Plant a forest of pita bread trees on your table in less than 30 minutes by topping wedges with store-bought guacamole.
Updated February 24, 2010

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.

  • 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.
