Getting tired of all those other boring bush league bean dips everyone brings to a party? Yeah, me too. They’re unhealthy. Made with a ton of pop-top processed crap. And, probably even outlawed in some states. At least they should be.
But, let us not curse the darkness. Light a candle of hope. Roll out this badass Mexican Seven Layer Bean Dip at any party and you will forever be king of the snack bar.
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 Make Mexican Seven Layer Bean Dip
Grab your favorite platter or baking dish and let’s make Mexican Seven Layer Bean Dip.
I went with the platter so you could see the layers…and it looks so damn 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.
Spread the beans evenly and leave some space around the edges.
2. Shredded Lettuce
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.
Spoon the desired amount of Cauliflower Mushroom Walnut Taco Meat onto the beans and evenly spread. Ooh, baby! It’s starting to look like Mexican Seven Layer Dip. Yum, yum, yum!
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!
For the seventh and final layer. It’s my Game Day Cheese Dip. Make a batch without the salsa and drizzle or pour, whichever you prefer, over the top. And, that’s it!
Congratulations! You just made Mexican Seven Layer Bean Dip.
