Creamy-Beany-Cheesy-Guaca-Salsa

This, my friends, is Creamy-Beany-Cheesy-Guaca-Salsa.

Creamy-beany-cheesy guaca salsa (in other words, seven layer dip)

In other words, it’s 7 Layer Dip. But it’s so much more than that. It’s absolutely delicious and it’s actually kind of good for you. Lots of protein, lots of veggies, and not a lot of fat! Wahoo!

And it’s just in time for summer – the season that gives us longer days (and thus more time during the day to eat delicious food?) and hopefully a little more flexibility to spend good ‘ole quality time with folks!

Aaron’s responsible for naming this dip of deliciousness. I’d be a fool not to keep it. It’s almost as fun to eat as it is to say. Creamy-beany-cheesy-guaca-salsa. Creamy-beany-cheesy-guaca-salsa.

On top of being super fun to eat and say, it’s pretty fun to make, too!

The recipe is below, but I wanted to include links to my guacamole and salsa recipes – I would highly recommend using them for this dip!

Alright, c’mon – throw this layer of yumminess together, invite the neighbors over, and have yourself a flavor fest around your kitchen table!

  • Notes

    *You can use store-bought guacamole, but I would highly recommend making and using my recipe for guac! It is so good and that's what I always use!
    **Same with the salsa - you can use store-bought salsa, but I always use my homemade salsa. It is so fresh and so tasty! Check out both recipes on the blog!
