How to Make Bruschetta Chicken Tostadas


  1. In a small bowl, combine the cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, ground coriander, smoked paprika and a pinch of salt and pepper.
  2. Toss to combine and rub all over diced chicken. Let sit in the fridge for a little bit.
  3. In another bowl, combine the tomatoes, red onion, half the minced garlic, half the minced cilantro and 3 Tablespoon of oil.
  4. Season with salt and pepper. Let it marry while you cook.
  5. Heat the remaining 3 Tablespoons of oil in a sauté pan.
  6. Add the chicken and sauté until cooked through and you see a little browning all over.
  7. Heat the beans in a small saucepan with the remaining garlic and cilantro.
  8. Drizzle a little oil and a pinch of salt.
  9. Heat through. Mash a few beans if you want. Oh, you want.
  10. Meanwhile, in a food processor, combine the avocado, sour cream, loose cilantro, lime juice and a pinch of salt.
  11. Blend until smooth and glorious and you think about using is as night moisturizer.
  12. To assemble:
    Spread some black beans on each tostada shell.
  13. Top with shredded cheese, cooked chicken, the tomato topping and a healthy drizzle of the avo-cream.
  14. DIVE.IN.
  15. NOTE:
    The chicken can be grilled and then diced for a more smoky flavor.
