This 7 layer sweet potato dip is my latest rendition of all my favorite flavors.
I live for Mexican food. I can blame it on being a California girl, I suppose. Luckily, my guy is at the same fiesta! After two weeks of delicious Italian food in Rome and Florence last year, we came home and had Mexican food at least five times that first week. I could’ve handled more too.
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.
It ended up being a salad topper for my dinner one night while it served as a soft taco filling for him. I love the idea of serving this in individual servings though.
These are plain drinking glasses, loaded with the seven layers of this delectable vegan dip. It’s just my kind of seemingly fancy but simple entertaining. And these tasty treats are dairy free, so they can sit out for a while at a party. No worries of spoiling cheese or sour cream.
7 Layer Sweet Potato Dip
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 (or at an upcoming Cinco de Mayo party)!
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 on the Rocks (or two) to get this fiesta going! Who’s with me?

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 pinwheels 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 mango margaritas on the rocks for me? Thanks! I really appreciate it!
