How to Make Easy chicken tostados

Step-by-Step

  1. In a food processor, process the beans until smooth.
  2. Put beans in a large saucepan, mix with 1 tsp chili powder, 1/2 tsp cumin, salsa and chillies. Heat until bubbling, then set aside.
  3. In a lightly greased skillet, place chicken, then sprinkle with remaining cumin and chili powder and heat over low heat, stirring until warm.
  4. Spread the bean mixture over a tostado, then top with chicken, cheese and tomatoes in that order. Repeat until all tostados are used. Place on a baking sheet and put into preheated, 350 degree oven for about two minutes or until cheese melts.
  5. Remove from oven, sprinkle each tostado with lettuce and top with sour cream.
