How to Make 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.

This vegetarian 7 layer dip is relatively easy to make. Simply spread fat-free refried beans in the bottom of your serving dish and then top it with layers in this order: seasoned veggie crumbles, vegan sour cream, vegan cheese, guacamole, chopped tomatoes and more.

Of course, if you’re like me and prefer things extra spicy, then be sure and have some hot sauce on the side!

How long does Seven Layer Dip last in the refrigerator?

Cover your seven-layer dip with plastic wrap or keep it in a sealed container. When properly stored, it should last up to 4 days in the fridge. However, if you’re keeping it in the fridge that long, it’s recommended to serve the guacamole on the side, as it can brown over time.

Do you warm up 7 Layer Dip?

Some people serve seven Layer Dip baked. That’s referred to as Hot Seven Layer Dip. To do this, layer the refried beans on the bottom, topped by the seasoned veggie crumbles, and then topped with the cheese. Bake this in an oven at 375F° for about 15 – 20 minutes, until the beans are hot and the cheese has melted. Then remove from the oven and add the remaining layers.

Can you make 7 Layer Dip the night before?

You can easily make this layered dip the night before a big event, as the flavor gets better as it sits overnight. This vegan bean dip recipe is best when served within 24 hours of being made.

Can you make Seven Layer Dip without guacamole?

You can make 7 Layer Dip without guacamole. You could always find another creamy layer to add, like warmed cream cheese combined with salsa.

Either way it’s a perfect vegan chip dip for watching football!

  • 1 package veggie meat crumbles
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2-3 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 15 ounce can black beans rinsed and drained
  • ½ cup salsa
  • 1 cup vegan cheddar cheese
  • 8 oz vegan sour cream
  • 1 cup vegan guacamole
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 2.25 oz can black olives chopped
  • ½ cup tomatoes chopped
  • ½ cup green onions chopped
  • Tortilla chips for dipping


  • In a large skillet, brown soy crumbles in olive oil. Add the taco seasoning. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
  • 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.
  • Layer the following in a serving dish:
  • Spread the beans into the bottom of serving tray that is about 1 1/2 inches deep.
  • Sprinkle 2 cups of shredded soy cheese on top of beans.
  • Sprinkle taco-flavored soy crumbles on top of cheese.
  • Stir vegan sour cream (and consider adding a little plant-based milk if it’s super thick). Then carefully spread sour cream across top of veggie crumbles.
  • Spread guacamole on top of sour cream.
  • Pour salsa over guacamole and spread evenly.
  • Sprinkle remaining shredded cheese.
  • Sprinkle black olives
  • 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. 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?

  4. […] Vegan 7-Layer Dip – All beans are vegan, so any dish you make with a bean base, such as 7 layer dip, will taste pretty much the same if you veganize it. If you are new to the vegan lifestyle, be sure to eat plenty of them; they are a great source of protein, fiber, vitamin B and potassium. If the beef is your favorite part of a 7-layer dip, you have to try Beyond Beef meat crumbles; non-vegans say they are the closest tasting to regular beef on the market. […]
