Vegan 7-Layer Dip

There are all kinds of fiestas in this word. There’s the Fiesta Bowl. The Ford Fiesta. Fiesta Casinos. Oh, and there’s the Fiesta Familia! Yes, our family fiesta. That happens just about any time we fix this completely delicious, utterly addictive Vegan 7-Layer Dip.

Vegan 7-Layer Dip is a perfect easy appetizer that no one will ever know is vegan!

Vegans and non-vegans alike dive into this dip because each layer of flavor is delicious and there are seven of them! It’s ridiculous. And that’s why I love it so.

Mostly we make this dip for parties. But every now and then we’ll just make it to have here at home. And when we do? I dine on nothing but 7-Layer Dip for days. It’s heavenly.

Vegan 7-Layer Dip

As you can see from the recipe below, this is really more of a 8 or 10 layer dip, depending on how you want to define a layer. I think 7 just has a much nicer ring to it, so I’m going with that.

Vegan Seven Layer Dip is so good, you'll want bite after bite!

I encourage you to make this dip, make it often, and to be sure to call for reinforcement if you don’t make it back out within a given timeframe!

We recently made this recipe again and took some new photos. Here’s the old one, in case you’re curious to see how far we’ve come with food photography. I guess we could all agree…progress has been made. The good news is, the dip tastes as good as the first, fifth, and hundredth time we’ve made it! 🙂

Ingredients
  • 1 package veggie meat crumbles
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2-3 tablespoons from homemade or packaged taco seasoning
  • 1 can black beans rinsed and drained
  • ½ cup salsa
  • 1 package Soy cheddar cheese We use Follow Your Heart or Daiya,
  • 1 8 oz container soy sour cream
  • 1 cup guacamole We use Wholly Guacamole
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 2.25 oz can black olives chopped
  • ½ cup tomatoes chopped
  • ½ cup green onions chopped
  • Tortilla chips for dipping
Instructions
  1. In a large skillet, brown soy crumbles in olive oil. Add the taco seasoning. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
  2. Place the beans in a blender or food processor with 1/2 cup of the salsa. Blend for about 15 - 20 seconds, until the beans are the consistency of refried beans.
  3. Layer the following in a serving dish:
  4. Spread the beans into the bottom of serving tray that is about 1 1/2 inches deep.
  5. Sprinkle 2 cups of shredded soy cheese on top of beans.
  6. Sprinkle taco-flavored soy crumbles on top of cheese.
  7. Spread sour cream very slowly on top of soy crumbles.
  8. Spread guacamole on top of sour cream.
  9. Pour salsa over guacamole and spread evenly.
  10. Sprinkle remaining shredded cheese.
  11. Sprinkle black olives
  12. That completes your seven layers, but it's not "really" complete until you garnish it with a sprinkling of chopped tomatoes and green onions. This part is completely optional, but highly recommended. We serve it right away, but you it's also good after having been stored in the fridge.

  1. Whoa! Double rainbow all the way, Marly (smile). You know, I always think vegan and vegetarian 5-6-7 layers dips are better than the ones that have meat included. I guess it’s b/c they are wholesome while still being decadent and delicious. Yours looks like delicious vegan decadence too! I will definitely be making this soon…
    Oh, and I ate vegetarian chic chic salad today. My Mom won’t buy veganaise:(
    p.s. hope you’ve seen that ‘double rainbow’ guy on YouTube, otherwise, my first statement probably seems pretty weird!

  2. Is there anything better than seven layer dip at a party? I can imagine eating at least 1/4 of this delicious looking appetizer (with a lot of chips!) This is one of Ryan’s favorite treats, and I love this vegan adaptation! Anything with guac makes me happy!

  3. That looks insanely delicious Marly! I would have no problem eating that for days!

  4. I love this kind of dips…the more the better…

  5. Vegan or not…my appetite is wide open for this colorful and delightful platter. Very nice way to be inviting ;o)

    Ciao for now,
    Claudia

  7. Beautiful 7 layer dip, let the games(football) begin!, I’ll be enjoying this wonderful dip while watching my favorite team play, thanks Marly:-)

    Wow, this looks so delicious! I think I’m going to make it for lunch next week! I love doing layered dips for meals with the family – we all find it fun and a nice change. Two questions:
    1. What are soy crumbles??…I don’t live in the US and we don’t have a lot of vegetarian substitutes here. Would that be a substitute for ground meat?
    2. How much (weight wise) is in a package of soy crumbles that you use?

  9. Yum! That looks incredible. Fiesta in a bowl! 🙂

  10. Hear my stomach rumbling?
    Yeah, thought so 😀

    • Is that what that is? I thought those were big rigs downshifting on the freeway! 😉
