Product review: Nacho Mama’s Vodoo Queso »
On my quest to try every vegan queso created, I stumbled across Nacho Mama’s, based in Austin, Texas. Creator and chef Alana was gracious enough to send me two jars of her new Voodoo Queso to sample (and then review)! It’s SO TASTY AND DELICIOUS OMG YOU GUYS, GET SOME. The first jar did not last long—I ate more that half of it, straight from the jar, the night of their arrival. Okay, okay, I let my roommate have a spoonful.
What makes Voodoo Queso different from her other flavors is the addition of black beans. It’s like a spicy, cheesy bean dip. Beware—this dip has kick! Definitely not for the faint of heart. I, however, can handle my spice.
I felt like I should make something with it, not only to prove I have self-control but to show everyone an example of how to use it. So, I made a burrito with black beans—kind of unnecessary, since the dip already contains them, but I was HUNGRY and wanted to make the queso last—Voodoo Queso, and avocado. YUM.
Alana, in an email to me, explained “I use it to replace meat in lots of Mexican dishes. Tacos, Tostadas, Enchiladas…but my favorite, aside from on it’s own with chips, is a layered dip with our regular vegan quesos. Snack heaven!!” Yes and Yes. I wish I could make her product last long enough to make all of those things! It’s JUST TOO TASTY!
Seriously, you guys will probably want to pick up two jars. Prepare to be blown away. And consider this—it’s not only extremely delicious, but has no fat, no gluten, no soy, no nuts, no cholesterol and no allergens!
If you live in Texas or the surrounding Southwest states, chances are you can find this at Whole Foods. For now, the rest of us have to get it from Vegan Essentials! Fine by me—vegans helping vegans, yo.
