Queso Recipe | Yeah, It's VEGAN

Like most people, I'm always looking for ways to save time and money when it comes to meal planning and cooking....especially time. 

I made this macaroni & cheese recipe the other night and decided to double the cheese sauce to save for nachos.

I placed the leftover cheese in a container and warmed it on the stove the next day with cumin, chili powder and a little more salt & garlic.

Since the original cheese sauce called for a lot more ingredients than what I wanted to use next time, I spent the last couple of days modifying it.

The result: A simple & delicious queso that your family will not question. Guaranteed!
