Rotel vegan-cheese dip

Superbowl sunday junk food:

vegan nachos

We were craving a rotely, cheesy, gooey dip. This one was surprisingly easy --- and A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.

Cholesterol-free, low-fat, spicy and absolutely delicious. We actually ate this entire bowl by ourselves!


Follow Your Heart cheddar
Nutritional yeast
Almond mylk (original unsweetened, just 30 calories per cup)

Basically I put a rotel can into the pot on the stove. Add about 3/4 c nutritional yeast. Mix.

Meanwhile, dice your Follow Your Heart cheddar. Smaller pieces melt faster. Now, add them bit by bit to your dip. Keep stirring, allowing everything to melt.

Here is where you make it how you want:

You want it gooey and moist, so begin adding almond mylk (or soy or rice mylk) to keep it wet and melting. ** Did you add too much mylk? Just boil a while and it'll melt off. Or add some more nutritional yeast. ** Dip too thick? Add a little more mylk at a time.

Salt to taste.

Enjoy with chips and veggies! Also great in burritos.

If you're going to enjoy comfort food -- you might as well make it as healthy as you can. This is full of b-vitamins (from the nutritional yeast) and no saturated fat (because this isn't made from anybody's breast milk.)

I promise you will LOVE this.
