Chicken Tostadas ~ with salsa fresco, guacamole, and cilantro lime sour cream

I had to revisit a few recipes today.  Chicken tostadas just sounded terrific and I figured I should test some of my posts just to make sure everything was as delicious as when I first made them.  I couldn’t have been happier with the results.  Perfectly seasoned, very spicy, full of flavor …. just the way I like it!

I started off with preparing my cilantro lime sour cream.

I then prepared the Salsa Fresco.  I did only use 1 half of the jalapeno as it was very large and I added a little extra tomato but the chunks were larger so ounce for ounce it was likely about the same.

I then prepared my Taco Seasoning for the chicken.

I haven’t posted my guacamole recipe; perhaps I shall do that tomorrow but here is a picture just to get the mouth-watering!

After all the prep work is done it’s time to cook the chicken.  I used 2 chicken breast which I thinly sliced.  Before cooking I tossed with the taco seasoning.

In a hot skillet with about 1 Tbs olive oil sauté the chicken for about 4 – 5 minutes until cooked through.  Squeeze about 1/2 a lime during the last minute of cooking.

Set aside and prepare corn shells for the tostadas.  I like to fry mine for about 1 minute, sprinkle with salt, and bake for 4 – 5 minutes in a 350 degree oven until nice and crispy. Build your tostadas as desired.

Cilantro Lime Sour Cream

I decided tostadas sounded good for dinner Sunday after a busy day.

I cooked some ground beef and seasoned with my taco seasoning recipe. I only wish I’d had some jalapeno on hand to make some Pico de Gallo to top it off, but alas I did not so I opted to infuse some extra flavor into the sour cream with some fresh lime and cilantro. I liked the freshness it added putting the cilantro in the sour cream and the lime of course was a perfect touch. I layered my fried and baked corn shells with the meat and bean combination, shredded cheese, cilantro lime sour cream, lettuce and tomato. Avocados would be delicious too but I was working with what I had in the house so top yours as desired!
