Barbecue Chicken Tostadas

Barbecue Chicken Tostadas

It’s typical for me to throw together some ingredients on hand to create a meal in a pinch.  That’s why I call my kitchen “The Makeshift Kitchen.”  John was coming home one night from work, and the kiddos and I had already eaten leftovers of the same meal John had taken for lunch.  When I realized he wouldn’t want to eat the same thing for dinner (duh!), I came up with this quick meal.  I can’t wait to make this again for me and the kids too!

Everything was in the fridge, so it was really easy and fast.  I had roasted chicken thawed from the freezer, leftover homemade corn tortillas, shredded cheese and barbecue sauce.  Read here for more about roasting chicken to keep in the freezer.
