> 1 pack of 10 mini tortillas
> ½ cup taco sauce
> 2 cups tasty cheese, grated
> Cooking oil spray
> 6tsp sour cream
> Black olives
> 1 avocado, pitted
> 1 lemon
Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Line two oven trays with baking paper. Slice four mini tortillas into one centimetre strips. Spread taco sauce evenly over the remaining tortillas and sprinkle with grated tasty cheese.
Arrange tortilla strips on top of bases to resemble bandages, trimming if needed. Spray a little oil onto the mummies and bake for 8-10 minutes, until golden and cheese has melted, then set them aside to cool slightly.
Mash the avocado with a squeeze of lemon juice, seasoning with salt and pepper to taste. Spoon half teaspoons of sour cream, topped with small pieces of black olives, onto each mummy to form eyes. Serve with mashed avocado and extra sauce.
