This 9 Layer Mexican Dip is a crowd pleaser.

This dip is really easy to make and can be made even easier by purchasing prepared guacamole and using leftover taco meat or chili. Of course, if you’re feeling ambitious, feel free to make your own salsa, guacamole and pickled jalapeno peppers (just cook sliced jalapeno peppers in vinegar for a few minutes). Check out my video on How To Make Guacamole if you want to make your own – it’s really easy.

This is a healthier dip for Super Bowl, with vegetarian refried beans (so no unhealthy fats), a leaner taco meat made with turkey, low-fat shredded cheese, non-fat Greek yogurt, and fresh vegetables (red bell peppers, avocados, tomatoes, onions, jalapenos).

When my son and I sat down the other day to come up with the layers in this dip, I listed out all the possibilities and this is what he came up with:

  1. Refried Beans (vegetarian)
  2. Chopped Red Bell Peppers
  3. Turkey Taco Meat
  4. Salsa and Fresh Tomatoes
  5. Shredded Cheese (cheddar or Mexican blend)
  6. Guacamole
  7. Non-Fat Greek Yogurt
  8. Pickled Jalapeno Peppers
  9. Chopped Red Onions and Scallions

This dip is both hot and cold, with the first five ingredients layered, then heated until the cheese is nice and gooey, then topped with creamy guacamole, taco flavored Greek yogurt, spicy pickled jalapeno peppers, and crunchy red onions and scallions. 9 Layer Mexican Dip for a Crowd © Jeanette's Healthy Living

Remember – choose your dippers wisely. We’ve been enjoying all our dips with Food That Tastes Good Multigrain Tortilla Chips (I bought a huge bag from Costco’s).

We’re hosting our first Google+ Live Cooking Demonstration today at 4PM EST. It’s now on YouTube so take a look to see how easy this dip is to make.

Prep time
Cook time
Total time
There are actually 11 layers in this dip if you count the tomato and scallions. Mix and match your favorite ingredients. For ease of preparation, make turkey taco meat ahead (or even better, make extra taco meat for dinner one night and use the leftovers in this dip). You can purchase prepared guacamole. You can serve this dip room temperature if you like (without melting the cheese).
Turkey Taco Meat
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • ½ pound turkey
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 1 15-ounce can vegetarian refried beans
  • ½ cup red bell pepper, finely diced
  • ½ cup salsa
  • ½ cup fresh tomatoes, diced, optional
  • 1½ cups low-fat shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • 1½ cups guacamole
  • 1 cup non-fat Greek yogurt
  • pickled jalapeno pepper slices, as desired
  • ¼ cup chopped red onions
  • 1 scallion, minced, optional
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Turkey Taco Meat
  1. Heat oil in a saute pan over medium heat. Add ground turkey and cook until browned. Add taco seasoning and continue cooking for 2-3 minutes.
Making the Dip
  1. In a large pie pan or square baking dish, layer refried beans, red bell peppers, turkey taco meat, salsa, tomatoes (if using), and shredded cheese.
  2. Bake until cheese is melted and beans and taco meat are heated through, about 20-25 minutes. Remove from oven. Add a layer of guacamole, yogurt, some jalapeno pepper slices, chopped onions and scallions.

  1. I love layered dips like this! I am also a big fan of using the greek yogurt to help keep it healthy! Looks perfect for Sunday. :)

  2. I love 7 layer bean dip, but haven’t had it in ages (you know ’cause it’s not so healthy most of the time). This on the other hand sounds absolutely delightful and I especially and charged up about the taco spiced yogurt! Great idea.

  3. Such a perfect dip! Totally making this for the SuperBowl!

  4. Now I wish I were planning a Super Bowl party — this would be a great treat!

  5. I always love the clips of your little helpers!

  6. Layered dips are such a party staple–I love that you managed to lighten this one up a bit. Then I can eat even more! 😀

  7. looks fabulous Jeanette

  8. Can go wrong with a layered dip! The perfect way to please party attendees!

  9. I love dips like this. I could eat them all the time.
