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.
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
How to Make It
Place avocado in a small bowl; mash with a fork. Stir in 2 tablespoons tomato, 1 tablespoon onion, 1 tablespoon juice, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and garlic.
Combine remaining 1 cup tomato, 2 tablespoons onion, 1 tablespoon lime juice, 1/4 teaspoon salt, cilantro, and jalapeño; toss well.
Combine chicken, remaining 1 tablespoon juice, and paprika; toss well to combine. Spread about 1 tablespoon guacamole over each tostada shell; top each with 1/4 cup chicken mixture and about 2 tablespoons salsa.
Great tostadas, but it takes Moore than 20 min. to shred the chicken & chop the veggies (unless you have some helping hands). The smoked paprika gives the chicken a grilled flavor; don't sub with regular paprika. The gauc. and tomato salsa were also nicely seasoned.
My family loved this. I used 6 chicken breasts I had on hand but cooked it in a crock pot for two hours on high with a jar of salsa (16 oz), 3T lime juice, 1 package of taco seasoning and 3T fresh cilantro. So delicious!
This recipe is awesome. The only thing I did different is just sliced my avocados instead of making guacamole. With the other ingredients (tomato, cilantro, onion, jalapeno), I made a pico and put it on top. This recipe is delicious!
This is a great recipe and I'll definitely make it again. It did take me longer than 20 minutes but I chopped up the chicken into smaller pieces than the picture displayed. I also substituted a can of chopped tomatoes with onions and thought it was just as good. My husband loved it! Tastes fresh and only 7 WW points.
