Smoky Nacho Cheez Sauce

My OH just made the most amazing nacho cheez recipe. I'm not a fan of loads of nutritional yeast, so I was skeptical, but this was amazing! The smoke flavor really rounds it out.   Makes about 3/4 cup.   Throw all the following in a food processor & combine. Thickens further after it sits a few minutes.

1/2 cup roasted, unsalted cashews
1/2 tsp Tabasco
1 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp cumin
2 tsp of the juice from a jar of sliced jalapenos
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
2 tsp of corn flour
1 tsp lime juice
1 tsp garlic powder
2 drops smoke flavor
1/4 cup water
1 tsp vegan fajita seasoning (or just add a dash of salt and up the amt. of cumin and lime juice a little)
