Chicken breast (1 to 1 ½ breasts per person)
Cotija cheese (found w/the Mexican cheeses, it is a white Mexican cheese)
Pico or Salsa (optional)
Boil the chicken in water until chicken is no longer pink. Drain and with 2 forks begin shredding the chicken.
While the chicken is boiling cut up the lettuce, tomatoes, limes and crumble the Cotija cheese if it is not already.
To make the tostados the best way is to take a shell and place sour cream on the top (to hold the cheese and chicken) then sprinkle the cheese over the sour cream and add the shredded chicken. Next add the lettuce, tomatoes and Pico or salsa. Take 1 to 2 lime wedges and squeeze over the top.
They are messy to eat, but oh so delicious and easy to make!
