Recipe for Chicken Tostados
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 boneless skinless chicken thighs
1 8 oz bottle beer
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
3 large cloves fresh garlic, chopped
1 tbsp diced jalapeno pepper
1 cup fresh chopped cilantro
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tin niblets corn, drained
1 tin re-fried beans
Your favorite toppings… shredded cheese, sour cream, salsa, lettuce, tomatoes, green onion, avocado etc
Begin by placing the chicken in a crockpot that’s been treated with cooking spray or olive oil.
In a medium bowl, combine the beer, brown sugar, spices, and herbs and pour over the chicken.
Cook on the low setting for 6 – 8 hours.
When the chicken can be easily shredded with a fork, shred in the broth and add the niblets corn.
Remove to a bowl using a slotted spoon or colander, discard the extra broth or use as a soup base.
Brush 8 flour or corn tortilla shells on both sides with vegetable oil, place on baking sheets, and bake in a 400 degree oven for 3-5 minutes on one side until crispy, and 2-3 minutes on the other side.
To build the tostadas spread with a layer of re-fried beans and then top with generous amounts of the shredded chicken followed by shredded cheese, salsa, sour cream, lettuce, tomatoes, more cilantro, avocado – really the skies the limit – whatever you like – and then there’s nothing to do but enjoy.
