This recipe is simple, very refreshing, addicting, perfect for summer.
I will show you the toppings and the order to add them to make a wonderful "Tostada de Pollo"
-Tostadas (about 15 or more I don't know)
-1 Whole Roasted or cooked Chicken (any way you'd like), skin removed and shredded
-2-4 cups Pinto Beans about 4 cups cooked (by boiling in water for 1-2 hours with ½ onion and 6 garlic cloves, salted towards the end)
This is usually done with leftover beans. You blend them in the blender to a smooth consistency after cooked. Heat lard or oil in a pan, add some minced onion and add the liquefied beans and fry them a bit. Remove and put in a bowl, let cool. This is suppose to be VERY loose consistency not thick.
-1 cup Mexican Cream or Sour Cream (dilute with some milk and mix well to make it smooth and somewhat loose but not to loose . Just for it to be like a thick stew something like that. Set aside in a bowl)
-½- 1 pound Fresh Cheese (a fresh Mexican cows milk cheese crumbled with your hands put in a bowl)
-1 bowl filled with thinly sliced/ shredded Romaine or Ice Berg Lettuce set aside
-1 bowl filled with finely chopped cubed tomato set aside
-1 bowl finely chopped cubed onions tossed with about 2-3 teaspoons dried oregano set aside
-1 small bowl of any kind of "Mexican" spicy sauce ANY WILL DO (I use a homemade Chile de Arbol Sauce)
