a couple times a week at home and out to eat! This meal is so
easy to to put together. Enjoy!

1 cup plus 2 tablespoons finely chopped tomato, divided
4 tablespoons minced fresh onion, divided

1 garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon cilantro
1 to 2 tablespoons minced jalapeno pepper
2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
8 (6 inch) corn tostada shells

1) Place avocado in a small bowl, mash with a fork, Stir in
2 tablespoons of tomato and 2 tablespoon onion, 1 tablespoon
lime juice and 1/4 teaspoon salt, pepper and garlic.
2) Combine remaining 1 cup tomato, 2 tablespoons of onion,
1 tablespoon lime juice, 1/4 teaspoon salt, cilantro, and jalapeno
toss well.

  9. I am going to have to try this.. we love mexican food too! In fact, we are having tostadas for dinner tonight. But I am making them with beef, next time I will have to try chicken, as that's what I prefer anyways.

  10. This is another recipe that sounds delish! The problem with all this is that I seem to always read your blog while I'm at work & of course when I'm here I immediately think of how I must try the recipe. Sadly, once I get home I'm back to the whole "I'll just let the hubby cook" thing!!
