Tostadas Recipe

This is a nice summer finger-food recipe.  Adjust the ingredients to your taste.  I like to prepare it just to the point of decorating, and let my dinner guests finish their own.


Vegetable oil
1/2 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 cups cooked chicken breast (use canned if you’re in a hurry)
3 chipotle chiles (you can use canned here too if needed)
1 cup tomato puree
1 tbsp oregano
1 can refried beans
farmer’s cheese, crumbled
Tostadas (fried, flat corn tortillas)
sour cream
chopped clinatro
chopped scallions (green onions)

Saute onion and garlic in vegetable oil until soft.  Add chicken.

Puree the chipotle peppers and the tomato puree in blender.  Pour over chicken, add oregano and cook for 10 minutes over low heat.

Warm the refried beans in a sauce pan.  Spread over tostadas.  Add a layer of chicken.  Next, add a layer of cheese.  Then garnish with a dolop of sour cream and chopped scallions and or cilantro.
