Yield

4 servings (serving size: 2 tostadas)

Smoked paprika gives these chicken tostadas rich, grill-like flavor with no cooking. Look for tostada shells (fried, flat corn tortillas) near the flour and corn tortillas or in the Mexican food section of your grocery store. Serve with lime wedges.

Ingredients

  • 1 ripe peeled avocado
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons finely chopped tomato, divided
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh onion, divided
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon minced seeded jalapeño pepper
  • 2 cups shredded skinless, boneless rotisserie chicken breast
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 8 (6-inch) corn tostada shells
