This healthy recipe for seven layer dip is a guaranteed party hit! Refried beans, guac, spiced quinoa, cashew cream & fresh veggies load it with flavor.

What’s In My Seven Layer Dip Recipe?

So I decided to use my mom’s seven layer dip recipe as a starting point and actually made a fresh vegan version that tastes pretty close to the original. The only visual difference is the lack of orange cheese, but all of the classic (to me) flavors really come through, especially with the refried beans and tangy guacamole. Instead of sour cream I used cashew cream, and I added chili spiced quinoa to make it heartier. This should serve 4 to 6 as a normal appetizer, but of course Jack and I sat down and devoured (most of it) for dinner.

This vegan 7-layer dip is a great game day snack or party appetizer! It’s a healthy dish full of classic taco dip flavor.
