Friends, if there’s’ one thing I keep stocked in my fridge, it’s this Vegan Chipotle Cheese Sauce. It is the perfect sauce for almost EVERYTHING!! Having Mexican food? Add some Chipotle Cheese Sauce! Buddha bowl? Add Chipotle Cheese Sauce! Homemade fries? Dunk them in Chipotle Cheese Sauce!

This sauce is a modification of my vegan cheese sauce used for mac & cheese or my queso dip.

The best part, it’s super fast and super easy to whip up a batch and it keeps in the fridge for about 1-1 1/2 weeks. As if you’ll have any left after a week!
