Loaded Nacho Chicken Tostada

Healthy Loaded Nacho Chicken  Tostada
Cook's Notes: A great way to take nachos and turn them into a main dish. They are easy and loaded with chicken, black beans, topped with cheese, tomatoes, fresh avocado and under 300 calories. Recipe makes 4 tostadas and adapted from skinnytaste.com
Ingredients:
  • 4 tostada shells
  • 3/4 cup reduced fat shredded Mexican blend cheese (I used Sargento)
  • 1 large avocado. peeled and diced 
  • 1 medium lime, halved
  • Kosher salt
  • 1-1/2 cups chopped grape tomatoes
  • 1/3 cup chopped white onion
  • 2 TB. chopped cilantro
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, diced or cubed
  • 3 TB. your favorite salsa 
  • 1/3 cup canned drained black beans, rinsed
  • 1 jalalpeno, sliced thin
  • 2 TB. sliced black olives
Directions: 
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  • In a bowl, combine avocado, juice from half the lime, and a pinch of salt. Set aside. 
  • Mix chicken with salsa and add in tomatoes, black beans, onion, cilantro,  ¼ teaspoon salt and black pepper, to taste.
  • Divide mixture among 4 tostadas. Add avocado mixture and sprinkle with cheese. 
  • Place on baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes or until warmed and cheese is melted. 
  •  Top each with jalapeno and black olives. 
Bring back the lost art of handwritten notes and send someone a note of gratitude.
