Amazing vegan 7 layer Mexican bean dip- perfect for superbowl snacking! (NFL defensive lineman and 300 pound vegan David Carter’s recipe!)

 

Ingredients

  • 1 can (16-ounces) organic refried beans
  • 1 pkg. (1-ounce) taco seasoning mix (We use cumin, salt, pepper,& paprika to taste)
  • 1 container (8-ounces) of vegan sour cream
  • 1 small can chopped/sliced jalapeño peppers
  • 1 small can diced black olives
  • 1 cup of your favorite pre-made salsa (any kind)
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 cup vegan cheese (we use our homemade Creamy Cashew Queso)
  • 1/2 cup diced/chopped green onions
  • 3/4 cup or more diced tomatoes

Directions

David’s Instructions:“In a medium bowl, stir together the vegan sour cream and jalapeño peppers. Set aside.Now heat the beans, stirring in taco seasoning (Or cumin, salt, pepper, & paprika to taste) until hot.Spread bean mixture in a shallow serving dish about 1/2 inch thick.Next, sprinkle the grated vegan cheese (Or pour Creamy Cashew Queso) over the hot beans (this will help the grated vegan cheese melt).Follow this by layering on the mashed avocado, tomatoes and salsa, then spooning on the vegan sour cream/jalapeño mix, and finally topping with olives and/or green onions. Additional avocado slices can and should be placed on top.And I serve it immediately because I usually cant wait, with my favorite tortilla chips, Garden Of Eatin Organic Blue Red Hots.”

David’s Instructions:“This is the only way I eat queso. It’s a super delicious way to pig out on healthy carbs and get important omega 3’s. I have to admit I don’t do any measuring for this recipe (it just depends on how hungry I am) but not to worry its really simple and fast. I just throw all the ingredients in my Vitamix and add according to your taste. There’s no real way to mess this one up, which is why it’s the only thing I cook in the kitchen, haha.”Creamy Cashew Queso is an original recipe by David Carter.
