You will need:

  • 20 tostitos scoops (tortilla chips)
  • 1 big ripe avocado
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • lemon juice (as per your taste)
  • diced capsicum for garnish
  • sour cream optional

A very easy and last minute preparation, no efforts or time needed. All you have to do is to layer the ingredients in the tostitos scoops. Starting with the sour cream, (if you decided to put), then guacamole and finally garnish with the finely diced red capsicum. To make the guacamole, puree the avocado, roughly with a fork, (when it’s really ripe, you don’t need more than a fork to mash it) and mix it with garlic salt and lemon juice. Adjust the ingredients as per your taste, condiments are always subjective.
