Jalapeno Sweet Potato Cheese


This DELICIOUS sauce goes great as a dip, on top of vegan cheese steaks, on cold sandwiches, in salads, you name it!

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time:  10 minutes
Serves: 4-6


  • 1 large sweet potato, diced into 1 inch cubes
  • 2-3 jalapenos - minced
  • 1/4 cup almond (or other non-dairy, unflavored) milk
  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 - 1 tbsp hot sauce (I like Cholula or Frank's)
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • Boil sweet potatoes until it is easy to put a fork through them. Drain and let it cook once cooked.
  • While you are cooking the sweet potatoes, mince the jalapenos and put them in a small pan on medium heat until soft.
  • Put sweet potato & all ingredients except for the jalapenos into food processor (you can also use a blender). Blend until  you get the consistency you are looking for.
  • Now is the fun part - taste test! I always tend to add more seasoning along the way, but I definitely like a TON. Once you have the taste you are looking for, add the jalapenos, and SERVE!
  • I recommend making some vegan cheese steaks, using it as a dipping sauce, or mixing it into tacos! I have also put it on sandwiches - it is multi-functional!
