Uninstall nuget packages installed with nuget.exe

I was having trouble with nuget Visual Studio 2017 and wanted to test if it was our proxy server or not. I downloaded nuget.exe and dropped it at the root of my C drive. I executed nuget.exe install Microsoft.AspNetCore and it asked for my proxy server username and password. I supplied it, and it proceeded to create dozens of directories in C: with that package and all of it’s dependencies (can I get a DOH!) Problem is, there’s no uninstall in nuget.exe. The package manager in VS isn’t available unless you have a solution open, and the package manager console (powershell) won’t uninstall unless you have a solution open. Can I just clobber all those directories and their contents? Or will that just make things different and somehow worse:
