Gluten Free: Mexican Layered Dip Recipe and Weekly Menu Plan

February 14, 2011

Gluten Free Mexican Layered DipI know there are several versions of this recipe around, I have seen them in blogs, books – just everywhere. My girlfriend bought a dip to a BBQ 10 years ago and then I had never seen anything like it.  I got her recipe for it, tweaked it a little and have been making it ever since. I take this dish everywhere and it is always requested. My husband was surprised I took this long to put this on! (I used a larger bowl than I normally do in the photo above so the dip does look a little lost –  sorry about that!)

Gluten Free: Mexican Layered Dip

You will need:

  • glass bowl (to display the layered affect)
  • can re-fried beans  – I use El de Paso low fat one
  • 2 – 3 avocado’s
  • splash lemon juice
  • 125ml light sour cream
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise – watch mayo, different brands have gluten in them
  • tsp paprika
  • small onion, diced
  • 2 – 3 tomatoes, diced
  • 1 cup grated cheese
  • natural corn chips – I use Doritos or Thomas Chipman


  • Bottom Layer – open can re-fried beans and spread in bottom of the glass dish
  • Next Layer – Mash avocado and little lemon juice and spread on top of beans
  • Next Layer – Mix sour cream, mayo and paprika together and spread on top of avocado
  • Next Layer – Diced Onions
  • Next Layer – Diced Tomatoes
  • Top Layer – Grated Cheese
  • Serve with corn chips or rice crackers
