Filled with creamy hummus, ground sirloin, and plenty of cheese, this warm Mexican Layered Hummus dip is a total crowd-pleaser and the ultimate party dip!
My boys are hummus fanatics. You know this by now. Guess what else they are? Ravenous little creatures who literally eat all day long.
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.
Luckily for them, I love hummus just as much as they do. And it’s all the more reason to create this warm, cheesy, Mexican layered hummus dip that requires as little as five simple ingredients.
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

How did it turn out??
Made this last night with Ground Turkey. It was so delicious dipped with carrot chips. It’s a do again for sure.
I’m so glad you enjoyed it!!
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!
Oh my gosh I’m so happy to hear you enjoyed it!! Taco inspired is the perfect flavor to use!! Yay!
I like the use of hummus in place of refried beans in this dip.
Liz this is absolutely fabulous. My kids would go bonkers for this dip. So would I. Such a gorgeous appetizer. Perfect for weekend dipping.
Aww thank you so much! My kids devoured it!!
Oh my gosh Liz our family could LIVE on this stuff for a week, fabulous dish, I love all the colors :)
Aww thank you so much!!

7 tacos? Hahaha. I love that. Don’t we all wish we could still do that or is that just me? ;) And what a fun dish!
I mean seriously…. who doesn’t want 7 tacos. ;)
Yum! Love this idea. I make a Mediterranean version with feta and other toppings that people love. I’ll take this one next time.
Yes!! I made a version like that for National Hummus Day last year! The options are really endless!
That looks great! Perfect for a summer party too.
It really is friend! Thank you!
That cheese shot! Drooool!
Right?? So good! Thanks lady!
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! :)
Yes ground turkey, pork, chicken, lamb- you name it!! I hope you love it!
