If you like cheesy, spicy, dippy, soy-free, nut-free, fat-free food, then I've got just the thing for you: vegan queso by Food For Lovers. This delicious Velveeta-like "cheese dip" was created by two young lovebirds (thus the name - they're insanely adorable). Crystal is Mexican and missed her home country's dishes when she went vegan, so naturally she decided to perfect a vegan queso recipe. And perfect it she did! This healthier queso is so yummy most people gobble down a whole jar up in less than a day (guilty as charged)!
 

While it's currently not gluten-free or organic, they're working on changing that (and once they do this queso will be in my kitchen 24/7!). One thing I love is that it's packaged in a glass jar (no plastic!) and they get all of their ingredients local to their home in Austin, TX. The ingredients are pretty basic - mainly tomatoes, green chili peppers, flour, nutritional yeast, salt, vinegar, mustard, and spices. They totally nailed the consistency - it is perfect for dipping chips*.

 
I had the opportunity to meet creator's Crystal & Chris Tate at Natural Products Expo West several months ago - I apologize for making you wait so long for this. So with no further ado, here's the story behind Food for Lovers! And if you don't want to take my word for how fabulous this queso is, there are a bunch of testimonials in the video as well - prepare to be brainwashed into ordering it online before the video even ends!



*If you're looking for a corn-free, gluten-free tortilla-like chip, try Beanitos - I'm addicted to them right now!
