The first time Patriots won the Superbowl I was a freshman in college living in Boston. I was in a new country and not overly familiar with Football. My high school had a football team, but it wasn’t a big deal. The sport at my high school was definitely rowing. A lot of the guys on the football team were the heavyweight rowers from our high school team not fast enough for the fall city wide team.
I was shocked by the reaction. After the game finished the students took to the streets in celebration. Celebration turned into rowdiness. Next thing we knew, we watched students flipping cars right outside our dorm room windows. Since then Northeastern has had to implement a no outdoor celebrations policy.
As we know, indoor celebrations require great food to keep the party going. So I decided to make my own nacho sauce.
I suppose I could call it a vegan nacho cheese sauce or a nacho cheeze sauce. But I didn’t feel like it didn’t taste enough like cheese for me to apply that name to it.
By the way, if you are wondering where I got the pretty green chips. They are by Late July Organics. The flavor I used (and loved) is Mild Green Mojito. Visit their website to find where you can purchase their products locally.

I found the whole can of jalapeno wheels to be a little spicy for me, so please adjust according to taste.
I’m submitting this recipe to Ricki’s Wellness Weekend.
I hope everyone enjoys the superbowl tomorrow. One East Coast city is going to be very very happy after the game. If I watch, it will be for the commercials, and the food.
