Classically scrumptious and crowd-pleasing Vegan Seven-Layer Mexican Dip. Tastes super fresh, cheesy and crunchy, just as it should 🙂



1 15-ounce can of refried beans (make sure they are vegetarian/vegan)

sprinkle of cumin and sea salt

1 1/2 cups fresh guacamole

1 15-ounce can black beans (drained and rinsed)

2 tablespoons taco seasoning

1 cups worth of vegan nacho cheese, divided (it’s worth it, trust me)

1 1/2 cup pico de gallo 

1/2 of a 6-ounce can of black olives, drained and sliced (about 3/4 cup worth)

1 jalapeños, sliced (optional)

2 handfuls of cilantro, chopped

corn tortilla chips


First, make a batch of my Vegan Nacho Cheese. Set aside.

Sometimes the refried beans need a little sprucing up when they come out of a can. They can have a very can-like taste so I like to warm them up in a pot on the stove (to cook the can-taste away), add  a sprinkle of cumin and/or sea salt and they taste a million times better. This is an optional but recommended step!

Spread the refried beans in a 8×12-inch dish (or something similar in size). Spread it out evenly with a spatula. Then layer on the guacamole.

Drain and rinse the black beans and mix them with the taco seasoning. Then layer over the guacamole. 

Drizzle 1/2 cup of the vegan nacho cheese over the black beans.

Spoon the pico de gallo over the nacho cheese. Then drizzle the remaining 1/2 cup of the nacho cheese on top.

Lastly, sprinkle the black olives, jalapeños and cilantro on top and voilá!

Enjoy with corn tortilla chips and a watermelon margarita 🙂


You can make it 24 hours ahead of time, but I think it’s best when made the day of. It would go much faster if you made the nacho cheese dip the day before, and then made the seven-layer dip the day of.
