Sunday Social #1

Hello my beautiful readers! I have seen many fellow bloggers talking about specific topics on certain days, and I've been trying to figure out if I can come up with something like that. Then I actually came across this link on  Malorie's blog 'Life feels good in Portbail Beach' and tried I would give it a try. So here I go!

I am linking up with Now,  Ashley from Ashley's Carnival Ride and Neely from A Complete Waste of Make Up for Sunday Social. Today's questions are all about food! yum!


1. If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Chicken tacos. I am obsessed with them!

2. What's your guilty pleasure/comfort food?
I have two. Chocolate pie and ice cream.
and to be more specific Burger King;s Hershey's Sundae Pie
AND Sonic's Oreo Blast!
3. What's the weirdest/craziest thing you've ever eaten?
One summer my family and I went to San Francisco and we went to a seafood place, we ordered the 'sampler' which came with 5 different appetizers and one of them was actually small fried balls stuffed with shark.Yup. I I've eaten shark,
4. What foods do you avoid at all costs?
Not a type of food in specific, I just tried to stay away from greasy food.
5. What meal reminds you of your childhood?
Ever since I was a little girl my grandma (mother's mom) cooked Tamales every Christmas, and she still does. It's a family tradition, we all get together and help my grandma cook them.
6. Share one of your favorite recipes and the story behind it.
I learned how to make Chicken Tostadas when I was younger, I remember my Mom and Grandma helped me. I can still picture that day, we were in my Grandma's kitchen and we were all having a good time. Just thinking about it puts a smile on my face :)

Ingredients

Crispy Tortillas
Vegetable oil for frying
6 white corn tortillas
Kosher salt for sprinkling 
Chicken
3 cups cooked shredded chicken 
1/3 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
1/4 cup olive oil
Tostadas
Refried beans
3 ounces of your favorite cheese
1/2 head iceberg lettuce, cored, shredded.

Directions

To make the tortillas: Pour the oil for frying into a large heavy-bottomed pot to a depth of about 2 inches. Place over medium heat and heat to 375 degrees F. Add the tortillas, one at a time, and fry until golden brown and crispy, about 1 1/2 minutes. Using tongs, transfer to a paper towel-lined pan and sprinkle with salt. Set aside.
To make the chicken: In a small bowl, mix together the chicken, lime juice, oil, coriander, and salt and season with pepper to taste. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside.
To assemble the tostadas: Preheat the broiler. Spread the beans evenly over one side of each tortilla and sprinkle with some of the cheese. Transfer to a baking sheet and broil until the cheese is lightly browned and melted, about 30 seconds. Divide the tortillas among 6 plates.
Evenly mound the chicken on each tortilla and top with the lettuce. Serve immediately.-SOURCE
Hope I didn't make you all hungry! Until next time :)
