Seven Layer Dip

Posted on May 25, 2018 at 11:35 AM by IWLS Dietitians


  • 3 medium-sized ripe avocados

  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice

  • ½ tsp. salt

  • ¼ tsp. pepper

  • 1 & ½ C plain Greek yogurt

  • 1 package taco seasoning mix (or make your own mix using this recipe)

  • 2 cans (9 oz. each) bean dip or 2 cans refried beans — or make your own, or just use canned rinsed/drained whole black or pinto beans!

  • 1 bunch green onions, chopped (optional)

  • 3 medium-sized ripe tomatoes, chopped

  • 2 cans (3 ½ oz. each) pitted ripe sliced olives, drained (optional)

  • 1 package (8 oz.) grated sharp cheddar cheese



1. Peel, pit and mash avocados in a bowl with lemon juice, salt and pepper (or put in blender). If you’re in a hurry and don’t have any ripe avocados, you can also substitute 2 containers of mildly seasoned guacamole dip from the refrigerated section at the grocery store.

2. In another bowl, combine yogurt and taco seasoning mix.

3. To assemble:

  • Spread bean dip/refried beans on a LARGE shallow serving platter.

  • Spread avocado mixture over bean dip.

  • Spread yogurt-taco mixture over the avocado mixture.

  • Sprinkle with the chopped green onions, then the tomatoes, and finally the olives.

  • Cover with the grated cheddar cheese.

Serve with sliced peppers, celery or cucumbers for a low carbohydrate option.
