I am loving my garden this summer. I've had cucumbers, zucchini, green peppers, tomatoes, and eggplant in abundance. I've been making a lot of recipes this year with fresh summer veggies because I can just run outside and grab them. I was looking forward to making this tostada because not only is it Mexican, but it's full of chicken and vegetables. All I had to make as a side dish was rice.
The tortilla gets golden brown and crisp. The chicken, vegetables, and cheese melt into each other and have a slightly spicy and fresh taste to them. I ate two of these tostadas and felt full but not stuffed. It was the perfect summer meal that was quick to make after my zumba class.
