Grilled Chicken Tostadas

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by DailyInspiration

A Cooking Light recipe. Fried tortillas form the shells for most tostadas, but grilling lowers the fat. Bottled salsa and canned beans make this recipe a snap to prepare.

Excellent tostada. I cut the amount back to 1 serving which made enough for 1 big tostada for me. lol. I switched the cheese to cheddar as thats what I had and used a regular green salad mix as, again, it's what I had in the house. Still. the outcome was delicious and I like not frying the tortilla, you just have to watch carefully to make sure it doesn't burn (my first try did). I really do miss Mex and Tex-Mex up here in Canada but not everything is easily available and I usually do without so this was a real treat on a number of levels. Now that I have this yummy recipe I'll be making these a lot more often. Made for Fiesta Tag.
