Vegan Bean Dip that’s Easily Everyone’s Favorite – Even the Kids!


My house is currently split 3-3 bean eaters vs. bean avoiders. One of my kids love seven-layer bean dip and makes it often, but it’s not a big hit with other members of the household. I thought he might have better luck with a different vegan bean dip recipe, one that’s more homogeneous. They like hummus, right?

Easy Vegan Bean Dip that Brings Everyone Together

We looked online and found several homemade versions of what I call “Frito-Lay Bean Dip.” We omitted the shredded cheese and used dairy-free substitutes for cream cheese and sour cream. Amazingly, we came up with a bean dip everyone enjoyed.

Serve this dip at parties, for games (like the Superbowl!), or as a snack. It’s perfect with chips or your favorite vegetables. We think bell pepper slices are particularly good with it.

Kids Can Make this Recipe

Because this is a dump-and-mix recipe, kids can do all of the cooking by themselves. Younger children might need help with the oven.
