8 tostada shells
1 16-ounce can refried beans
2 10-ounce packages fully cooked grilled chicken-breast strips
2 cups shredded romaine lettuce
1/2 cup sour cream (optional)
3/4 cup fresh salsa
1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded Mexican cheese blend (or Monterey Jack or Cheddar)


Heat oven to 225° F. Wrap the tostada shells in foil. Place in oven until warm, about 6 minutes.

Meanwhile, warm the beans in a small pan over medium-low heat. Place the chicken in a nonstick skillet and warm over medium heat, turning once, for 4 minutes.

Place 2 tostada shells on each plate. Divide the beans, chicken, lettuce, sour cream (if using), salsa, and cheese among the tostadas.
