Vegan Nacho Sauce

February 10, 2018 2:28 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

There are so many appetizers, hor d’ouevres, dips and snacks out there for parties, what do you bring when you were invited over for a weekend with friends? Well, I thought I would make nacho cheese sauce, who doesn’t like a good, creamy and gooey nacho cheese sauce?  My partner is vegan so I made sure to make a vegan version so we all can enjoy this little creamy nacho sauce fiesta with crunchy tortilla chips and it turned out so good.  This nut free and dairy free version of a party classic is so good that true believers of dairy would be fooled, yes, it’s that good…


2 tablespoons vegan margarine

2 tablespoons grated onion

2 teaspoons chopped garlic

2 ½ tablespoons tapioca flour

2 cups of plant based milk

1/2 teaspoon cayenne

½ teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon paprika

½ teaspoon cumin

½ cup nutritional yeast

3 ½ cups of shredded vegan cheese or 12 ounces

10 slices bottled jalapenos (nacho slices) chopped

2 tablespoon brine, from the bottled jalapeno slices

1/2 cup of your favorite salsa


In a sauce pan over medium heat, melt the margarine and cook the onion and garlic for about 5 minutes, add the tapioca flower and whisk vigorously until well combined and cook until it thickens, add the plant based milk and whisk until mixed well

Whisk in the cayenne, salt, paprika, cumin and nutritional yeast and mix well

Add the cheese and mix well, followed by the chopped jalapeno slices, brine and salsa, mix well and cook until all melted through, whisking occasionally for about 10 to 12 minutes.

Serve right away with your favorite chips
