Introducing a tasty new sauce for your next taco night or burrito bowl lunch: creamy cashew jalapeño sauce! This subtly spicy, savory sauce comes together with just 6 ingredients and 5 minutes active prep time.
Inspired by a restaurant called Harlow, it’s a versatile flavor addition to bowls (recipe coming soon), quesadillas, and so much more! Get ready to level up your next meal. Let us show you how it’s done!
Grab these 6 ingredients and it’s creamy jalapeño sauce time: cashews, jalapeño, nutritional yeast, lime, garlic, and salt!
Soak the cashews to soften and ensure a milder flavor, then add the soaked cashews to a blender. Blend them up with the remaining ingredients plus water. And that’s it!
We hope you LOVE this cashew jalapeño sauce! It’s:
& SO delicious!
We love it on everything from tortilla chips to bowls (recipe coming soon — sneak peek below!), quesadillas, salads, enchiladas, and tacos. It adds a cheesy richness that really brings a meal together!
