The other day my son ate seven tacos, two avocados worth of guacamole, a huge bowl of beans and three additional homemade tortillas. About four minutes after leaving the dinner table, he returned only to ask me for a bowl of popcorn. You can’t make this stuff up, folks.

This dip is a fun twist on the traditional seven layer dip. It’s a protein-packed, stick-to-your-ribs kind of dip. In addition, it also makes the perfect appetizer. In fact, this dish is great with my easy homemade Baked Corn Tortilla Chips.

Preparing Mexican Layered Hummus Dip

This tasty appetizer is incredibly easy to make and comes together in less than 30 minutes. It’s as simple as browning the meat, adding the hummus, baking to cheesy perfection, and garnishing with your favorite toppings.


For toppings, I love to mix textures like diced tomatoes with crunchy red onions, but it will taste great with whatever you have on hand. If you love avocado, add it! Not a fan of cilantro? Skip it! For this recipe I used scallions, tomatoes, and crumbled cotija cheese

  1. Made this last night with Ground Turkey. It was so delicious dipped with carrot chips. It’s a do again for sure.

  2. I just made this for a family get together. I was skeptical about eating hot hummus, that doesn’t sound appetizing. However, it was AMAZING! Everyone (even the picky kids) loved it. It reminded me of retried beans in the best way. I already sent the recipe to everyone in attendance. My store was out of the two hummus’ listed, but they had “taco inspired” Sabra which I’d never seen before so I used one container of that and one container of original. Turned out awesome. Thanks!

  3. OMG looks so delicious! Anything with hummus makes me happy, I have it almost every day! Would ground turkey be an okay sub for the sirloin? I don’t eat red meat but I still eat poultry. This will DEFINITELY be making an appearance at my Memorial Day party this year! :)
