of that!
Our Outbound Herbivore rating for this tasty VEGAN queso is:
