1/1 Photo of Chicken Fajita Tostadas
This recipe can dress up or down. Use the tostada crowns for a dressy company dish, flat shells for everyday. Use canned black beans (rinsed) for dressy, canned refried beans for everyday. Make dressing from scratch (listed) or use commerical vinegrette. Remember to marinate the chicken earlier in the day, or overnight, for best flavor (not included in cooking times).
