So this is a sauce that my family and I use very, very frequently. It is something we can always turn to when we are all busy that day. We plan ahead, make a pot of beans the night before, then make this sauce nice and quick, then through together some burritos or tacos with avocado and such. Health and taste are not far out of reach we just need to apply ourselves a bit. So go out a make this sauce this week, because it really is pretty freakin awesome! P.S. It's not that spicy, unless you want it to be.

-1/2 c Cashews
-1/2 c Water
-1/2 tsp & 1/4 tsp Chipotle Powder (more or less for desired spiciness) or 1/2 Jalapeño
-2 tbsp Nutritional Yeast
-1/2 Lime juice
-1 tsp Salt

1.) Soak Cashews in freshly boiled water for about 10-15 minutes to soften.
2.) Mix all ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth. Add water for desired consistency.

For the everyday topping of, well, anything!
