Substitute for Worcestershire sauce

Hi, I am planning to make a dip sauce for nachos. I saw a recipe which uses Worcestershire sauce. I do not have that sauce. Can soya sauce be used instead?

I´m a daring cook. I read recipes, look up what I have and make something with that. Surely you can go to the super and buy Worcestershire sauce. The question I ask myself is: will I use the rest of it before it´s outdated? If I were you, I´d use soya sauce (don´t put too much before tasting) and add whatever you think it could help the flavour (something you have). Many people thing about how unexpensive an ingredient is but forget that the super is not nextdoor and that when you DO go there, you get tempted to buy a lot of other things you don´t really need. Take care!

I don't think it would taste the same? I bought this can of nacho cheese sauce at the 99 cents store which is really good. It has a Jalapeno spice to the whole thing. You just never know what you will find in the dollar store. I didn't even know worcestershire sauce was used for nacho sauce?

I don't think so, Worcestershire sauce is different from soy sauce. The flavors are way different, to prevent ruining your dip sauce better use Worcestershire sauce, it's cheap & easily available on grocery stores.. For me when cooking is concern I don't settle for second choice ingredients. It may ruin the taste of your food.. Happy New Year.. :)
