1. Halve avocado; peel and pit. Mash with a fork in a medium-size bowl. Peel tomato and halve; seed one half, then chop fine; stir into avocado with onion, garlic, lemon juice, liquid red-pepper seasoning, salt and chili powder. Chill a half hour to season. Cut remaining half tomato into tiny triangles.

One at a time, pick up the tortilla quarters with 2 forks or 2 pairs of tongs so they are curved into U shapes, and immerse them in hot oil several seconds; lift out and drain on paper toweling.
3. Place a thin layer of shredded lettuce in each tortilla; top with a rounded teaspoonful avocado mixture; sprinkle with sieved egg yolk. Tuck a tiny tomato triangle into each end.
