Say it with me: QUESO QUESO QUESO! That’s right. We’re talking cheese dip today. But not just ANY cheese dip.

This creamy cashew queso dip is made with no dairy – NONE. Only simple + good-for-you plant based ingredients that make it vegan, paleo, and whole30 compliant.

I have been wanting to share a recipe for this for awhile because queso is one of those delicious snacks that has the power to make a person SO happy. Amirite?! And I think we can all agree that everybody needs more happy food in their lives.

Maybe it’s because dipping things into creamy, gooey cheesy flavored goodness is close to a spiritual experience, or maybe it’s just because it’s so damn delicious. Either way – I’M IN and I hope you are too!

Because you can have a queso party for one, but it’s a lot more fun if we all show up! 😉

spicy thai marinated skirt steak tacos with avocado {paleo}

It’s the week of Cinco de Mayo which means… TACOS at our house (I bet I’m not the only one 😉!) More specifically we’ve been enjoying these spicy thai marinated skirt steak tacos with avocado. So satisfying and so loaded with delicious flavor!

Spicy thai marinated skirt steak tacos and avocado are super bold and umami packed paleo friendly tacos that are super versatile and easy to make!

Beyond it being Cinco de Mayo, it also happens to be the week of my sweetie’s birthday, and his love of Mexican food and the fact that it falls around Cinco de Mayo usually means mexican themed eats for his party.

So this last weekend while we celebrated there were tacos and a chopped salad with cilantro chipotle ranch. We drank lots of these margaritas from last week’s post, devoured a giant bowl of guacamole and dove head first into some mega spicy aguachile – a dish that I discovered on my recent trip to Mexico. It’s basically a super spicy, cilantro loaded shrimp ceviche. When I tried it for the first time I almost did a backflip! It was so good I’m seriously considering sharing my recipe for it with you here soon.

But I’m totally getting ahead of myself. Back to these spicy thai marinated skirt steak tacos with avocado!
