I saw a photo of this on the cover of Pillsbury's Holiday Appetizers Book and couldn't wait to use them at my Christmas party! I'll post a photo after I make them....

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 pita pockets
  • 16 thin pretzel sticks, halved
  • 12 cup nonfat sour cream
  • 12 cup guacamole
  • 2 tablespoons parsley, finely chopped
  • 14 teaspoon garlic pepper seasoning
  • 14 cup red bell pepper, finely chopped


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