Football and snacking seem to go hand in hand, especially when you get to the championship games and Super Bowl!  Heck, many people go to Super Bowl parties solely for the food, company and advertisements…

This 7 Layer Mexican Dip is a classic, crowd pleasing dip with a few twists for extra flavor and freshness.

Plus it’s super EASY to prepare and naturally gluten-free.

Here’s what you’ll need: canned black beans, canned refried beans, your favorite taco seasoning, avocado, shredded cheese or dairy-free cheese, sour cream or dairy-free sour cream, cherry or grape tomatoes, cilantro, green onions, jarred pepperoncini (aka banana peppers), and black olives.

Our version is fresh, flavorful and perfect with your favorite chip!

So let’s make it!

The first thing I like to do it cut the tomatoes and let them sit in a strainer sprinkled with salt so that they release their water. This step is helpful in keeping the dip from getting watery.

Next I like to prepare the layers starting with the first layer which is a mix of refried beans, black beans and taco seasoning. Packed with protein and flavor!

Next up, let’s make the guacamole layer. It’s essentially our Best Ever Guacamole and is a mix of avocado, cilantro and jarred pepperoncini (aka banana peppers). The banana peppers help keep the guacamole from turning brown and add the best flavor in place of lemon or lime.

After this is comes together really quickly…

Add a layer of sour cream. Then cheese. Then top with black olives, then tomatoes and scallions.

It’s festive, inviting and delish!

Also, it’s naturally gluten-free so it’s a great dish to bring to a party to make sure you have something yummy to enjoy too!

Hope you love it as much as we do!

Prep Time20 minutes
Total Time20 minutes
Course: Appetizer, Side Dish, Snack
Cuisine: Gluten-Free, Vegetarian, Vegan optional
Author: Healthy Gluten-free Family


  • 1 15 oz can black beans rinsed and drained
  • 1 15 oz can refried beans
  • 2-3 teaspoons gluten-free taco seasoning according to taste
  • 2/3 cup low fat sour cream or dairy free alternative
  • 3- 3 1/2 ripe avocados depending on size
  • ½ cup jarred banana peppers chopped
  • ¼ cup cilantro chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 heaping cup grape tomatoes quartered
  • 2/3 cup -1 cup shredded Mexican Blend Cheese or dairy free alternative
  • 1/3 cup black olives sliced
  • 1/3 cup green onions sliced (green part only)


  • Place Tomatoes in a strainer over a bowl, sprinkle with salt and set aside while you prep the other layers. This will help the tomatoes release some water so that the dip doesn't get watery.
  • Bean Layer: In a small bowl mix refried beans and taco seasoning. Gently fold in black beans.
  • Guacamole layer: With a fork gently mash 2 avocados. Mix in the peppers. Then gently fold in cilantro. Add in the third avocado and gently mash with a fork (I like to do the third avocado last so that there are some chunky avocado pieces but mix to your liking). Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • In a shallow pan (8x 12 or 8 x 11), use a spatula to layer beans, guacamole, sour cream, diced tomatoes, cheese, black olives and chopped green onions.
  • Serve with your favorite chips. Enjoy!
