Chicken Tostadas with Chili Crema a crispy tostada piled high with cabbage, shredded chicken, queso fresco cheese, and topped off with chili crema! They’re simple to make at home with all that south of the boarder flavor.
Oh and we can. not. forget. the fresh squeeze of lime juice that makes it truly authentic!
Recently, I had the wonderful opportunity to visit central Mexico with my sister and daughter. While we were there we enjoyed a Chicken Tostada as part of our meal at a restaurant in Puebla, Mexico …
I loved them so much that I just had to reproduce them at home and share them with all of you!
In Puebla we went to the market… a found these awesome handmade masquerade masks!
Enjoyed listening to a father and son practice singing and playing outside a coffee shop…
I was taught how to make corn tortillas by hand in our hostess kitchen- she makes them and sells them everyday! (she was very patient with me)…
They all thought we were really tall~ just incase you were wondering; it was quite often commented on 🙂
We had an amazing visit and fell in love with the people and ways of Mexico!
Now make yourself a Chicken Tostada with Chili Crema and join the fiesta!! Arrrriba 🙂
