Bean Salad Taco Dip Is Easy To Make

by Alli

Thanks to Paisley Farm Foods for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own. 

Bean Salad Taco Dip is hands down, my new favorite dip. This layered dip is creamy, packed with flavor, and requires no baking. What more could you want from a dip? It’s a winner! 

Bean Salad Taco Dip is perfect for Taco Tuesdays, game night, or anytime you need to whip up a quick appetizer. I can see why this recipe is number one on the Paisley Farm Foods website. One bite and you’ll know why it’s so popular. 

The original Paisley Farm layered dip recipe is amazing, but I decided to put my twist on things by adding cream cheese to the sour cream layer and sprinkling black olives on top because I’m in love with black olives. 

Ingredients for Bean Salad Taco Dip

For my version of this simple recipe, you will need:

  • Paisley Farm Five Bean Salad
  • Taco Seasoning Mix
  • Hot Sauce (just a little)
  • Avocados
  • Sour Cream
  • Cream Cheese
  • Mexican Cheese
  • Tomatoes
  • Green Onions
  • Black Olives
  • Tortilla Chips (for dipping!)

Paisley Farm Five Bean Salad 

I love that this taco dip calls for Paisley Farm Five Bean Salad instead of the traditional canned refried beans you’ll find in most layered taco dips. Paisley Farm Five Bean Salad is flavorful, simple to serve and you can eat the bean salad straight out of the jar if you’d like. 

For this recipe, the bean salad is mashed (I use my trusty old potato masher) with taco seasoning and hot sauce until it resembles refried beans. 

How to Layer My Version of Bean Salad Taco Dip 

Drain and rinse the five bean salad before mashing and combining with the taco seasoning mix and hot sauce. Remember, you want to mash the bean salad to the consistency of refried beans.

I like to use a round glass pie plate to showcase this layered dip. You can also use a shallow bowl.

The bottom layer is the mashed bean salad/taco seasoning/hot sauce. Spoon the bean salad mixture into the pie plate. The next layer is a mixture of sour cream, softened cream cheese, and avocados.

Helpful Hint: I use my stand mixer to beat the cream cheese so that it’s light and fluffy. Turn the mixer to low and add the sour cream and mashed avocados until combined. Spread this mixture over the bean salad layer.

Top with shredded Mexican cheese.

Make Your Own Version of Paisley Farm Bean Salad Taco Dip

The beauty of this dip is that you can put your own spin on things. If you don’t like a topping, leave it out and add what you love. Don’t like avocados? Leave them out of the second layer.

You don’t want to skip the bottom layer. The drained and mashed Paisley Farm bean salad combined with the taco seasoning mix and hot sauce is a game-changer. Trust me, you’ll love it as much as I do.
