Dairy-free and less indulgent than what smothers traditional nachos, this spicy vegan cheese sauce is just as creamy and addictive.


  • 1 teaspoon non-dairy margarine

  • 1 teaspoon sweet rice flour or all-purpose flour

  • 1/4 cup Frontier Co-op Nutritional Yeast Powder

  • 3/4 cup unsweetened, non-flavored almond milk

  • 1/2 teaspoon Frontier Co-op Garlic Powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon Frontier Co-op Ground Mustard Seed

  • 1/4 teaspoon Frontier Co-op Onion Powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon Frontier Co-op Black Pepper

  • 1/4 teaspoon Frontier Co-op Chili Powder


    1. In a saucepan, melt the margarine over medium-low heat. Whisk in the rice flour and cook for 1 minute. Next, add in nutritional yeast and 1/4 cup of the milk. Whisk until the mixture is smooth.

    2. Pour in remaining 1/2 cup milk and add the spice. Continue to whisk and cook over medium-low heat until the cheese sauce has thickened, 4 to 5 minutes. Taste and adjust seasonings as desired.

    3. To make nachos, drizzle over a bowl of tortilla chips and add your favorite toppings such as black beans, diced tomatoes, avocado, salsa, cilantro, bell pepper and onions.
