Add all of the ingredients into a high-speed blender and run until smooth. Start with 1/3 cup of water and then add more as needed if the sauce is too thick for drizzling.
Transfer the sauce to a squeeze bottle if desired.
In a medium pot over medium heat, heat about 2-3 tablespoons of water. Once heated, add the onions and garlic, and sauté for 3-4 minutes or until fragrant and translucent, adding more water as needed to prevent burning.

In a medium pot over medium heat, heat about 2-3 tablespoons of water. Once heated, add the onions and garlic, and sauté for 3-4 minutes or until fragrant and translucent.
Once cooked, scoot the onions and garlic to the side of the pan and add in the nutritional yeast. Toast over medium heat for about 1 minute.
Add in the remaining ingredients except for the tofu and mix until smooth. Using clean hands, finely crumble the tofu into the pan and mix well until all of the tofu is coated. Cook for 5-8 minutes more and adjust seasonings to taste, adding more water as needed to prevent burning.
Add about 1 1/2 cups of tortilla chips into the pot of sauce and gently toss with a large spoon until the chips are coated. Try to work fast as you don’t want the chips to get soggy quickly!
Transfer the chips to a plate, being sure to shake off any excess sauce into the pot. Top the chips with about 1/4 of the tofu, beans, garnishes of choice, and a drizzle of the chipotle cashew cheese sauce.
This recipe yields more sauce than needed, but we found that larger batches blend better in our Vitamix blender. You can either half the recipe or save the leftovers to use in other recipes during the week!
Our chilaquiles are meant to be served immediately after assembling so if you are planning to make these for a crowd, we recommend you plate the chilaquiles individually as you serve them. In order to efficiently do so, just be sure to have all of the ingredients prepped ahead of time and create an assembly line to streamline the process for yourself!
