  2. Mix avocados, lime juice, 3 tbsp. sour cream or alternative and salt. Set aside. (Hint: sour cream will make guacamole more spreadable. If in a hurry, use your favourite packaged guacamole.)
  3. Mix sour cream and 2 tbsp. of milk or alternative and set aside.
  4. Assemble each layer, beginning with refried beans and ending with guacamole.
  5. To make the field lines, put sour cream in Ziploc bag and cut small hole in the corner. (Hint: to make sour cream easier to pipe, first mix with splash of milk or dairy alternative.)
