Easy Vegan Nacho Cheese

This plant based vegan nacho cheese recipe only takes minutes to make, it’s really tasty and it only requires ingredients that most likely already have on hand.

You can make this as spicy or mild as you like depending on the type of salsa you use. A mild salsa will make a mild nacho cheese sauce and a hot salsa will make it hotter.

I use this as a dip, drizzle it on steamed or roasted veggies and I even use it as a spread. The possibilities are endless here. Enjoy!
