Vegan Hatch Chile Cheese

Sponsored by The Hatch Chile Store

I love hatch chile peppers and enjoy cooking with them so when The hatch chile store asked me to come up with a recipe I was really excited. I have several recipes that I will be posting in the upcoming weeks. I had to share this cheese first. It turned out fantastic and it couldn’t be easier to make. The best part is that it melts! I can not wait to use it on my Black Bean Raspberry Chipotle Dip. I think that it will be a perfect pairing.

Yes there are times that chocolate is unnecessary. Continue reading →

Loaded {vegan} Nachos with Sweet Potato Queso

Loaded Vegan Nachos

My little one has had the same favorite meal for years now so it came as no surprise that for her 4th birthday she wanted nachos for dinner. Her two requests: nachos and she wanted to eat it on princess paper plates. We rarely use paper plates so to her they are super special. I can’t believe that my baby is already four, time really does seem to go by way too quickly. She is so independent Continue reading →
