No dairy needed in this Creamy Nut-Free Vegan Nacho Cheese Sauce! Low-fat, gluten-free, paleo, and allergy-free; everyone can enjoy some healthy dipping! A tummy-friendly recipe, made quick & easy in a blender. You’ll be using this queso sauce for more than just chips!
We are about to get saucy up in here! Creamy, luscious, and a whole lot of cheesiness! What you won’t see is any dairy or nuts. This vegan nacho cheese sauce is super healthy, low-fat, and the perfect substitute to fool any dairy eater! So many vegan cheese sauces use nuts. Not so food allergy friendly, plus it’s super high fat and calories for something like a simple dip. When you dip…you want to dip A LOT (not some small tablespoon serving!)
You know I always have you back in these food-crisis situations. Everyone should be able to enjoy some nacho cheese sauce, aka queso. From traditional nachos to burrito bowls, and tacos. It’s not only a staple Mexican condiment, but a good ‘ole essential party party dip! Corn chips were made for dipping into some cheese sauce, regardless of them being nachos or not.
The cheese sauce/dip I grew up with was THIS bad boy. I think I’ve mentioned these childhood memories before, but I get all nostalgic thinking about this queso dip anytime I see it in the store. My dad and I used to LOVE eating it. It was “our thing” (my mom and brother never cared for it). When my dad was finally home from work on the weekends and liked to chill out in-front of the TV, sometimes I’d find him with a jar of that queso and some corn chips. I’d snuggle up next to him, sitting on the floor in-front of the coach, and join in on the dipping and munching.
The thing about that store-bought queso cheese dip was that is had zero-health benefit whatsoever. Just a bunch of processed liquid “cheese”. So what’s a girl to do in the present day? Make her own! And while she’s at it, make it totally vegan, paleo, gluten-free, and allergy-free. Right in this snazzy new blender from GoWISE so there’s no fuss involved and only one blender to clean.
You guys know I’m the least likely person to get excited about a blender, but wait! This is NOT you typical blender in any way, shape, or form. By its official name, the “GoWISE USA High Performance Professional Heating Blender (Premiere)”, this blender actually heats things (i.e. it cooks stuff!). Say you want to make a blended soup, but don’t want to heat it in a pot, well now you don’t have to! Say you want to make queso dip and have it hot and ready right on the spot, well my friends, you can do just that!
My nacho cheese dip is POTATO based and that means you’d typically have to boil the potatoes separately before blending them up. Not any more! All you have to do is chop them up throw them in the blender with some non-dairy milk and let the magic heating blender do its cooking magic. In the end you have nice hot, steamy, creamy, nacho cheese sauce ready to devour! Let me show you just how easy it is…
Creamy Nut-Free Vegan Nacho Cheese Sauce
- Place the cubed potatoes and milk in the GoWISE blender and allow the contents to heat on the "soup" function for 5 minutes.
- Then press the "chop" function, while the contents are still heating, to pulse the mixture until the potatoes have mostly blended up into the milk.
- Turn the blender off and add the rest of the cheese sauce ingredients to the blender.
- Use the "pulse" function and allow the sauce to blend together for 20 seconds.
- Pour into a bowl to serve or allow to cool and store in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days.
Isn’t that awesome? I had previously been making this vegan nacho cheese sauce the old boring way, but then this magic blender graced the presence of the Strength and Sunshine kitchen and nothing will ever be the same. You can cooking sliced up meat in this blender if you’re making some “meaty” soup. It’s that powerful! Lucky for you, this professional blender is pretty affordable in terms of blenders and you guys get a special 15% off discount with my code GWStrength and free shipping on Amazon!
So tell me:
+ What’s your favorite dip for chips?
