Chef Rick Martinez makes easy rotisserie chicken tostadas served with beans, queso fresco, cilantro, onions + lime.
Rick, a James Beard-nominated cooking show host and acclaimed food writer, explains that dried chiles are an essential ingredient in Mexican cuisine. Many people use chili powder or store-bought paste, and they’re convenient, but dried chilies are how you get the real taste of Mexico. The guajillo, the key to this dish, is a good “starter” chili: it’s very mild and easy to use. You just steal it and take out the seeds.
You can serve the tostadas with Rach’s Refried Beans or your favorite version.
