Tostadas de Pollo (Chipotle Chicken Tostadas)

Cuisine: Mexican
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 6 tostadas
These chicken tostadas are my favorite with chipotle sauce but you can make them any way that you want. There is no right or wrong way to make tostadas!

In a Mexican kitchen, nothing goes to waste. Yesterday’s chicken can be shredded and used as a topping for chicken tostadas, soups or salads. Tortillas can be toasted until crunchy and served with delicious toppings as they are here. They're incredibly easy to make, look great, and are so convenient to serve and eat as party food. So now you now: no more wasted food!

Tostadas are one of those foods that let you get creative. You can make them for breakfast, serve up a delicious vegetarian version with hummus, and so much more.  Let us know what your favorite tostada topping is in the comments!
