Chef Sol’s Nacho “Cheese” Queso Dip



  1. Warm a medium sauce pan on low to medium heat.
  2. When hot, add Earth Balance butter, onion and jalapeño and sauté until onions are soft.
  3. Then add cubes of cheese and let it begin to melt.
  4. Add  the rest of the ingredients, turn down to low and stir slowly allowing “cheese” to melt (not stick) into a nice cheese sauce consistency.
  5. Remove from heat and serve over your favorite nachos, fresh veggies or even a baked potato!

Serve over your favorite organic blue corn chips with sliced “heirloom” carrots and sweet red pepper for dipping
