Chicken Tostada with Mango Salsa


Author Notes: 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
