Chicken and Guacamole Tostadas

It took me awhile to get started yesterday. I was so exhausted. But get up I did. I had to run errands in addition to getting my eyebrows threaded. I am still on the richest man of Babylon kick, so I have been better about planning my grocery shopping. In fact, I only allowed myself two junk food items: some kettle corn and some Italian cookies from Whole Foods. On the menu last night, was Chicken and Guacamole Tostadas. This no cook recipe from Cooking Light Magazine was excellent! It only took me 30 minutes to prepare all of the items and it was yummy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 2 tostadas)


  • 1  ripe peeled avocado
  • 1  cup  plus 2 tablespoons finely chopped tomato, divided
  • 3  tablespoons  minced fresh onion, divided
  • 3  tablespoons  fresh lime juice, divided
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt, divided
  • 1  small garlic clove, minced
  • 1  tablespoon  chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1  tablespoon  minced seeded jalapeño pepper
  • 2  cups  shredded skinless, boneless rotisserie chicken breast
  • 1/4  teaspoon  smoked paprika
  • 8  (6-inch) corn tostada shells


1. Place avocado in a small bowl; mash with a fork. Stir in 2 tablespoons tomato, 1 tablespoon onion, 1 tablespoon juice, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and garlic.
