Can’t find a store-bought dairy-free cheese you like? Make your own. Made with simple ingredients you can find anywhere, this dairy-free queso comes together with just a quick blitz in the blender. Drizzle it over tacos, douse it over nachos, swap it with traditional pizza sauce, or toss it with penne for a buffalo-style mac and cheese. Your imagination is your only limitation—this sauce is fantastic on everything!
