Nacho Mom's Ultimate Vegan Queso review

After I read all the positive reviews about this newest vegan phenomenon known as Nacho Mom's Ultimate Vegan Queso I decided to order a jar few days ago. Before I became a vegan I used to enjoy warm cheesy nachos, but since I became a vegan I could not find anything similar so I had to stick with boring tortilla chips and salsa. I bought some vegan nacho cheese dip few years ago, but it was quite weird and it didn't taste cheesy.

When my Nacho Mom's Ultimate Vegan Queso arrived I warmed some up on the stove and poured the queso over warm tortilla chips. OMG! The first bite awoke my memories of real cheesy nachos that I used to love. It was so good I could not believe that something so simple could be so realistic and so good. It was just perfect, not too mild, not too spicy, perfect texture, consistency and flavor.
If I didn't read all the blog reviews, I would be skeptical about this queso, because I would not imagine that tomatoes, nutritional yeast, chillies, flour and spices could create such an amazing cheesy dip.
This queso is not only delicious, but healthy, too. It is vegan, fat-free, soy-free, and the whole jar has only 160 calories.

These nachos were so good. I can see Beavis & Butthead eating them while sitting on their couch saying: "Heh heh heh, yeah, these nachos rule!"


  1. this is a great post, and this is truly awesome stuff. i am 100% with you on this, and i always felt vegan options fell far short. i'm glad we discovered this :)

  2. I KNOW!!! I'm addicted to the stuff. I need to make another order, but VE is out of the new flavor, which I really wanted to try.

  3. Glad you posted this because I probably wouldn't try this if I saw it on the store shelf. I'll have to keep an eye out for it. It'd be perfect for watching football on the weekends!

  4. question can you find this at whole foods?

  5. Desiree, I am not sure, I haven't seen it at my Whole Foods yet. You can check out Vegan Essentials online store, Cosmo's Vegan Shoppe online store, or directly Nacho Mom's Vegan Queso website.
    Also, you can ask your Whole Foods store manager to carry that product. Good luck finding it!

  6. Hi! Nacho Mom here. We've, fortunately exploded onto the scene so we have more retailers every week. We are in the NW region Whole Foods now and will be in the SW region and Southern Pacific region in January, but we have lots of other stores too.

    Find the closest store to you at by clicking on the "where to buy nacho mom's" link and if we have listed our online retailers there as well.

    and yes, Elisabeth is correct...I use Whole Foods' largest distributor, UNFI to distribute my queso so it's easy for the stores to bring in if it's requested as well.

    Thanks all! We work hard to make the most delicious, all-natural vegan queso possible and so kind words make all the hard work so wonderful to do!
