Chicken avocado tostadas

Hey guys! So anyone who knows me knows that I love to cook!! However, being a student athlete does not always allow enough time for me to be chef Jenn in the kitchen. So lately I have been cooking some very tasty meals that take a short amount of time to prepare. One of my favorites has become these chicken avocado tostadas. It only takes 25 minutes to make. It does require a lot of ingredients but all the ingredients are common and easy to find. This recipe is basically homemade guacamole, shredded chicken, homemade pico de gallo all piled onto a tostada shell. Here are the ingredients necessary to make this delicious meal for four people (2 tostadas each).


1 ripe peeled avocado

1 cup plus 2 tablespoons chopped tomato

3 tablespoons minced onion

3 tablespoons lime juice

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp minced garlic

1 tablespoon chopped cilantro

1 tablespoon minced jalapeno

2 cups of shredded rotisserie chicken

1/4 tsp paprika

8 tostada shells


1) place peeled avocado in a small bowl and mash. Add 2 tablespoons tomato, 1 tablespoon onion, 1 tablespoon lime juice, 1/4 tsp salt, and 1 tsp garlic

2) in a separate bowl, combine remaining 1 cup tomato, 2 tablespoons onion, 1 tablespoon lime juice, 1/4 tsp salt, cilantro and jalapeno.

3) In a third bowl, combine chicken, remaining 1 tablespoon lime juice, and paprika.

*In order to save a lot of time try to buy pre chopped onion and tomato and buy the canned minced jalapenos. You can buy a rotisserie chicken hot and ready at the store.

Once the homemade guacamole and pico are made and the chicken is ready to go all you do is take a tostada shell, spread some guacamole on it, add a layer of shredded chicken and top it off with pico de gallo. Yum!!
