Thursday: Rotisserie Chicken Tostada's

Pin It Now! With the in-laws in town, I want to do some impressive cooking.  I catered to my father-in-law last night with a lovely Italian soup.  Tonight, my mother-in-law gets the attention.  She loves Mexican food.  Me?  I'm not really the biggest fan of traditional Mexican food.  However, I like when I can find a happy medium.
We made these a couple of weeks ago, some weekend where we were just kickin' it at the house.  At the time I just wanted something super quick and easy.  We just loved the feta in this.  All the flavors blended really well together and it was a light tasting dish.  Make a side of quac and chips and you've got a great, healthy meal.     

 Ingredients (recipe adapted from Allrecipes)
    1 rotisserie chicken (meat pulled from bones and into torn or cut into strips)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon 40% less-sodium taco seasoning (such as Old El Paso)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • Cooking spray
  • (8-inch) flour tortillas
  • 3 cups packaged coleslaw
  • 3 cups packed veggie slaw (Trader Joe's has a broccoli slaw that I love)
  • (7-ounce) can green salsa (or red)
  • 4 cups chopped tomato
  • 1/4 cup sliced ripe olives, chopped
  • 1 can black beans (or re-fried black beans)
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
  • 6 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • Avacodo (chopped)
  • 1/4 cup unsalted pumpkinseed kernels, toasted (optional)

  • Place prepared chicken in a bowl.  Add juice, seasoning and sugar.  Mix well.
  • Heat a grill or grill pan.  Place tortillas on grill rack or grill pan coated with cooking spray; grill 30 seconds on each side or until golden brown.
  • Combine coleslaw and salsa; toss to coat. Combine tomato and olives; toss gently.
  • Spread about 3 tablespoons beans over each tortilla; divide chicken evenly among tortillas. Top each serving with about 2/3 cup slaw mixture, 2/3 cup tomato mixture, 4 teaspoons cheese, 1 tablespoon sour cream, 2 teaspoons cilantro, and chopped avacado. Sprinkle each serving with 2 teaspoons pumpkinseeds, if desired.
