Ingredients

  • 1 large white onion sliced
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Avocados from Mexico halved pitted, peeled and mashed
  • 2 cups rotisserie chicken breast meat shredded
  • 3/4 cup salsa verde green tomatillo salsa
  • 8 pre-made hard shell tostadas Juice of one lime
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 medium red tomatoes diced
  • 2 green onions sliced
  • 1/2 cup cilantro leaves

Instructions

  1. In a large skillet over medium high heat combine the sliced onions and extra virgin olive oil.
  2. Sauté the onions until they become soft and translucent.
  3. While the onions are cooking, prepare your mashed avocados by combining in a small mixing bowl with the lime juice and salt.
  4. Set aside.
  5. Once the onions are soft, reduce the heat to low and add the shredded chicken and salsa verde.
  6. Stir to combine, and continue cooking until the chicken and salsa have warmed.
  7. Make your tostadas by spreading 1/4 cup of your mashed avocado mixture on each tostada, then top with 1/2 cup of the chicken-onion-salsa mixture.
  8. Finish each tostada by topping with a 1/4 cup of diced avocado, a spoonful of diced tomato, a few green onion slices and a few cilantro leaves.
  9. This recipe uses pre-cooked rotisserie chicken breast meat to reduce the prep time to less than 20 minutes from start to finish.
