PRODUCT REVIEW: Teese Vegan Cheese Nacho & Creamy Cheddar Flavors

dairy_free_nachos

A few weeks ago when I was at the Gluten and Allergen Free Expo in Chicago, I came across a table serving dairy-free nachos. The brand was called Teese. I HAD to try it. I'm lactose intolerant and I miss being able to eat cheese without feeling guilty and suffering possible digestive pain and discomfort. I loved it! So, I picked up a tube of nacho cheese:

And I in no way could resist the creamy cheddar which read that it was perfect for macaroni and cheese:

Teese is great because it contains no:

  • dairy
  • peanuts
  • soy
  • gluten
  • tree nuts
  • palm oil
  • wheat

First, my hunny and I made the nachos.

He chopped (with devil horns, of course). Red bell peppers are hardcore, lemme tell ya:

And I took care of the beef and cheese. We wanted to do it up and make deluxe nachos, yum yum.

All you need to do is heat the cheese on the stove:

And it's ready!

Yup. That simple.

So, we assembled our masterpiece:

AND TA-DAAAA!

SO AMAZING.

I loved every second of it. It was creamy, had that zing that nacho cheese needs and I must say I was very happy with it overall.

Next was the mac and cheese. Well, I had to spruce that up so I added some broccoli and bacon.

This was a special occasion after all! Like I said... I miss my cheese :-(

Unfortunately, this creamy cheddar didn't do it for me. It had this strange taste to it that I just couldn't put my finger on. I've heard that their mozzarella is REALLY good, though, so I'm going to check it out for sure.
