This is the best Vegan 7 Layer Dip! It’s made with healthy, whole-food ingredients and is the perfect appetizer or party treat.
Getting tired of all those other boring bush-league bean dips everyone brings to a party? It’s time to roll out this amazing Vegan 7 Layer Dip. And, it’s sure to be the centerpiece of any gathering.
World saved. Mission accomplished. Let’s make it!
DISCLAIMER: I know everyone hates frivolous musings and tons of pictures on food blogs. You just want the recipe. I get it. But, I do have lots of pictures so you can see the process. If you’d like to “wing it”, you’re more than welcome to just scroll on down to the recipe card.
But, if a picture of your recipe ends up on a Buzzfeed food “Nailed It”, you can’t say I didn’t try to help. OK, carry on.
How To 7 Layer Bean Dip
Grab your favorite platter or baking dish and let’s make this healthy Mexican layered dip.
I went with the platter so you could see the layers…and it looks so pretty! So, I’ll be laying out the process for the serving platter.
But, if you are using a baking dish. No worries. It’s not complicated. Just pile everything up in the dish and serve. Really. That’s all there is to it.
1. Unfried Refried Beans
First, spread the beans evenly and leave some space around the edges.
2. Shredded Lettuce
Next, fill in the space around the beans with shredded lettuce. You can shred or chop it yourself. But, I’m lazy and like the convenience of the prepackaged stuff or using my food processor.
3. Cauliflower Mushroom Walnut Taco Meat
Spoon the desired amount of Cauliflower Mushroom Walnut Taco Meat onto the beans and evenly spread. Ooh, baby! It’s starting to look like Vegan 7 Layer Dip. Yum, yum, yum!
4. Easy Vegan Tofu Sour Cream
Now, add the Easy Vegan Tofu Sour Cream on top of the taco meat. We’re getting close!
Spread your favorite guacamole evenly over the taco meat.
Yes, I use store bought guacamole because I get tired of waiting on the avocados to ripen. No, I’m not apologizing. What brand do I use? I LOVE Wholly Guacamole! And, I’m not getting paid to say that.
FYI, this guacamole is perfectly worthy to sit atop of what I consider to be the best Mexican Seven Layer Bean Dip in the world.
Add your favorite STORE BOUGHT salsa. Once again…NOT SORRY!
7. Game Day Cheese Dip
Now, it’s time for the seventh, final, and my favorite layer. It’s my Easy Vegan Cashew Queso. Make a batch without the salsa and drizzle or pour, whichever you prefer, over the top. And, that’s it!
Congratulations! You just made the BEST Vegan 7 Layer Dip … EVER!
How To Serve Vegan 7 Layer Dip
Keep this dip healthy by serving with my Homemade Tortilla Chips.
But, don’t stop there. Turn this bean dip into an amazing taco platter. “How?” You ask.
Make some of my Crunchy Baked Taco Shells and fill them with heaping spoonfuls of this Mexican Seven Layer Bean Dip. It’ll be one of the most memorable and delicious experiences of your life. Yeah, it’s that good.
Not Just For Parties
You don’t need a reason to make this vegetarian 7 layer bean dip. Yes, it’s great for parties and the big game. But, do it just because you love your family or show your friends how much they mean to you.
And, don’t be surprised to see them go back for thirds or fourths. It’s completely normal.

I served this layered in individual bowls, letting everyone add their own toppings, and served with chips as a quick dinner. We absolutely loved it!
Few little slices of black olive wouldn’t hurt, either!!
Amazing no oil recipe(s)! Vegan decadence at it’s finest.
Thank you so much!
I can rate this 5 stars because I’ve made your taco “meat” recipe and turned it into nachos that were among the best I’ve ever had. So I can just imagine how freakin’ delicious this will be! I love being able to transform favorite Mexican food recipes into whole food/plant-based dishes with no oil. It makes me want to host parties just for omni friends to show them how delicious this way of eating really is. That this food is also healthy is a super big bonus. Thanks again for another great recipe, Shane!
