This dip can really be 5, 6, 7 or 8 layers depending on what you want to throw into it.  I added several layers of fiber filled beans and veggies to help even out the very fattening yet scrumptious oooey gooey layers.

Most vegan 7 layer dips are almost as fattening and bad for you (minus the cholesterol from dead animals) that you still can have a mini heart attack from them or at least gain 5 lbs in a sitting.  I decided to find a way to cut that fat down enough that I would eat some of it while still keeping enough in it that my meat eating guests would eat it too and not notice it was too “healthy” or at least healthier than the traditional one.

You can fatten it up even more by adding some olives to it or you can lower the fat more by reducing the sour cream and cheese layers to the bare minimum.

I add a layer of corn tortillas in the bottom to give it a more hearty, meal feel while keeping it all from sticking to the bottom.  It somehow gives it a base to hold on to almost like pizza crust does.  When you scoop it from the bottom it all seems to stay in one nice even layer instead of falling all over the place.

Serves: 6-10

2 corn tortillas
1 can refried beans
2-3 avocados
1 teaspoons lime juice
1/2 container vegan sour cream
1/2 packet or more taco seasoning
1/2 can black beans
1/2 cup corn
2-3 tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup or more vegan cheese (I use Daiya)
Low fat tortilla chips

Preheat the oven to 375°F.

Lay 2 corn tortillas in the bottom of a medium sized glass bowl or pan.  Tear them to fit if needed. Perfection is not important.

Spread 1 can of refried beans over the tortillas and smooth out.

Mash 2-3 avocados up with lime juice  in a small bowl until well mixed.  Spread the mixture on top of the refried beans.

Mix together the vegan sour cream and taco seasoning in a small bowl .  Spread the mixture on top of the avocados.

Top with black beans, corn and tomatoes.

Spread the vegan cheese evenly on top and cover with a lid or foil and bake for 25-35 minutes.

Remove from the oven and serve warm with tortilla chips.  ENJOY!
