Plant a forest of pita bread trees on your table in less than 30 minutes by topping wedges with store-bought guacamole.

Ingredients

4
flavored or plain pita folds or pita (pocket) breads (about 6 inches in diameter)
16
thin pretzel sticks, halved
1/2
cup fat-free sour cream
1/2
cup guacamole
2
tablespoons finely chopped parsley
1/4
teaspoon garlic-pepper blend
1/4
cup very finely chopped red bell pepper

Steps

  • 1 Cut each pita fold into 8 wedges. Insert pretzel stick half into center of bottom of each wedge to form "tree trunk."
  • 2 In small bowl, mix sour cream, guacamole, parsley and garlic-pepper blend. Spread about 1 teaspoon sour cream mixture on each pita wedge.
  • 3 Blot bell pepper with paper towel to remove excess moisture. Sprinkle about 1/4 teaspoon bell pepper on each wedge or arrange to form a garland. If desired, cover and refrigerate up to 8 hours before serving.

Expert Tips

For variety, use cilantro in place of the parsley.

If you have time, make your own guacamole. Simply mash a ripe avocado and throw in a dash of salt, lime juice and chopped garlic.
