Chicken Tostados


A KRAFT recipe I got years ago...and I'm still lovin' it! It takes like 20-30 min. My kind of recipe!

6-8 corn tortillas
1 pkt taco seasoning
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1/2 cup water
1 1/2 cups chopped tomatoes (divided)
2 cups shredded cheddar (divided)
sour cream
chopped cilantro

PREHEAT oven to 400. Place tortillas in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Spray tortillas with cooking spray; sprinkle with 1 tsp. of the taco seasoning mix. Bake 7-8 min or until crisp and golden brown. (I don't always sprinkle them with the mix...It's good, but doesn't make a huge difference...I like to take short cuts where I can.)

MEANWHILE, mix chicken, remaining seasoning mix and the water in large skillet. Bring to a boil on medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 5 min or until chicken is cooked through, stirring occasionally. Add 1 cup of tomatoes. Cook until heated through, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in 1 1/2 cups of cheese.

SPOON chicken mixture evenly over tortillas. Top with remaining cheese, tomatoes, sour cream and cilantro.
