Chicken Tostadas
by Chef Todd Leonard, CEC
Prep time: 45 min
Serves 12
Ingredients Instructions
Tostada Filling:
3 c. THRIVE™ Seasoned Chicken Slices (FD)
1 c. THRIVE™ Green Bell Peppers (FD)
1 c. THRIVE™ Red Bell Peppers (FD)
1 c. onion slices (1 inch long)
1 tbsp. garlic, minced
½ tsp. chili powder
½ tsp. cumin
1 tsp. THRIVE™ Chef's Choice Seasoning Blend
1 tbsp. Cholula hot sauce
1 tbsp. THRIVE™ Cilantro (FD)
12 tostada shells

Refried Beans:
2 c. THRIVE™ Instant Pinto Beans
¼ c. THRIVE™ Chopped Onions (FD)
½ tbsp. THRIVE™ Chef's Choice Seasoning Blend
½ tbsp. THRIVE™ Peppercorn Seasoning Blend
1 tsp. THRIVE™ Chicken Bouillon
3 c. water
1 tbsp. lime juice

Cilantro Cream:
1 c. THRIVE™ Sour Cream, reconstituted
½ c. sour cream, fresh
¼ c. THRIVE™ Cilantro (FD)
2 tbsp. THRIVE™ Chopped Spinach (FD)
tbsp. THRIVE™ Chef's Choice Seasoning Blend
¼ tbsp. THRIVE™ Peppercorn Seasoning Blend
½ tsp. chili powder
½ tsp. cumin
½ tsp. THRIVE™ Iodized Salt
1 tbsp. Cholula hot sauce
In a medium size saucepan combine all ingredients for beans except lime juice and cook until liquid is mostly gone. Puree with hand blender or food processor until desired texture. Add lime juice before serving. In a blender, blend all the cilantro cream ingredients until smooth. Best if refrigerated 1 hour before serving.
Reconstitute chicken and peppers by placing in a small bowl and barely covering with cool water. Allow to stand 5 minutes (no need to drain). In a skillet on high heat, sauté onions and garlic. Add chicken mixture and sauté together. Season with remaining ingredients.
Spread refried beans on each tostada shell, add chicken mixture, then top with cilantro cream. Add other toppings as desired, like THRIVE cheese, shredded lettuce, guacamole, and THRIVE salsa.
