Vegan 7-Layer Dip

You may want to stop everything you’re doing right now and make this vegan 7-layer dip. It’s become a favorite in this house. You could almost call it a staple. It’s SO good and pretty easy to make, even when you make the layers (like the beans, the sour cream, the guacamole, and the cheese) from scratch. But you can easily make these layers with store-bought vegan foods too. So let’s open a bag of tortilla chips and follow the delicious journey to the perfect vegan 7-layer dip.

Refried Beans

Today, it’s all about how to make the best refried beans. Seriously. We make them on the weekends (almost every weekend) and do so many different things with them. Well, mostly we make taco bowls with Spanish rice, tomatoes, olives, lettuce, and vegan sour cream and cheese, but we could do so many other things with them. You can add these beans to a breakfast burrito with spinach, potato, avocado, tomato, etc. And you can serve these up as a side dish as well. Delicious!

Easy-to-make vegan refried beans you can set and forget. No soaking needed! #fruitsohard #vegan #glutenfree #refriedbeans #beans #dinner
