I have no less than six recipes for "cheese" in my cookbook. 

Drum roll please: nacho cheese, cheddar cheese, quick queso, mexican queso, tofu basil ricotta and melty pizza cheese.

All of them are completely fat-free (well, except the ricotta which has a smidgen of fat naturally from the tofu) and they're instant to make!

Today I'm blogging about the Mexican Dip because it's a secret gem in my cookbook--meaning, it will probably get overlooked because of it's unoriginal name... but names are deceiving! This dip is unbelievable!

It cheesey--except it doesn't have an ounce vegan "cheese" in it. It's also allergen-free: no gluten, no soy, no corn and no sugar! (It's made from beans!)

Although I designed this dip with parties in mind -- it whips up so ...
