4. As the motor runs slowly drizzle the oil into the sauce until well incorporated.

5. Taste and season with more salt and pepper if needed. Add a little more nutritional yeast if you'd like it to taste cheesier.

7. Serve with tortilla chips.


Try adding diced jalapenos and/or extra cayenne for a little more kick.
