This is a TV news story shot, reported, wrote & edited by Mike Carroll from KCRA-3. It was broadcast on KCRA-3′s once-a-month magazine program Common Ground on May 18, 2013. It is about me, Ilsa Hess, and my vegan nacho cheese dip, Nacheez. When I was down-sized from my state job, I didn’t go looking for a new job, I created one. For more information please visit kcra.com and mikecarrollfilms.com
It’s so exciting to announce our brand new flavor of Nacheez: MEDIUM! It has all the delicious nacho flavor from Anaheim peppers like Spicy Nacheez, but without the spicy kick of jalapenos. Try some today!
Ashley from The Unintentional Vegan wrote a lovely review about Nacheez. Thank you, Ashley!
“Now that I think about it, I think fantastic might be too subtle of a word – you guys, it’s deliciously addicting and strikingly similar to in texture and taste to the kind of nacho cheese you get at the ball park along side a big fat pretzel.”

$1 of every jar of Nacheez sold at the 1yr party today AND on Nacheez.com goes to Animal Aid Unlimited!
For this year’s Sacramento Earth Day, I will have a Nacheez booth and will be selling $2 Nacheez nachos, jars of Nacheez and giving out free samples. Come on by and say HI! All the food will be vegan this year.
Yep! Nacheez has been around rocking the world for one whole year! This is a customer appreciation event, so come on out, have a super nacho and some cake. Feel appreciated, darn it!

This week’s Sacramento News & Review featured the owner of Nacheez/Love & Joy Foods, Ilsa Hess (hey! That’s me!), in their article about local entrepreneurs.
It’s been just over a year since the first jars of Ilsa Hess’ Nacheez went on sale in Sacramento. After being abruptly laid off from a job with the county, Hess took a chance on marketing her vegan, cashew-based nacho sauce and has since spawned a nondairy phenomenon. Nacheez currently is sold throughout California, as well as in Indiana, Illinois, Oregon, Washington and British Columbia, with more retailers on the way. (B.C.)
The Veggie Kids folks gave out a big shout out about Nacheez in their blog today.
“…And might I just add, based on my own opinion, this stuff is super delicious! My kids, husband and I all devoured a jar in no time flat. (I like the mild version because I’m a wimp when it comes to heat.) We ate it over chips but I’m eager to try it over pasta for the easiest vegan mac’n cheese ever!
Marie Oser of VegTV.com creates a deliciously healthy vegan burrito with Nacheez. Since Nacheez is only 140 calories per jar (and only 4 Weight Watchers points per jar!) this burrito is very healthy for you.

Here I am on TV talking about my Nacheez and also about the Sac VegFest. It was fun, but I was super nervous! (video courtesy of Sac & Co.)
The PETA2 blog mentions Nacheez in a post about vegan quesos. Read the whole post.
A loving fan of Viva Vegan Store in Montreal, Canada created a video to showcase the great vegan items for sale inside the shop – including a close-up of Nacheez! Great job, Melissa Galianos!
VRG’s Vegetarian Journal Magazine did a great review of Nacheez in the ‘veggie bits’ section.
“Calling All Nacho Lovers!: Are you going to a play-off game or catching a new flick on the big screen? Well, Nacheez is a delightful vegan alternative to the nacho cheese you’d find coating chips at stadiums and movie theaters…”
