Is the hustle and bustle of the holidays leaving you too tired to cook? I have a delicious solution for you…..Chicken Tostadas! Okay, it may seem a bit odd at first to call this a fast meal…..but it really is so easy to put together…..
especially if you use a rotisserie chicken and a jar of taco sauce. 😉 No, I do not create every single meal that I serve from scratch…..I am still human after all!! I have nights where I need something fast and delicious, and these Chicken Tostadas are my first choice. You may remember them from my guest post over at A LittleClaireification last September…..
Just heat the oil while shredding the chicken, then fry up the tortillas one at a time. Then heat the beans in a frying pan or microwave and voila, dinner is ready! As you can probably tell, I do not measure while I am assembling my tostadas. I just grab the ingredients and put them together.
Princess Cassi has never been a Mexican food lover, she actually refused to eat it…..ever! That all changed when she went to Texas with some friends a couple of years ago. All of a sudden she loves Mexican food…..go figure. She came home raving about this awesome chicken tostada she had, that she wanted me to recreate…..Challenge Accepted!
It took a couple of tries, but I finally received Cassi’s seal of approval. Enjoy!
