Football and snacking seem to go hand in hand, especially when you get to the championship games and Super Bowl!  Heck, many people go to Super Bowl parties solely for the food, company and advertisements…

This 7 Layer Mexican Dip is a classic, crowd pleasing dip with a few twists for extra flavor and freshness.  Refried and Black Beans mixed with taco seasoning, Homemade Guacamole with Banana Peppers & Cilantro (the banana peppers help keep the guacamole from turning brown), low fat sour cream (or dairy free alternative), Mexican shredded cheese, fresh tomatoes, olives and scallions.   Our version is fresh, flavorful and perfect with your favorite chip!

Also, it’s naturally gluten-free so it’s a great dish to bring to a party to make sure you have something yummy to enjoy too!

Cuisine: Gluten-Free, Vegetarian, Vegan Optional
Ingredients
  • 1 15oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 15 oz can refried beans
  • 2-3 teaspoons gluten-free taco seasoning (according to taste)
  • ⅔ cup low fat sour cream or dairy free alternative
  • 3- 3½ ripe avocados (depending on size)
  • ½ cup jarred banana peppers, chopped
  • ¼ cup cilantro, chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 heaping cup grape tomatoes, quartered
  • ⅔ cup -1 cup shredded Mexican Blend Cheese (or dairy free alternative)
  • ⅓ cup black olives, sliced
  • ⅓ cup green onions, sliced (green part only)
Instructions
  1. Place Tomatoes in a strainer over a bowl, sprinkle with salt and set aside while you prep the other layers. This will help the tomatoes release some water so that the dip doesn't get watery.
  2. Bean Layer: In a small bowl mix refried beans and taco seasoning. Gently fold in black beans.
  3. Guacamole layer: With a fork gently mash 2 avocados. Mix in the peppers. Then gently fold in cilantro. Add in the third avocado and gently mash with a fork (I like to do the third avocado last so that there are some chunky avocado pieces but mix to your liking). Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. In a shallow pan (8x 12 or 8 x 11), use a spatula to layer beans, guacamole, sour cream, diced tomatoes, cheese, black olives and chopped green onions.
  5. Serve with your favorite chips. Enjoy!
