    Line a 12-inch platter with the shredded lettuce. Stir together black beans, sweet pepper, and green onions. Spoon on top of lettuce, leaving a lettuce border. Dollop sour cream on top of bean mixture; gently spread in a smooth layer atop beans, leaving a border. Sprinkle with jalapeno peppers and lime peel.

    Drain excess liquid from salsa. Stir in avocado; spoon on top of sour cream layer, leaving a border. Sprinkle cheese on top. Top with a layer of chopped ripe olives and sprinkle with cilantro or parsley, if desired. Serve immediately or cover and chill for up to 6 hours. Serve with Homemade Tortilla Chips or purchased chips. Makes about 32 appetizer servings.

    Homemade Tortilla Chips: Cut ten 6-inch flour tortillas into wedges. Place in single layers on ungreased baking sheets. Bake in a 350 degree F. oven about 10 to 15 minutes or until dry and crisp.
