Superbowl SuperDip

A dip that lets you ditch the chips! Single servings can be handed out to each in beer mugs, so no worries about careless superbowlers double and triple dipping.

I don’t use cheese in the layers, instead I use two layers of yogurt- one for the usual sour cream and the other for cheese. Believe me, you will not miss the usual suspects. Enjoy!


Special tools:.

Tall transparent beer mug to layer the dips.


  • 1/3 cup refried pinto beans
  • 2/3 cup drained yogurt
  • 1/3 cup (garbanzo) hummus
  • 1/3 cup guacamole
  • 1/4 cup salsa (1/2 cherry tomatoes, quartered or halved + 2 scallions chopped fine + 1 jalapeno, deseeded and diced + 2 tbsp minced cilantro + 1 tbsp lemon juice + dash of salt)


Carefully make the following layers of 1/3 cup each: beans, yogurt, hummus, yogurt, guacamole. Top with salsa.

Serve with chips or vegetable crudités.

Notes, hints, tips:
  1. To make the layers; carefully spoon the dip in the center of the glass and then push it out with the spoon. This will avoid trailing strands of dip in the sides.
  2. You can always use smaller portions with disposable transparent glass. A transparent container lets one see all that awaits the excited palate.
  3. Homemade refried pinto beans: soak beans overnight and cook the beans until soft and drain. Saute diced onions in a little oil; add a little of cumin powder + cayenne pepper + all-spice powder + cinnamon. Add 1 cup of cooked beans and 1 cup water. Cover and cook for 15 mins. Then cool and mash with a potato masher.
  4. Homemade hummus: You can use canned garbanzo beans or cook them from scratch (soak beans overnight and then cook till tender). Run through a processor with seasonings of your choice: garlic, sesame paste, cayenne etc.
  5. Homemade guacamole: For this dip you can uses just avocado and a little salt for seasoning and lime juice to avoid premature oxidation.
  6. You can substitute one of the layers of yogurt with cheese if you want- I would use goat cheese to surprise your palate.
