Vegan Party Food Recipes for the WIN!

This vegan 7 layer dip recipe has all the staple ingredients of the classic dip: plant based sour cream, 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. I start by using a vegan sour cream, which I have a recipe for on my site here!

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.

Layer 1: cream cheese or sour cream. I actually use this shelf-stable tofu  as the base for my vegan sour cream recipe 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: sautéed 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 and Nurishh both have excellent melty vegan versions)
Layer 7: toppings! I added fresh chopped garden tomatoes, these amazing low sodium olives, and jalapenos

Make Taco Dip Vegan for a Healthy Version

This vegan party dip is a simple way to get extra veggies in your diet. I’m all about making recipes plant-based when I can. Vegan cooking does NOT have to be bland, boring, or flavorless… It’s quite the opposite when done right. By building meals around vegan pantry staples and swapping in a few plant-based ingredients you can make healthier meals for you and your family. I made a list of my 125 favorite vegan pantry ingredients that we use on a weekly basis, and check out all my vegan recipes here that are on The Herbeevore. These easy and healthy recipes are fantastic meatless and dairy free meals for your table.

Dietary Modifications

  • This recipe is vegan & vegetarian – I use my vegan sour cream recipe here as the base. But if you eat meat and dairy, feel free to add ’em in! You can add real cheese, sour cream, or chili with meat.  Go wild.
  • This recipe is gluten free – however, make sure to check the beans and salsa before adding.  Most should be GF, but make sure to double check the contents to make sure.
