“Using a tasty Tex-Mex marinade, this tostada gives a decidedly different taste to ordinary tostadas. Placed on a corn tortilla bed, this would make an excellent BBQ party dish and can be folded over to make it kid friendly. You can also use an indoor grill pan making this a great year round dish!”

  2. Over medium high coals, grill chicken for 5 minutes on each side or until done.
  3. Transfer chicken to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes before cutting into strips.
  4. Lightly brush both sides of tortillas with vegetable oil. Grill on both sides for about one minute. Before removing from grill, sprinkle with cheese.
