Super Bowl Sunday Layered Vegan Bean Dip Recipe

by | January 28, 2019

The Super Bowl is this coming Sunday and for a non-football fan like me, I only go to the parties for the food. Whether you’re hosting or not, you’re sure to awe all guests with this delicious layered vegan bean dip featuring freshly re-fried beans. This dish is so easy that you can have your little one give a helping hand in the kitchen and it can easily be prepared the day ahead. Here is my favorite way of veganizing the typical 5-layer bean dip.

Layered Vegan Bean Dip Recipe


  • 2 cans pinto beans (not re-fried, you’ll do this step yourself)
  • guacamole
  • vegan sour cream
  • pico de gallo
  • vegan cheddar cheese of your choice
  • vegan butter (I like Earth Balance)
  • almond milk
  • taco seasoning
  • lime juice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • jarred jalapeños (optional)


  1. In a large pan with raised edges, add one tablespoon of butter and two cans of pinto beans.
  2. Using a potato masher (a sturdy fork works just as fine) begin to mash the beans over medium heat. Add half a tablespoon of almond milk in to the mix.
  3. Once you have a consistent texture, turn to low heat and add taco seasoning, a squeeze of lime juice, salt, and pepper. Stir well.
  4. Transfer the re-fried beans to a glass dish with tall, raised edges. This is the dish you will serve the bean dip in. Cover with a lid and refrigerate for thirty minutes or until completely cooled.
  5. Once cooled, you will begin to add the toppings to make even layers. Begin with your favorite guacamole and spread a generous layer over the beans.
  6. Add a hearty layer of vegan sour cream on top of the guacamole to make a third layer.
  7. For the fourth layer, add pico de gallo and if you like your bean dip spicy, cut some jalapeños into circles and add on top of the pico de gallo.
  8. Lastly, top with vegan cheese shreds of your choice. I personally prefer Daiya’s shredded cheddar cheese.
  9. Cover the bean dip and refrigerate until ready to serve. Serve alongside your favorite tortilla chip on Super Bowl Sunday.

    Could add some yeast flakes between layers for a significant nutrient and flavor boost — nice recipe, thanks!
