Healthier Super Bowl Sunday Seven Layer Dip!

Looking for a healthier (but still delicious) version of the classic Super Bowl Sunday Seven Layer Dip for this weekend? Look no farther.

The secret? Using nonfat plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream and mayonnaise! Your friends and family won’t even notice the difference… I promise.

Healthier Super Bowl Sunday Seven Layer Dip


  • 3 medium-sized ripe avocados
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. pepper
  • 1 & ½ C nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 package taco seasoning mix (or make your own mix using this recipe)
  • 2 cans (9 oz. each) bean dip (or 2 cans refried beans — or make your own!)
  • 1 bunch green onions, chopped (optional)
  • 3 medium-sized ripe tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 cans (3 ½ oz. each) pitted ripe sliced olives, drained
  • 1 package (8 oz.) grated 2% sharp cheddar cheese


1. Peel, pit and mash avocados in a bowl with lemon juice, salt and pepper (or put in blender). If you’re in a hurry and don’t have any ripe avocados, you can also substitute 2 containers of mildly seasoned guacamole dip from the refrigerated section at the grocery store.

2. In another bowl, combine yogurt and taco seasoning mix.

3. To assemble:

  • Spread bean dip/refried beans on a LARGE shallow serving platter.
  • Spread avocado mixture over bean dip.
  • Spread yogurt-taco mixture over the avocado mixture.
  • Sprinkle with the chopped green onions, then the tomatoes, and finally the olives.
  • Cover with the grated cheddar cheese.

4. Serve chilled with your choice of corn chips.

    Thanks for these recipes Anne. I especially like the looks of the baked stuffed baby bella mushrooms and the pumpkin bean dip. I will definitely make these for Sunday evening. I hate to say this but I could care less about the super bowl game, but my family and friends will be with us and that’s all I care about. I always went to my boys and grandson’s games but I just don’t like football. I put on an act how much I love it and evidently they bought it. I love baseball.

      I don’t like football, either :) I don’t really like watching sports in general unless I’m actually in person at the game… the only things I’ll really watch on TV are tennis and swimming since I used to do those myself :)

        I like to watch tennis also. I used to play tennis when I was a young woman and I love to watch people swim. I never learned how and I would love to learn but feel that I am too old.

          You’re never too old to learn how to swim! I bet they have lessons at a YMCA or something near you, you should go :)

          • 5

            You know, I probably can learn. There is a YWCA 2 miles from my home. I will look into it. When I was a kid I loved to roller skate and ice skate, just never got around to swimming. When I got married, I was pregnant every other year for 7 years. Thanks for the encouragement Anne

    I love seven layer dip!! Can’t wait to try out your recipe! The baby ‘bellas look awesome too!

  20. 24

    Anne – made the bean dip and the brie for 2 different events this weekend. Rave reviews by everyone!! And you’re right – no one knew the difference with the greek yogurt. I actually heated it up to melt the cheese and warm the refried beans. The yogurt and avocado didn’t hold up as well under the heat, but overall it was a good warm dip.
