The other night I tried something new.. Chicken Tostadas With Green Salsa & Chipotle! 🙂

To make the tostadas, I fried tortillas in a small amount of vegetable oil, in a non stick skillet until crisp. I then set them aside in a warming pan.

I then placed chicken chunks in a pan with chicken stock and garlic, and sprinkled some ground cumin. I brought it to a boil, then reduced the heat and cooked it for 1-2 minutes or until the chicken turned opaque. I removed the chicken from the heat and let stand in its hot liquid.

I then placed the crisp tostadas on a plate, sprinkled cheddar cheese all over it. I then removed the chicken from the hot liquid and divide it amongst the tostadas. I topped the chicken with fresh chopped cilantro, diced tomatoes, a handful of chopped romaine lettuce, thinly sliced scallions, sliced avocado, sour cream and a little bit of chipotle chiles. Yum!

Note: If you like beans, you can heat beans in a separate pan with enough water to form a smooth puree. This can be spread on the warm tostadas before adding the chicken.
