Chicken Tostadas

 I made these last Tuesday because it was Tostada Tuesday. Solely because I made tostadas and it was totally Tuesday.

One good thing about this recipe, besides the fact that it’s easy and delicious,  is that it can easily be adjusted to serve a big group of people or just two. If you are a vegetarian feel free to use black beans instead of the chicken.
