BBQ Chicken Tostadas

by Laura

I am in love with these bbq chicken tostadas! They are like a cross between a tostada and a bbq chicken pizza. Both if which I love.

Usually when I make tostadas, I use those ready to use versions that they have at the grocery stores. You know, the ones that are a like a big round tortilla chip. Well, this time I made my own tostada shells with corn tortillas. Now let me tell you, it was so worth the extra effort to make my own tostada shells. I even add a little salt to one side when I bake them. They taste so much better. I don’t think I’ll ever buy those pre-made toastada shells again.
