Chicken Tostadas

These were sooooo deliciously good. And easy. And they're low-cal too.

IMG_0748

What you need:
3 cups shredded chicken
1 14 oz can of diced tomatoes with chiles
1 medium onion diced
1 avocado
1/4 cup salsa
2 tbsp sour cream
2 tbsp fresh cilantro chopped
1 cup shredded lettuce
1/2 cup Monterey Jack cheese (which we left out to save even more calories)
8 tostada shells or 8 corn tortillas*

*It's healthier to make your own tostada shells. Coat both sides with cooking spray and put on a cookie sheet in the oven at 375 for 10 minutes, turning once during cooking to brown both sides.

What to do:
1. Bring tomatoes to a boil over medium heat. Add onion and cook for 15ish minutes until the onions are soft. Add chicken and heat through, 1 to 2 minutes.
2. Mash avocado in a bowl. Stir in cilantro, salsa, and sour cream.
3. To assemble the tostadas, spread each crisped tortilla with some of the avocado mixture. Top with lettuce, chicken mixture, and cheese.

Enjoy!

  15. yep! those look delish! i'm just wondering if your oven method makes the tortillas as crispy as actually frying them. sounds like a good idea. just visiting from remodelaholic
