  • 1.5 cup potatoes peeled and cubed
  • 2/3 cup carrots peeled and cubed
  • 1/3 cup vegetable stock
  • 3/4 cup plant based milk plain, unsweetened
  • 3 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 3 tsp arrowroot flour or corn starch
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt or more to taste
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper


  • Add potatoes and carrots to a pot of water. Bring to a boil, and let boil for 10 minutes. Strain and add to a blender.
  • Add all remaining ingredients to the blender and blend until super creamy.
  • Pour the nacho cheese into a pot and heat on medium-low heat until it starts to bubble. This will activate the arrowroot powder.
  • Serve warm with your favorite chips!
