Nacho Mom's Vegan Queso Review

I love Mexican food and we eat it at least once a week.  I will first start off by saying that I do not eat strictly vegan, but I'm always looking for ways to make traditional meals healthier.  When I found out about Nacho Mom's Vegan Queso I really wanted to give it a try.

Nacho Mom's Vegan Queso is not your traditional Mexican cheese sauce.  It is a vegan cheese style sauce.  It's much better for you than your typical cheese sauce.  It's not loaded with tons of fat and salt.  It's a product I feel good about eating.  I will say it doesn't taste exactly like cheese.  Well because it's not.  It has a good flavor though that I enjoyed.  How did I use it?  I topped nacho chips with beans and the Nacho Mom's Vegan Queso.  I then topped it with some hot sauce.  It was really good.  It has chunks of tomatoes in it and it gives it a good flavor and texture.  It also has a nice amount of spice to it that made it very flavorful.

Nacho Mom's Vegan Queso comes in a few varieties.  I sampled the original variety.  This variety is called the Ultimate Vegan Queso.  It was the first vegan queso product to be on the shelves at grocery stores.  Nacho Mom's also makes a Fire Roasted Queso Variety too.  This sounds really tasty too.  This has fire roasted tomatoes in it and it is also spicier.  They also offer a Voodoo Queso that sounds delicious too.  This is a bean and vegan queso dip.  It also has green chili peppers in it and that sounds good too.  What flavor would you want to try and how would you eat it?

Here is the best part. . . . .  The entire jar of this is only 160 calories.  It is also fat free.  While it doesn't taste exactly like cheese to me it is an excellent substitute for calorie packed nacho cheese.  I am always looking for tasty ways to lower calories and eat healthier.  This is one great way to do it!

Where can you buy Nacho Mom's Vegan Queso?  You can find retailers in your area or an online retailer here.  I am lucky enough that it is available at my local Whole Foods.
