  • Salt
  • 1 whole boneless, skinless chicken breast, pounded flat and thin
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • Juice of a lime
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Refried beans:
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 can black, pinto or red beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Toppings:

  • Chopped tomatoes
  • Chopped red onion
  • 1 cup grated Monterey jack
  • Cilantro leaves
  • Creamy salsa:
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
Directions
  • In a large skillet heat oil over medium high heat. Carefully place corn tortilla in hot oil and fry until crisp, flipping the tortilla once. Remove to a paper towel to drain. Season with salt. Cook off remaining tortillas.

  • In a glass dish combine chicken, garlic, lime juice, chili powder, oregano and olive oil. Let chicken marinate for 15 minutes.

  • Heat oil in a heavy saucepan and cook onions until tender. Add beans and water and bring to a simmer. Stir beans and stir occasionally. Beans are done when they begin to clump together in one mass. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Heat grill, broiler or cast iron grill pan and cook chicken breasts for 4 minutes per side or until cooked through. Slice chicken in thin slices and keep warm. In a small bowl mix together the salsa and sour cream and chill. To assemble tostado: Evenly layer beans, lettuce, tomatoes, chicken slices, red onion, cheese, and cilantro on top of each tostado (crisped tortilla) and serve immediately. Garnish with creamy salsa and cilantro.
