Directions

For the parfaits, combine beans and salsa in a bowl; set aside. Whisk together sour cream, cilantro, zest, cumin, and coriander in a bowl until combined; season with salt and set aside. Mash avocados, lime juice, and garlic until no large chunks remain; season with salt and set aside. Transfer bean, sour-cream, and avocado mixtures into separate resealable plastic bags. Snip off a corner of each bag. Squeeze some of each mixture into 12 two-ounce shot glasses, starting with the bean mixture and ending with the avocado mixture. For the toppings, sprinkle Cheddar, tomatoes, scallions, and olives on each parfait. Cover and refrigerate parfaits at least 4 hours. For the tortilla strips, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Fry tortilla strips until golden; transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate and season with salt. Place a few tortilla strips in each parfait just before serving. Garnish each parfait with a lime slice. Serve parfaits with additional fried tortilla strips or purchased tortilla chips.
