Recipe: Layered Mexican Guacamole Dip- Crowd pleaser
Recently I went to a friends bonfire gathering and we all had to bring a plate. I wanted to bring something that would be super tasty and filling and that the non-vegans would like, and that the Gluten-free vegan in me would love too. I automatically thought Mexican as it’s such a winner, who doesn’t love guacamole? That’s when I came up with the idea of a Layered Mexican Guacamole Dip. I have had these before but this time I wanted to create one myself. I wanted this dip to have all of my favourite things.
There are a few layers in this dip, to really appreciate it in all its glory it is best to serve it in a glass container so you can see all the layers. I unfortunately didn’t have one and couldn’t find one at last minute.
Layered Mexican Guacamole Dip
-Black beans 2 cans
-1 Onion chopped
-2 cloves garlic chopped finely
-1 tsp Cumin
-1/2 tsp Smoked paprika
-Salt + Pepper
Tomato Salsa Layer
– 2 cans chopped tomato
-2 avocados mashed
-1/2 red onion chopped as fine as you can
-Salt + Pepper
Salsa layer on top
-Finely chopped cherry tomatoes
-Start with base layer, fry off the garlic, onion and spices with olive oil or coconut oil.
-Once fragrant add in the black beans
-Once fried for about 5 minutes remove from heat, then mash the beans.
-Set aside then start on the salsa mixture just adding the ingredients together cold is fine.
-The guacamole layer mash everything together, taste as you go to see how much you need in.
-Lastly add in the fresh tomato salsa layer. I mix all these together with the olive oil and salt and then pop it on top.
There you have it. Quite simple and yet so tasty, use as much of the ingredients as you like. To serve I had a bowl of corn chips with it to dip right in and get all the layers.
It was such a hit with everyone, the flavours were intense which is the point right?
This dish is fine served cold.
If you are not plant based you could add in a cheese layer as well. Up to you.
There you have it, I wish I could have taken better photos for you but I was in a rush, thankfully this was actually quite quick and easy to make.
Do you have a favourite bring a plate dish?
