Cashew Cheese Sauce (Vegan, Gluten Free, Oil Free)

Categories : Condiment

For nacho cheese, add 1 tbsp Cholula or other hot sauce.

For queso dip, add 1 cup salsa and 1 cup vegan taco meat, if desired.

For beer cheese dip, substitute half of the broth for beer (I prefer Shiner Bock) and add 1/8 tsp cayenne, if desired.
