Kinda Healthy Layer Dip Ingredient Notes
While you can make this dip with entirely store-bought ingredients, it’s never a bad idea to make your own components. It almost always leads to a healthier, more flavorful final product.
I linked our refried black beans recipe in the card below. Here’s a handful of other options for the different layers of your dip:
- Classic Guacamole or a fun spin with this Pomegranate and Pepitas Guacamole
- Fresh Pico de Gallo or mix it up with a homemade salsa
- you can swap the dry spices for taco seasoning and the yogurt for fat free cream cheese for an extra creamy dip like in this taco dip
And if you’re planning to serve your dip right away, you might be interested in incorporating actual taco meat. If so, my Instant Pot ground turkey taco meat is some of the most flavorful meat you’ll come across. The beef from my oven baked tacos also has a surplus of diggity.

*To increase the protein content, you can use 2 cups of Greek yogurt and omit the sour cream. Mix the spices in a large bowl before adding a small amount of Greek yogurt. You want to avoid over mixing the Greek yogurt as it can cause water to separate and create a runny dip.
