Chicken Tostada


When I was in college I went on one date. Some days I feel like such a loser when I say that. Aren't you supposed to date lots of guys? Yeah, not this girl. Antonio lived across the street from me and my roomates. He was tall, dark, handsome and older. He took it upon himself to introduce me to the best Authentic Mexican in Cache County. I don't remember where we went but it was good- not quite as good as his cooking though. He invited all of my roomates over one Sunday afternoon and made the most delicious Chicken Tostada's. I never got his recipe but at the store the other day I saw a package of Tostada's and instantly knew I wanted to imitate his recipe. Here's the version I came up with. It's pretty good if I do say so myself. Good enough that Jack slapped my arm and said "Oh my gosh this is so good" with his mouth full. Make it for your family and see if you get the same reaction.

Chicken Tostadas

4 cups shredded chicken
1 cup red enchilada sauce
2 Tbs. Brown sugar
Tostada shells
Refried Beans
Cheese
Lettuce
Tomato
Sour Cream
Guacamole
Ranch Dressing

In a saucepan mix enchilada sauce and brown sugar. When sugar is dissolved pour chicken in and mix. Let heat while you prepare other ingredients. Heat up refried beans, grate cheese, cut lettuce and dice tomatoes. Spread a generous helping of refried beans on your Tostada Shell. Top with cheese, chicken, lettuce, tomatoes and condiments. Eat with your hands.

  1. I've made tostadas before, but these were awesome. I made them for my parents and they loved them too. Gotta love those Latin men!
