Yummm who doesn’t love 7 layer dip? It’s always the first appetizer I dive into at a potluck and the first to be licked clean. It’s not often you have to find room in the fridge for this delicious dip after the party is over!

I’ve been making this Keto 7 layer dip for years. I love creating all those perfect layers; the clean lines and beautiful colours are so much fun to make! With proper layer / ingredient choices, your typical 7 layer dip is easily transformed into a great keto friendly dip, one your friends and family won’t even know is made low carb style.

Ingredients

All ingredients used to make Keto Taco Dip.

Taco Seasoning – There’s nothing like Homemade Taco Seasoning, especially because it’s super fast and easy to make, and is free from unnecessary carbs and preservatives.

Guacamole – I highly recommend making your own Guacamole from scratch, not just because it takes just 5 minutes, but you’ll save yourself from unnecessary preservatives, and it’ll be So much tastier than any store bought guacamole you can find.

Salsa – Look for a salsa that has no sugar added, or just make your own Keto Salsa in less than 10 minutes.

Shredded Cheese – Basically any cheese works in this Keto Taco Dip, however my favourite is shredded Mexicana cheese. Tex mex works great, colby-jack, cheddar or cojito.

How to make a Keto Taco Dip

Heat a skillet on medium and once hot, fry the ground beef until no longer pink. Stir in 2 1/2 tbsp taco seasoning until fully combined, then set the cooked beef aside.

Expert Tips

  1. Try to spread the layers as evenly as possible so that you get a cleaner looking Keto Taco Dip.
  2. Dice the tomato up nice and small so that it is easier to pick up with your cracker or chip.
  3. Swap out either of the layers for your own favourites, such as Low Carb Refried Beans, sliced olives or jalapeños.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can I use for dipping into Keto Taco Dip?

My favourite dippin’ pals for this low carb 7 layer dip are definitely these 7 Minute Keto Baked Tortilla Chips. Keto Nacho Chips are awesome too, or Crunchy Keto Crackers. You could make cheese crisps by baking small clumps of grated cheese at 350° until crisp (about 8-10 minutes) or use vegetables – bell peppers cut into wedges work awesome!

Can you have guacamole on keto?

Yes and no. Homemade guacamole? Heck yes. Store bought? Be careful, a lot of brands add sugar to their guacamole. If you are looking for a store bought guacamole, read the label carefully!

What dips can you have on keto?

Besides this Keto taco dip, there are lots of dips you can enjoy on Keto. The Salsa and Guacamole in this recipe are awesome dips, as is this Low Carb Hot Bean & Cheese Dip. Try this Keto Crack Dip from TheHungryElephant or Hot Crab Dip from StepAwayFromTheCarbs.

  1. Did you drain and rinse the soybeans first?

    • Hey Kerry, yes, they need to be rinsed. I did say that up in the post but for some reason missed it in the recipe card – thanks for bringing this to my attention!
