Southwestern Inspired Chicken Tostadas

I love summer food – there are so many fresh fruits and vegetables that are local around here. We have our own raised garden with lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, onions, squash, zucchini, basil, and more. Everything else including fruit I buy at the fruit stands or farmer’s market.

Another thing I like about summer meals is their simplicity. It gets too hot to stand over the oven and do a lot of cooking, so I like to keep meals quick and easy – like these tostadas. Sometimes the best meals are ones that have less measuring involved, and more color.

We had these ‘Southwestern Inspired Tostadas’ for dinner a few nights ago. I used Foster Farms® Refrigerated Grilled Chicken Breast Strips which made prep time even quicker. I love using the Foster Farms® Grilled Chicken Strips because they are super convenient, fully cooked, and ready to eat. Also, like all Foster Farms products, they have no added hormones or steroids.
