Tom and I love Mexico, it's people and their cuisine. We cook quite a few Mexican or Tex-Mex dishes and truthfully we can't quite cook authentic Mexican cuisine, so it's mostly Cal-Mex. But it is delicious. This is our version of a Chicken Tostada served with Mango Salsa for two people. The Prep time is less than thirty minutes. —Tom and Anita Morgan

  • Serves 2
  • For the tostada
  • 2 small or medium tortillas, wheat or corn
  • 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 1/2 red bell pepper
  • 1 small avocado
  • 3/4 cup Mexican cheese or cheddar, grated large
  • For the Mango Salsa
  • 1 Ataulfo mango, skinned, seeded and chopped
  • 1/4 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 green onions
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro
  • 1 green jalapeno, seeded and chopped small
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice (usually 1 lime)
  • zest from 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 pinches red pepper flakes
In This Recipe
  1. Saute the chicken, shredding in the pan with a SS spatula-cooks faster. Let cool and cut as needed. Spread the grated cheese on the tortilla, add the chicken and warm in 350*F oven until cheese melts. Place the avocado and red pepper on the tostada and add a scoop of salsa in the middle. Then serve.
  2. Mix ingredients in a ceramic, glass or stainless steel bowl. Cover, refrigerate and let age for at least 30 minutes before serving. Let warm to room temperature before serving.
