This is the simplest and best tasting vegan cheese sauce recipe we've found. We got it from our cousin Diana P. who got it from who knows where. We like it best for nachos. It works well for mac'n'cheese as well as enchiladas or any recipe that calls for a cheese sauce.
- Rinse cashews with hot water while combining the remaining ingredients (except chiles) in a blender.
- Add cashews to blender and process on high for 1-2 minutes.
