We really enjoyed these, but did alter it somewhat. Used some left over home cooked pinto beans, took advice from one of the comments & used only 1 pan. Also layered homemade fresh tomato salsa with onion, cilantro & lime on top of chicken/bean mixture, so just used plain sour cream globs topped with the cheese. Radishes really make a difference!
I thought these were very tasty but very messy to eat! Definitely not date night food! A great tasting way to cook beans, and all the components were good but I think I will eat the rest on less crispy tortillas.
These are darn good. Way delicious. Outstandingly flavorful. The author of this recipe did a perfect job of balancing the ingredients. The chipotle gave the perfect amount of heat. The lime provided a just-right amount of zing. You can read my full review at: http://bit.ly/wu8n25
Delicious and easy to make. I reduced the chicken to 3 cups, and next time would probably drop to 2. Also, no need to dirty a second pan for the chicken - just mix it into the bean mixture until hot. Once you put it all on the tostada and cover it with lettuce, it's going to look the same anyway. Although the sour cream sauce was good, I think this dish would be just as good without it. I probably won't bother with that extra step next time.
Great way to use the chicken from the Citrus Roast Chicken. I used ground cumin instead of seeds, green onion instead of yellow and added diced tomatoes to the black bean mix. The whole family loved it, including the 16 month old.
Very good! Would back off of lime juice in sour cream mixture (maybe 1 lime rather than 2). Also, I might double black bean portion next time, but we love black beans! Like other reviews, our tortillas were crisp in fewer than 15 min. Served w/ sliced avocado and chopped tomatoes. Delicious and will definitely make again!
I cheated by purchasing store bought tostadas--one less step during the week. I love the combo of black beans and radishes.
Tasty dinner, but tortillas were crispy brown in under 7 minutes. Served with avocado.
