Ingredients

Pumpkin Queso Dip:
  • 15 ounce butternut squash (about 2 cups)
  • 1 tablespoon white miso paste
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 cup soaked unsalted cashews (I only soaked them for about 10 minutes, but soaking them longer will make it easier for your blender.)

  • 1 teaspoon paprika powder
  •  Black pepper
  •  Salt
  •  Red pepper flakes
Nacho Bowl:
  • 2 green jalapeños, cut into rings

Preparation

  1. Soak the cashews in water. Bring a medium pot of water to boil. Cut the butternut squash into small pieces and cook them for about 10 minutes or until they are really soft.
  2. Drain both the butternut squash and the cashews and place them into a blender. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth.
  3. Place the nachos into a big bowl and add the jalapeños, red onion, red pointed pepper, black olives, guacamole, tomato salsa, and tomatoes. In a small pan, heat the pumpkin cheese sauce until it becomes really thick and creamy.
  4. Pour it onto the nachos until they're nicely covered. Serve immediately.
