Simple, delicious, and naturally gluten-free & dairy-free, Real Food 7-Layer Dip will be the hit of your next party or gathering!
2 cups Slow Cooker Refried Beans, cooled (or 1 [15.4-oz] can vegetarian refried beans*)
2 cups mild or medium restaurant-style salsa (or your favorite salsa)
⅓ cup chopped green onion (white and green parts)
⅓ cup sliced black olives
½ cup thinly sliced iceberg lettuce
½ cup sliced cherry tomatoes
¼ cup avocado mayonnaise, vegannaise, or sour cream
2 tablespoons lime juice
- Spread the refried beans in an even layer into the bottom of a 9×13 in baking dish. Spoon on the guacamole, smoothing into a second even layer. Pour over the salsa, smoothing into a third even layer. Sprinkle on an even layer of green onion, then iceberg lettuce, and then tomatoes.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, vegannaise or sour cream with the lime juice. Drizzle the mixture over the tomato layer.
- Serve immediately or refrigerate, covered, for up to 2 days.
* Be sure to use good quality, flavorful beans for this recipe. I find these refried beans have the most flavor. Trader Joe’s also carries a tasty variety.
This recipe is extremely adaptable, so feel free to skip any layers you don’t like, or to add layers you do.
Iceberg lettuce adds a nice crispness and crunch to this dip, but you can use romaine in its place if you like.
