Nacho "Cheese" Sauce

We just had nachos for dinner-needed something quick. And I made this "cheese" sauce for my son. Found the recipe on "The Vegan Lunchbox". Next time I may add a little chili powder or taco seasoning for a little more "kick". Not too shabby. Even DH had some on his nachos
makes about 2 cups

2 cups water

¼ cup raw cashews

One 4 oz. jar pimentos, drained

1 cup nutritional yeast flakes

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1 ½ teaspoons salt, or to taste

½ teaspoon onion powder

¼ teaspoon garlic powder

½ teaspoon cumin, heaping

Combine all ingredients and blend until completely smooth. Transfer mixture to a medium saucepan and whisk constantly over medium heat until thickened, about 5 to 6 minutes.Serve as a dip with tortilla chips and vegetables.
