Preparation

For the Salsa:

  1. Add all of your ingredients to a mixing bowl.
  2. Mix them together.

For the Guac:

  1. Put all ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Mix it together (you can leave it chunky or mix it some more to make it smooth).
  3. Eat it with chips, on tacos, in a burrito, or right out of the bowl. This is a judgement free zone.

For the Nacho Cheese:

  1. Once your cashews are either boiled, or soaked, drain them and put all of your ingredients in a high speed blender.
  2. If you’re one of those people who has the foresight to soak their cashews… one, you’re my personal hero and two, you can heat it up in a pan after. Make sure to taste and salt and pepper or the other spices if you’d like more of them before adding them to a pan so that they blend well together.
