I thought this turned out rather well. The nacho cheaze was a dead-on ringer for the real thing (at least to someone who hasn’t eaten cheese in a long while LOL). I think DH’s and DS’s would like this sort of thing – my omni brother liked it.
Beans and corn
Mix together and layer in bottom of 9X13 baking pan:
1 can black beans (drained and rinsed)
1 can dark red kidney beans (drained and rinsed)
1 can sweet corn with peppers (drained and rinsed)
1 can chili beans in sauce (hot or mild)
1 TBS dehydrated onion flakes (or finely diced fresh)
Nacho Cheaze (based on recipe from Healthy Heart Foundation)
Combine in food processer or blender:
1 can great northern beans (drained and rinsed)
6 TBS nutritional yeast (not brewer’s yeast)
1/2 C salsa (hot or mild)
2 TBS lemon juice
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp any type of prepared mustard
Blend until very smooth and creamy; pour over beans.
1 bag of Hashbrown potatoes
I used Simply Potatoes Southwestern Hashbrowns but you can use regular hashbrowns mixed with 1 TBS chili powder
Spinkle hashbrowns over cheaze sauce
Bake at 375 F for 45 minutes or until hashbrowns are brown and cheaze is bubbly.
Makes 8 large serving (and would definitely max out your bean servings for the day if you’re doing MWL).
Fatfreevegan Note: The bean layer came out quite dry for a number of us on the fatfree_vegan email list. We suggest adding at least a cup of a tomato-based sauce to the bean ingredients. Otherwise, the recipe’s terrific, and the Nacho Cheaze is one of the best fake cheese sauces we’ve tasted.

This was great! Thank you for this yummy recipe, I’ll be making it again!
I made a few additions:
ADDED to Bean Layer: 1 cups salsa, 1 can chopped black olives, 1 4oz can diced green chilies.
CHEAZE SAUCE in Blender: Needed to add some water, maybe 1/4 cup, to the Cheaze Sauce in the blender because it was not a sauce or smooth. The water helped it thin out and because a sauce.
Used Simply Potatoes Hash Browns, followed your suggestion but added only 1 teaspoon of chili powder to the potatoes & mixed it throughly then topped the casserole with it.
For US we are doing 12 oz servings, so we got 6 servings not 8.
