Low FODMAP Spooky Graveyard 7-Layer Dip
Our Low FODMAP 7-Layer Dip was a huge success way back at the beginning of the summer, but really, 7-Layer dip is welcomed all year round. I happened upon this Halloween version at Chickabug and I knew I had to make one that we could all enjoy.
Voila! Our Low FODMAP Spooky Graveyard 7-Layer Dip! It features our very own Low FODMAP Guacamole.
That’s right! You CAN have avocado! In the right portions, of course.
7 Layers of Deliciousness
Our 7- Layer Dip has all the layers of yummy, dip-able flavors that you (and your chips) crave. The only changes we have made for this seasonal Low FODMAP Spooky Graveyard 7-Layer Dip is that we have made the salsa the top layer, with a scattering of scallion greens, and then created the tombstones and a graveyard tree from cut-to-shape brown rice tortillas, toasted till golden. Writing on them is as easy as buying and using a black edible pen (from the craft store).
Make this with the kids! This makes a great party centerpiece. If you are traveling with it, wait until you arrive to assemble the graveyard scene, and in any event, put those tortilla pieces in place right before serving.
Makes LOTS of servings; serving size is approximately 2 tablespoons worth. Just take 2 chips, dig in and enjoy!
How Big Is YOUR Cemetery?
This Low FODMAP Spooky Graveyard 7-Layer Dip can be made small, medium or large and is only constrained by your needs and the size of your “graveyard”, or bowl.
I bought a disposable black coffin at the craft store, but you could use any kind of long, low, oblong shape. A 2-quart (2 L) casserole dish works well. But you can scale the ingredients up or down as needed. Just make sure to keep your serving size to about 2 tablespoons.
We have altered the order of the layers from our original version to create the smoothest topping to create the nicest looking “graveyard” scene.
The spiders, skeleton, bugs and bats are plastic and were found at the dollar store. They are not low FODMAP (or high FODMAP) LOL. Please do not eat and perhaps if you are serving at a party where there will be small children, do not include.

Low FODMAP Spooky Graveyard 7-Layer Dip
Our Low FODMAP Spooky Graveyard 7-Layer Dip has all the familiar flavors you crave - assembled a little differently to create an unforgettable seasonal treat.
Low FODMAP Serving Size Info: Makes LOTS of servings; serving size is approximately 2 tablespoons worth. Just take 2 chips, dig in and enjoy!
- 2, 8 to 10- inch (20 cm to 25 c) low FODMAP brown rice tortillas
- Nonstick spray
- Black edible black pen
- 3 cups (720 g) lactose-free sour cream
- 2 cups (100 g) very finely shredded iceberg lettuce
- 6 ounces (170 g) shredded cheddar (we used a blend of white and orange)
- 2 medium plum tomatoes, cored and diced
- 1/2 cup (60 g) sliced black olives
- 2 cups (480 ml) guacamole
- 2, 16- ounce (453 g each) jars low FODMAP salsa
- 1/4 cup (16 g) chopped scallions, green parts only
- Plastic Halloween toys as desired
Position rack in middle of oven. Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C.
Cut out the tree and tombstone shapes from the flour tortillas. I traced shapes with an edible pen first for the tree, to help. Lightly spray the pieces with nonstick spray and place on baking sheet pan. Bake for about 5 to 10 minutes or until lightly tinged with color. Cool completely on pan on rack. Use edible black pen to write whatever you like on the stones. Set aside.
If your salsa is very liquidy, set a wire-mesh strainer over a bowl and pour the salsa into the strainer to drain for about 5 minutes. You want some of the liquid to drain away.
Take your “graveyard” container of choice and assemble your ingredients: spread the sour cream evenly all over the bottom, then scatter the lettuce on top and gently press down into the lactose free sour cream. Top with cheddar cheese then tomatoes and olives. Spread the guacamole all over the top; it should reach from edge to edge to create a base for the salsa. Gently spoon the salsa all over the top. The Low FODMAP Spooky Graveyard 7-Layer Dip can be held for a few hours at this point in the refrigerator; after about 4 hours it can become watery, so plan accordingly. Right before serving, sprinkle scallion greens here and there and place the tree and gravestones, gently pressing down into the “soil”.
Serve with low FODMAP corn chips and wait for the oohs and aahs.
