I can only image the marketing meeting for Velveeta cheese and they were trying to find some way to market probably one of the worst products you can put in your body. Gold color, liquid product----let's put the two together. I have also noticed that this marketing campaign seems to be directed to young men. Probably mothers are too smart to be taken in with this campaign. Here are the ingredients for Velveeta:
whey protein concentrate
milk protein concentrate
Real-Deal Nacho Cheeze1/4 cup raw cashews
1 1/2 cups cold water
2 ounces pimientos (half of a 4 oz. jar)
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 to 1 teaspoon salt
1 (4 ounce) can diced green chilies (optional but SO GOOD!)
1. SOAK CASHEWS IN HOT WATER WHILE COMBINING THE REMAINING INGREDIENTS (EXCEPT CHILES) IN A BLENDER. IF YOU DON’T HAVE A HIGH POWERED BLENDER, SOAK CASHEWS FOR AN HOUR OR TWO IN HOT WATER FIRST. OVERNIGHT IS EVEN BETTER.
2. ADD CASHEWS TO BLENDER AND PROCESS ON HIGH FOR 1-2 MINUTES.
3. COOK IN A SAUCE PAN OVER MEDIUM HEAT, STIRRING CONSTANTLY, UNTIL THICK. ADD CHILES AND SERVE OR USE IN OTHER RECIPES THAT CALL FOR CHEESE SAUCE.
