No one loves a good old-fashioned nacho chip dip more than this Midwestern-er!  I love classic 7 layer taco dip, and have so many fond memories of it being served at every party/sleepover when I was growing up.

  • Loaded with Flavor
  • Veggie-packed
  • Smoky & Velvety
  • Versatile
  • Vegan, gluten free, and high protein!
  • Great for a party or entertaining… or just great for a solo Friday night.

This vegan 7 layer dip recipe has all the staple ingredients of the classic dip: creamy cheese, chili, salsa beans, cheese, and toppings!  But meatless and dairy-free versions replace the original. You won’t miss any flavor with a vegan version of nacho dip.

This dip is super versatile – you can add or substitute layers as needed.   And you can certainly dip more than just chips into these layers: this dip is great for cut veggies, pretzels, or even veggie sticks.

What’s In This Vegan 7 Layer Dip Recipe?

Layer 1: cream cheese or sour cream. I actually use this shelf-stable tofu  as the base for my vegan cream cheese which I used for this dip.
Layer 2: chili beans, I’d recommend using a low sodium chili bean just to cut back on the salt so it doesn’t overpower the rest of the dip.
Layer 3: salsa of choice, this is our absolute favorite brand, I always keep a few jars of this salsa in the pantry for when the chip & salsa craving strikes.
Layer 4: corn, like the beans, I’d recommend a low sodium or no salt added corn like this one.
Layer 5: sauteed fajita veggies – peppers and onions, these roasted red peppers are super sweet and add an amazing flavor to this dish if you don’t have fresh peppers on hand.
Layer 6: cheese (Daiya has an excellent melty vegan version)
Layer 7: toppings! I added fresh chopped garden tomatoes, these amazing low sodium olives, and jalapenos

How Do I Make This Vegan 7 Layer Nacho Dip Recipe?

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
