Chicken and Chorizo Tostadas

Chicken and Chorizo Tostadas are a brilliant way to create a tasty alternative to fajitas using much of the same ingredients

Method

  1. Place the chicken breasts in to a lightly oiled baking tray
  2. Coat the chicken with a generous sprinkle of Fajita seasoning and cover with foil
  3. Bake in a pre-heated oven (180°c) for approximately 20 minutes or until cooked through
  4. Remove chicken from the oven and allow to cool a little before shredding with a fork
  5. In a bowl mix the chorizo, oil, garlic, cumin and a pinch of salt and marinate for a few minutes
  6. Add the chorizo mix to a hot frying pan and fry off for 2-3 minutes until the chorizo starts to crisp
  7. Cut 2 x 5" rounds from each of the tortillas and keep to one side
  8. Place the tortilla rounds under the grill for a minute to colour
  9. To build the tostadas spoon some of the chorizo mix on to the tortilla round and top with a little shredded chicken
  10. Squeeze a little lime juice over the chicken and garnish with sliced red onion, red pepper, avocado, and a spoon of refried bean mix
  11. Finally add tomato, coriander and a drizzle of sour cream to finish
  12. Serve with side dishes of sour cream and a fresh tomato, red onion and lime salsa
