  • Whiz all ingredients in blender until very smooth.
  • If using VitaMix, may blend for 6-8 minutes until sauce has cooked and thickened but still pourable. If not using VitaMix, go to next step.
  • Pour into small saucepan over medium high heat and stir constantly until it boils. Allow to boil for about 30 seconds. Will thicken with cooking.
  • Variations: May add ½ c. of roasted, canned pimentos (or 1/4 large red sweet bell pepper) for a sweeter, orange colored cheese.
