This recipe is proof that you can fill a cheese craving in a completely healthy way.  It’s made with no overt fats, and still manages to be creamy, cheesy, and downright delicious.

My favorite ways to eat this is as the topping for my Healthy Loaded Nachos, or as a dipping sauce for my Oil Free Tortilla Chips.

      Hi Chelsea, It’s the liquid in a jar of pickled hot peppers. You can use the brine from any kind of hot pepper (it’s easiest for me to find pickled jalapenos). Happy holidays!
