This cool, creamy and easy dressing is seriously next level! I have been making it for years nowย and it’s a must have on just about any Mexican style dish in my home.

Just a handful of ingredients, thick and indulgent but contains zeroย oil, soy, gluten or dairy. Drizzle it on anythingย from tacos, burrito bowls, salads or perhaps just a plain old bowl of black beans. Yep, I’ve definitely done it.
