Quick Chicken Tostadas Recipe
Picking up prepared foods, like a rotisserie chicken, and combining them with fresh items produces a great meal in minutes.
Assemble these tostadas for a crunchy, savory and amazingly fast dinner.
Make your own tostadas by brushing corn tortillas with a bit of oil first, then baking them in a 400°F oven, flipping once, until crisp.
8 tostadas (crispy whole corn tortillas)
1 cup refried beans
12 ounces shredded rotisserie chicken meat
1 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced into wedges
1 cup grated pepper jack cheese
1 cup thinly sliced romaine lettuce
1 cup chunky salsa or diced tomatoes
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Arrange tostadas on a baking sheet in a single layer and bake until hot, 3 to 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat beans and chicken separately in small pots (individually) til hot.
Spread tostadas with beans, then top with avocado slices, chicken, cheese, lettuce and salsa and serve immediately.
