Easy Vegan Nacho Cheeze/Queso (GF)


Easy Vegan Nacho Cheese/Queso

This is one of my favorite things I have veganized! Nachos are my favorite thing to eat and they need some type of cheesy goodness, right? I don't really enjoy store bought vegan cheeses. So, this recipe doesn't call for any. This nacho cheeze/queso is the shit, and I keep coming up with other things to put it on!

Makes: 1 Cup

Easy Vegan Nacho Queso

Prep time:

Cook time:

  • 2 Tbsp oil or vegan butter
  • 2 Tbsp flour (GF flour works just as well)
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • A few slices of jarred jalapeños
  • 1 Tbsp jalapeño brine (the liquid the jalapeños hang out in), plus more to taste
  • 1 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • A dash of cumin
  • Salt to taste
  • A dash of turmeric powder (optional for color)

  1. Heat the oil or butter in a pot.
  2. Add the flour and whisk, or use a fork to stir for a minute or two.
  3. Slowly pour in the almond milk and whisk continuously until smooth.
  4. When it's smooth and starts to thicken add the jalapeños, jalapeño brine, nutritional yeast, cumin and turmeric (if using).
  5. Cook on low heat for a couple of minutes so the flavors combine.
  6. Turn off the heat and serve immediately or leave on super low heat and stir often. I have refrigerated the left overs and re-heated in a pot while thinning out with almond milk.
