Chicken Tostadas

Morsels of Life - Chicken Tostadas - Try these chicken tostadas - avocado and salsa on top of a crispy, crunchy tostada layered with cheesy goodness.

I've made various sorts of quesadillas over the years. One thing about quesadillas is they can get a bit soggy over time. I also saw tostadas for sale recently, so I thought about using those instead of regular tortillas. (Of course, I had to make my own. :P You can make them the same way as tortilla chips, just don't cut them beforehand.) I stayed pretty basic with these - just a bit of chicken, salsa, avocado, and of course, cheese. Give them a try and see what you think!

Do you prefer the crunchy open faced tostada or a soft quesadilla?
