Step 1: Gather all ingredients for the avocado mousse. In making the mouse you may use a food processor for smooth and well combined avocado mousse.

Step 6: In a bowl, pipe the avocado mousse. Place the halved avocado on top of the mousse. Garnish the avocado with sauteed white sesame seeds, black sesame seeds, and tortilla powder (blend a corn tortilla chip). Fill the avocado hole with marinated cherry tomatoes.
