Great tasting way to make tostadas using leftover chicken. The added spices blended nicely with the enchilada sauce for a taste that was flavorful but not too spicy. I also added some diced onions to the chicken mixture as suggested. I used some leftover grilled chicken and purchased tostada shells.

This is a great way to use leftover chicken. I like adding all that flavor with lemon juice, chili powder, cumin, and enchilada sauce. I did use store bought fried corn torillas to make this dinner even easier. Made for Spring PAC 08, thanks for posting.
