Chicken Tostadas with Black Beans and Sweet Corn


Tostadas are probably our favorite type of Mexican food. I love how much yummy goodness you can top on top of the sturdy tostada shell. For this recipe, I used chopped chicken and a black bean and sweet corn salsa. It makes a very quick and easy recipe.
