Vegan Bean Dip

Vegan Bean Dip in Square Dish

This 7 layer sweet potato vegan bean dip is one of my favorite flavor combinations.

I live for Mexican food. I can blame it on being a California girl, I suppose. Luckily, my husband is at the same fiesta and our son is learning too! My husband and I always remember when we returned from two weeks of delicious Italian food in Rome and Florence, we came home and had Mexican food at least five times that first week! it’s a thing.

I’m a fajita lover (hence my homemade fajita seasoning) and my guy is into burritos and good enchiladas. Since our love of Mexican cuisine seems to know no end, I’m always looking for new ways to eat these comforting flavors at home.

This is simply a square glass baking dish loaded with the seven layers of this delectable vegan bean dip.

I have also served these individually in drinking glasses, so it stays neater and cleaner. It’s just my kind of seemingly fancy but simple entertaining.

These tasty treats are dairy free, so they can sit out for a while at a party (like a football game – or baseball when it arrives!). No worries of spoiling cheese or sour cream.

In addition to being a vegan dip recipe, it’s also a gluten-free appetizer. Since I always try to be mindful of everyone’s dietary needs, this is perfect for everyone at the table!

Honestly, nobody will notice there’s no meat or cheese. The colors are so beautiful, the flavors are SO GOOD, and everyone will want seconds of this tasty, healthy dip.

If you really go over the top, you can make homemade pico de gallo for one of the layers and really impress your guests! Now we just need to whip up a Mango Margarita (or two) to get this fiesta going! Who’s with me?

Want more sweet potato recipes? This recipe for sweet potato and black bean tacos is very similar but more of an entree. Sweet potato bread is one of my favorite recipes of all time! If you have puree to use, try this sweet potato hummus and these mashed sweet potato toasts!

Sweet potato appetizer cups with parmesan and pecans is such a good combo!

This roasted potato salad (yes, with sweet potatoes) is a fun alternative to your normal rigamarole and these quinoa-stuffed sweet potatoes are a great, healthy dinner!

Want more Mexican-inspired recipes? This Mexican Chocolate Cake is simple and yet so deliciously amazing – same goes for my Iced Mexican Mocha.

Homemade fajita seasoning is a must-have no brainer in our world, something we use regularly in these wild rice stuffed peppers, my one pot Mexican casserole (a fabulous dinner for a small crowd), and my Mexican Grain Bowl. Mexican pinwheel appetizers are a fun appetizer that’s actually very simple and easy to make!

And if you have time, can you sip on some of these raspberry margarita for me? Thanks! I really appreciate it!

I’m a sucker for anything with sweet potato. And if there are two things I LOVE to eat with sweet potato, it’s avocados and black beans. Don’t ask why, but the flavors are perfect. Add a few other favorites and you have a sweet potato bean dip on your hand. There’s no dairy, so you don’t have to worry about it sitting out too long!
