Have you tried the Nacho Mom's vegan queso?  It's really good!  It's locally made and you can get it at Wheatsville.  

Just make sure to heat it up first! excited

Jacob's right.  It's much better heated up!  Now I like it.

I'm excited to try this. It's reportedly low in calories too. CHEEZE FEST!
I kind of secretly want to make an ice cream sundae out of it. What would you say to applepie and cheeze a la mode?

We beam! We beam!
Or as Sally Fields once said:
"You like me! You really like me!!"

It's like a momma who worked endless hours to raise a great child, just had someone mention people were talking about her amazing kid online.

awwww, trust me, Nacho Mom's Ultimate Vegan Queso is like WD-40. Not in taste, God forbid...but because there were about 39 batches before it that I didn't like enough to bottle and they got dumped or eaten under duress.

Heck, in all honesty there were WAY more than 39 until this one made the cut and rays of light shone upward from the pot indicating it was "the one". :-)

We are spreading fast around the world and I feel so thrilled that all the hours and work paid off...(you have no idea!)

Yes, you can actually eat the ENTIRE jar for only 160 calories and NO fat. True dat. And it's all natural and good for ya to boot.

(Or 10 calories per serving...but why do that when you can eat the whole dang jar?)

us: www.nachomoms.com or www.veganqueso.com will take you to our site and where to find us in stores and online.

Twitter: @veganqueso

p.s. For those who didn't get my sense of humor in the name...I'm not a mom (except to a whole gang of gifted and talented pets)
It's 'cause it's notchyo mom's queso...it's better.


Now y'all go eat ya some queso.

Yes, Amelia,  you're definitely on to something with the apple pie and cheeze a la mode sundae, though maybe Nacho Mom's can come out with a cheddar version w/o the tomatoes and chiles?  Or it could just be a texmex apple pie a la mode.  And while on the topic of new flavors -- any chance at a white queso?

See, the thing is even back in the day when I ate cheese (I was a vegetarian for a bazillion years before I was a vegan and I can tell you, I ate my share of cheese. Bad. Very bad.) I never did understand the marriage of cheddar and apple pie. So yeah, no, not so much.

Funny you mention white queso. I have actually been playing with that one. This is not an easy thing for a vegan queso. But I still am on the quest. I have two groceries that I am developing a few products for that will spill out into other places and I WANT a white queso to be among them, dang it.

So if anyone is up late drinking one night and mixes really random items together and it tastes like white queso...

...call me.

p.s. I do not include vegan vanilla icecream to be even close to white queso. Let's just save a phone call on that one, m'kay? :-)

Hold up, it was Forumla 409 that they say had 408 formulas that they worked on before they reached Formula 409, right?

Not WD-40.

My bad.
I'm not good at chemical cleaner trivia since I am not fond of them.

You get my point.

I'm also a fan.  It's hard to believe it's so low in calories.  Very good stuff.

Amelia, that sounds weirdly good. Maybe that can be a special at Sweet Ritual. I'll be your taste tester.

And I really love the name and label. There was a Mexican fast food eatery in Richmond, VA called Nacho Mamma's. I like puns. And it tastes good too!

Aw thanks. Carrie, (and everyone else!) that's funny that you say that because that was the first name I tried for and found out it was taken by that restaurant so I know about them! There is also a Nacho Daddy's. But I was a bit surprised I nabbed the Nacho Mom's trademark.

I am glad you liked my label!  My label is taken from a tattoo I saw that said "MOM", of course...coinciding with the name Nacho Mom's. But I changed it a great deal, including, obviously, the pepper, rather than a sword, through the heart. I HAD to have a label that looked like a tattoo.  We vegans aren't typically conformists.

But most importantly, I am so very, very glad you guys like it.  I'm brainstorming ways to bring some for everyone to try at the next meet-up.  Bringing buckets of it is the easy part; keeping it hot without electricity...hmmm.....

Very cool of you, Alana happy

Does anybody remember if there are any outlet boxes at Pease Park? For some reason I'm thinking I remember there being one by one of the little buildings, like a bathroom place or something...hmm....

Oh good!
I can get extension cords and I have a table and all else I need for sample giveaways.  If not, I can see if a chafing dish will work but I haven't ever tried that with the queso and it would probably take quite a while to heat up that way.

Unless you mean sticking me in the bathroom, in which case we'll just go with the chafing dish.

When I called the Parks Department, I was told that electricity is available there, so I requested it at the time I made the reservation. And their webpage says it's available (http://www.ci.austin.tx.us/parks/picnic.htm). But I haven't actually gone to look for it. Pease Park is kinda long, so I think it'd be stupid for the electricity to not be at the south end where all the picnic tables are. But yeah, bringing a bunch of long extension cords might do the trick.

Most catering places just have metal containers that are elevated and they put burners under them.  No electricity needed.  Gas-fueled I think.

Thank you!

I did order a big chafing dish today just in case.  I have never tested the queso in it though but we are gonna cross our fingers and hope it heats evenly and doesn't stick to the bottom and the steam from the water bath below the pan doesn't do anything funky.

If the queso doesn't taste as good as I want it to, I'm totally blaming all the above factors.

Kidding.

But I'm ready to go now sans electricity and also have outdoor cords & a crockpot if we DO have electricity.

I'll be like your gramma who arrives at an event with anything you MIGHT need in her purse...gum, mints, kleenex, throat lozenges...

I'm just not as old. And my stuff only pertains to queso handouts.
