Tasty Tuesday #57

By 12:00 AM

Hey guys! I'm back again with another Tasty Tuesday!

I do alter my recipes to fit my own tastes, so please also feel free to refer back to the original recipe at the bottom of the post to see what I may have eliminated.

 Most of my recipes are Weight Watcher friendly, but don't let that scare you away. They are actually really good. I've also found some great websites like Skinny Kitchen and Skinny Taste that I use a lot too. Most of my recipes have some kick to them, so if you are not a big spicy person, adjust the spices to better fit your tastes. OH. And all of the meals I cook are really easy to prepare. I'm not big on difficult meals.
 
Today I am featuring:
 
Loaded "Nacho" Chicken Tostada
 
 
 
Ingredients:
 
-4 tostada shells
-1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
-1/2 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese
-1/2 cup mashed avocado (about 1 small)
-1 medium lime, halved
-1 cup chopped tomato
-1/4 cup chopped white onion
-2 tbsp. chopped cilantro
-7 oz. cooked boneless chicken breast
-salt and pepper to taste
-a dollop of sour cream
 
Directions:
 
1. In a small bowl, combine the cheeses.
 
2. In another small bowl, combine avocado, juice from half the lime, and salt.
 
3. In a third bowl, combine tomatoes, onion, cilantro, juice from other lime half, and some salt and pepper to taste.
 
4. To assemble: layer each tostada with 1/3 cup of chicken, and 2 and 1/2 tbsp. cheese. (That seemed like a lot to me, so I just sprinkled a decent amount). Broil (or grill) for 2-3 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Top each with a dollop of avocado and sour cream and a spoonful of the tomato salsa.
 
*I seasoned and grilled the chicken breast on a grill pan after chopping up all the veggies.*
 
Notes:
 
I paired this with cilantro-lime rice and a small salad as you can see from the picture above.
 
Serving Size: 1 tostada
Serves: 4
Cook Time: 10-15 minutes (including grilling chicken)
WW+: 8
Rating: 5 stars. I LOVED this!
