DIRECTIONS

  • Spread refried beans on a flat tostada shell if using. Top with cheese and chicken. Warm in microwave for a minute or two or under broiler until cheese is melted and chicken is warm.
  • Place each tostada on a plate and top with remaining ingredients. You can sprinkle with more cheese if desired.
  • Note: For authentic Mexican flare try this with Asadero which is similar to Monterrey Jack in place of the cheese blend and maybe even some crumbled Anejo- similar to a Romano cheese or Cotija - salty and dry similar to Parmesan.
