Ingredients

For the chili cheese dogs

  • pretzel buns
  • vegan hot dogs
  • 1 can of vegan chili (we used Amy’s!)
  • 2 jalapeños, sliced thin
  • 1/2 large white onion, diced
  • cilantro, for garnish

For the cashew queso

  • 1 cup raw unsalted cashews
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika

Instructions

For the queso

  1. Soak the cashews for 15 minutes in boiling water until soft.
  2. While the cashews soak, in a small bowl stir together all the spices and salt.
  3. Drain cashews and transfer to a blender or food processor. Add in the spices, nutritional yeast and almond milk. Blend until creamy.
  4. Once ready to serve, place in a microwave-safe bowl and heat for 15-30 seconds. Mixture will thicken even more after being heated.

For the hot dogs:

  1. Prepare vegan hot dogs according to the directions on the package.
  2. While the hot dogs are cooking, slice open the pretzels buns and heat a greased pan over medium heat. Lightly toast the buns.
  3. Heat the chili up in a microwave safe bowl. While the chili is warming up, slice the jalapeños into thin slices and peel and chop the onion to desired size.
  4. Place the hot dogs in the toasted buns. Spoon the chili over the hot dogs and top with jalapeño slices and onions. Smother in cashew queso and enjoy the game.
