Vegan Nacho Sauce

I’ve been promising to post this recipe for ages. It’s one of my kids and friends favorites. We use it to dip veggies and if we have company I’ll also add a bag of tortilla chips to the mix. My rancher son in law didn’t believe me when I told him it was vegan. My middle daughter lives off the stuff and my grandkids love it too. You might not want to tell anyone what’s in it and keep the fact it’s super healthy a secret!
