Instructions
To Make “Nacho Cheese” Sauce:
  1. Soak the cashews at least 8 hours in cold water just to cover. Drain the water.
  2. Put the cashews in a high-powered blender and add about 1 cup fresh cold water. Blend on high until creamy and smooth. If you feel it is too thick, simply add more water a little at a time to create a runny cream consistency.
  3. Add the orange bell pepper, ancho chile, garlic powder, cumin, and lime juice to blend into a creamy “cheese” sauce.
  4. Hold in refrigerator up to a week or freeze for later.
To Make Crisps:
  1. Preheat oven to 375F (convection if possible).
  2. Line 3 sheet pans with parchment paper.
  3. Toss the red beets with 2 tbsp macadamia nut oil and spread around one sheet pan.
  4. Toss the sweet potatoes and yams each with 2 tbsp macadamia nut oil and spread on the other two sheet pans.
  5. Roast about 10 minutes and check. You may find that having a cool sheet pan handy to place browned crisps on is helpful as they tend to cook at different rates and some may need a few extra minutes. Watch every couple of minutes until all the crisps are crunchy or lightly browned.
To Make Nachos:
  1. Warm the Nacho Cheese Sauce over low heat until bubbly. It will thicken quickly and you can easily thin it out a little with water.
  2. Place Crisps on a platter, drizzle with Nacho Cheese Sauce and garnish with Green Onions and Cilantro. Enjoy!
