Easy Chicken and Bean Tostadas
I like to keep my pantry well stocked with lots of canned beans because they’re one of my favorite pantry staples and go-to ingredients for quick, inexpensive meals.
Beans are perfect when you have a small amount of leftover meal that you’d like to stretch a little a little further, which is exactly what I did in these Easy Chicken and Bean Tostadas.
I’ve recently been experimenting with more than just your traditional culinary beans in some of my recipes. I have been a big fan of Bush’s Culinary Beans for years, because I honestly don’t think there is a better canned bean for out there for your recipes. Bush’s also have great varieties of other bean options, such as Chili Beans, Baked Beans, and more.
In this recipe, a simple chicken Tostada gets a make over with these Bush’s® Bold & Spicy Baked Beans. These Easy Chicken and Bean Tostadas are super simple to throw together and they’re perfect for lunch or a quick dinner thanks to the help of Bush’s Beans.
These Bush’s® Bold & Spicy Baked Beans have a hint of spice thanks to the seasonings of cilantro and cumin that are paired with bacon and brown sugar, making them a fun addition to these Chicken Tostadas.
Toasted flour tortillas are topped with your favorite guacamole or even just smashed avocado, lettuce and cilantro, shredded chicken, and Bush’s® Bold & Spicy Baked Beans.
You can garnish them however you’d like, but I chose to add sliced green onion, diced red pepper and sour cream on top of mine. Other topping options might include sliced jalapeños, shredded cheese, sautéed onions, olives, or really anything else that you have on hand!
