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.
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6-oz. each)
- 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

- 6 cups packaged coleslaw mix
- 1 (7 ounce) can green chili salsa
- 4 cups tomatoes, chopped
- 1⁄4 cup ripe olives, sliced
- 1 1⁄4 cups fat-free refried beans (I prefer black bean)
- 1⁄2 cup feta cheese, crumbed (or cotija cheese)

- Prepare grill, or heat a grill pan over medium-high heat.

Cool slightly. Cut chicken into 1/4 inch strips; set aside. Place tortillas on grill rack or grill pan coated with cooking spray; grill 30 seconds on each side or until golden brown.

- Spread about 1 tablespoons beans over each tortilla; divide chicken evenly among tortillas.
