How do I make it?

  1. For the salsa, mix all ingredients into a bowl and set aside.

  3. Form the mixture into thin fritters and cook in a non-stick pan over a medium-high heat for 1-2 minutes each side. Drain the excess oil on a paper towel.
  4. Build your stack by placing smashed avocado salsa inbetween each fritter – place about 3-4 fritters on top of each other.
