The moment I sat down to write this out, one of my favorite Latin songs came blasting on. I think it’s a sign of the universe approving of this recipe in a big way.

Or maybe I just have too much love for this song (Danza Kuduro by Don Omar – don’t judge, this song is my fuel).

I love crunchy tostadas. The crispy tortilla acts like a little plate that I can load up with whatever tasty deliciousness I want. You’ve seen me make them bite-sized and stacked in Greek Hummus Tostada Stacks, and all the way back to the first tostada I ever made all by my lonesome. 

The point being, I love me some tostada action.

Something about biting into this tostada loaded up with a bunch of delicious ingredients makes me want to dance and wiggle all around.

The sweet and spicy glazed chicken is juicy and flavorful. The grapefruit salsa brings some acidity, a touch of sweetness and spicy to the party. Then top it all off with a creamy avocado cream sauce to cool things off to make the entire dish sing.

The key to the perfect tostada is hitting it with a pinch of salt the moment it comes out of the hot oil. That little splash of salt will impact the flavor of the entire dish in a big way (plus if you “accidently” break any, they make for a great snack as you make more… be sure to break at least one while you’re cooking ok?).

Even though this recipe is made for two, I totally wouldn’t judge you if you made it just for yourself…

In fact, I encourage this choice. 100%.

    Would you know that I’ve never made tostadas at home before? And clearly, I need to jump on the bandwagon because I am SO into this combination of flavors!

    Would be nice if the recipe included the grapefruit salsa and avocado cream instead of only having the instructions for making the chicken.

      Thank you for alerting me to this Sarah! Looks like there was a mistake on the Food Fanatic site with my recipe so I am looking into having it fixed now!

      Hi Sarah! I wanted to let you know that the problem has been fixed so you can see separate recipe cards for the grapefruit salsa and avocado cream, in addition to the tostadas. Thanks for bringing this to my attention!
