Who’s ready to party?! Whether it’s the Super Bowl or a backyard BBQ, these taco salad 7-layer dip cups are essential. I also showed an example of making this into a single large dish. Feel free to make individual servings or one large layered dip to save time.
Huge shoutout to Kroger for sponsoring this recipe. Where you can find already prepared salsa, non-dairy sour cream, vegan cheeses and/or guacamole. Meaning this can be thrown together without any added prep if you’re pinched for time. Substitute as needed or click the links for each ingredient below for a homemade version. Mix and match the layers you want to make or purchase their store-bought versions. I highly recommend the mild Simple Truth Salsa!

Technically these are 8-layer cups, but it’s based on a 7-layer dip concept I wanted to put my own spin on. Adding my walnut taco “meat”, roasted red salsa, vegan queso and jicama salad. Topped off with shredded romaine lettuce and fresh jalapeño slices. You can sprinkle over crushed tortilla chips to finish it off too. I love the blue corn variety from Simple Truth, however fresh vegetable sticks work great for a lighter option as well.
I recommend preparing all of the homemade elements the day before serving. That way you only have to worry about assembling. I used Simple Truth’s Fat-Free Refried Beans as the base. Followed by guacamole, vegan cheese sauce, walnut taco meat, jicama salad, roasted salsa and tofu sour cream. Feel free to adjust or modify the layers to your preferences. You could also substitute the refried beans for my black bean hummus or Simple Truth’s Meatless Crumble in place of the Walnut Taco “Meat”.

Vegan 7-Layer Taco Salad Dip Cups
Yield 10 servings
- Prep each element the day before if possible, linked above.
- Measure and portion about 1 rounded tbsp of each per layer. Starting with a base of Simple Truth refried beans. Adding guacamole on top of that. Followed by: cheese sauce, walnut taco “meat”, jicama salad, salsa, tofu sour cream and romaine lettuce hearts thinly sliced. Alternatively you can make one large dip and layer everything into one dish.
- Garnish the tops with fresh jalapeño slices (optional) and serve immediately.
Best prepped the day of serving. You can prepare each item the night before and assemble fresh upon serving. Pressed for time or you want to reduce the prep load? Use a store bought vegan shredded cheese for the cheese sauce layer and a ready made tofu based sour cream!
Also check out my black bean hummus as an option to replace the refried beans.
