Field Roast, the company behind Chao Creamery, has kept this product under the radar since its release. But we still managed to find Chao Plant-Based Queso at our local natural food store. It’s a cheesy sauce, meant to be heated and used for dipping, or drizzled on nachos, tacos, burritos, you name it!
Get Your Dairy-Free Nachos Ready for Chao Plant-Based Queso
This dip is sold refrigerated, but it does need to be warmed for dipping and drizzling. Unfortunately, it “sets up” a bit too much when cold. Once heated, it boasts a melty consistency, bright orange hue, relatively mild heat, and is liberally dotted with diced bell peppers for added appeal.
