I am working toward eating Vegan, Organic, and raw as much as possible (my family too). I'm married, and have two small kids and two grown step kids.

Mexican 7 Layer Dip recipe (dairy, gluten, egg, soy, and sugar free)

I found this great recipe on the Gluten Free Club site. Make dietary adjustments as needed.

If you need to avoid dairy, use Daiya brand or make your own sour cream from coconut milk, and use Daiya vegan Cheddar Cheese.

I used turkey bacon instead of pork bacon.

I used Amy's Organic Refried Beans (vegan and come in a BPA-free can). They are delicious.

Ok, so it's not 7 layers, but it's hard to stop adding more layers of all your favorites. Customize this dip however you like, this is just a yummy starting point!
Once you have all your layers chopped, shredded, and ready to go, start layering everything in a clear dish: try a pie plate, baking dish - even small wide mouth mason jars to create individual dips.
