    Vittoria2008's Note:

    This vegan queso is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! I've only been a vegan for about two months and I'm having major cheese withdrawals, but this queso is the perfect fix! It can be used as a dip, spread, or sauce. Let me know what you think!

      I made an account here at just to review this delicious queso! :)
      It is absolutely the solution to my cheese cravings as a vegan. It's salty and cheesy and creamy... it really does taste like a gourmet queso. Y.U.M! Oh my goodness, so quick and easy and delicious. I was skeptical that it would taste like cheese, but it does. Doing a happy dance over here!

      The only thing you should know is that the color is not "orangey" like other quesos and cheeses. Instead, it's a darker orange like the color of pumpkin pie. This is because of the paprika you add. Don't let that scare you, though, it is DELICIOUS!

      This is a great dip! Very creamy and cheasy. Doesn't taste like nutritional yeast at all. It tastes like cheese! Mine was waaay more red-orange than yellow. I used 1 cup salsa and it turned out fine. I whisked for 3-4 mins before adding the salsa and margarine and it immediately thickened up.

      If I could give this a million stars, I would. THAT is how much I loved this queso! Maybe I was just reeeeeally in the mood for queso and this was the first thing that totally satisfied that need without major guilt :) I am a new vegetarian, but try out vegan recipes as well and THIS was so good! I can't stop thinking about it. I wish I would have brought it to work with me. Thank you for this recipe!!
