Byron Bay Chilli Co | Aztec Calendar Ingredients

  • 1 300g BBCC Smoky Red Bean Salsa

  2. Spread guacamole over that, leaving a small border of salsa and sprinkle with shredded cheese. 
  3. Arrange shredded lettuce like spokes of a wheel and fill in alternating wedges with olives, tomatoes and spring onions.

  5. Tuck corn chips around the outer edge.
