Avocado & Chicken Tostadas

There are many tostada recipes out there. This recipe is not your typical tostada recipe but it's just plain easy and good. My mom used to make us a corn tortilla with cheese and she would put them in the oven until the cheese melted and the tortilla got nice and crispy. They were a great snack and I haven't forgotten them.

I posted these so you could see how easy it is to make a simple lunch or dinner. They have these crispy tortilla shells that you can buy at the grocery store. I found some that are cooked in coconut oil which is even better. I mashed up some avocado, topped with cheese and added rotisserie chicken, lettuce and tomato. Basically things I had on hand. You could put refried beans, cheese, hamburger meat and any toppings you like. Kids really like them with just cheese.

Easy Chicken Tostadas

Pre-cooked tostadas
Rotisserie chicken
Ripe avocado, mashed
Shredded cheese, your choice
Shredded lettuce
Tomato, chopped

I didn't list any amounts because it's pretty much up to you.

Preheat your broiler on high. Take a tortilla shell and gently spread the smashed avocado over it. Add the cheese. Place in the broiler and allow the cheese to melt. Watch closely...doesn't take long. Remove from oven and add chicken, salsa, lettuce and tomato and any other toppings you like. Enjoy!
