Top tips for making this healthy seven layer taco dip
Adapted from Fannetastic Food
- To make this dip more spicy, add a pinch of cayenne pepper, siracha, hot sauce, diced jalapenos, or hot salsa as a topping or side. If you have kids, I recommend leaving the "hot spices" on the side and serve it separately for adults!
- To change things up, substitute pureed white beans mixed with taco seasoning instead of the refried black beans. Sub the refried beans for pureed white beans to make a white bean dip recipe.
- If you don’t have taco seasoning, add a combination of 1/2 teaspoon of cumin, 1/4 tsp ground coriander, 1/2 tsp chili powder, 1/2 tsp paprika to the beans.
- For a smokier dip, saute chopped onions and garlic with 1 tsp olive oil for 5-10 minutes, stirring until deeply caramelized. Add that to the beans before spreading on the plate.
