This Touchdown Spicy Cheese Dip is amazing! The nutritional yeast is the key ingredient here to give it that cheesy flavor. So my recommendation is to get a really good quality nutritional yeast. I prefer Red Star brand. I have tried several other brands and the flavor just doesn’t measure up. Nutritional yeast is rich in vitamins, especially the B-complex vitamins.
I made this “cheese” sauce today and my husband was moaning with each bite. I then took it to the store to test it out on the employees and they too really loved it. This is a keeper!! If you don’t care for heat in your foods, you can easily omit the crushed dried pepper and it will still taste amazing. This sauce pairs wonderfully with flax crackers, corn chips, veggies, on top of zucchini noodles, nachos, as a base to making kale chips, goodness, I could go on and on. I call this Touchdown Spicy Cheese Dip because it reminds me of the perfect cheese dip to serve during the Superbowl and the other 364 days in between.
