Whether you’re watching a game or hosting a dinner party, nachos are a staple finger food. Easily customizable, they can be topped with all your favorite foods: guacamole, onions, tomatoes, beans, jalapeños, and more! And now, making all-vegan nachos just got easier with Trader Joe’s Organic Vegan Nacho Dip!
Typically, nachos are topped with cheesy goodness and your meat of choice—usually beef or chicken. However, we know that animal-derived foods (that includes meat and dairy products) come with a much higher environmental footprint in comparison to plant-based options. That’s why vegan alternatives to meat and dairy are hitting grocery store shelves and making their way onto mainstream menus.
If you’re looking to veganize your favorite nacho recipe but aren’t sure where to find vegan nacho dip, Trader Joe’s has got you covered with its latest product drop. Here’s everything you need to know about its new Organic Vegan Nacho Dip.

According to Trader Joe’s, this vegan nacho dip is 100% organic, dairy-free, and gluten-free. And don’t worry about compromising flavor!
The dip is creamy, spreadable, and pairs well with tortilla chips, crackers, or crudités. You can eat it straight out of the fridge, or you can pop it in the microwave for a few seconds for some warm, cheesy deliciousness.
The dip is also versatile: You can melt it and spread it over your all-vegan nachos. You can also add it to a burrito or a sandwich, spread it onto crackers, or simply use it as a dip. And no matter how you choose to eat it, you can be sure your nacho dip is totally plant-based.
