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