Chicken and Guacamole Tostadas

This was a super easy and simple recipe that everyone will love!  My husband told me I can add this his “favorites” list.  The smoked paprika gives the chicken a rich, grill-like flavor with no cooking…you just buy a rotisserie chicken!  Tostada shells are flat, fried corn tortillas, found in the Mexican food section.  I ate my chicken and pico de gallo on corn tortillas, and my husband ate his with taco shells.  You can use whatever you like.  The Chicken and Guacamole Tostada recipe comes from Cooking Light Magazine, the August 2010 issue.  Enjoy!!!

Finely dice tomato to make 1 cup.
Add 2 tablespoons minced fresh onion.

Add 1/4 tsp salt, 2 tbsp lime juice, 1 tbsp minced seeded jalapeno pepper, and 1 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro.  Combine.  You now have pico de gallo!

Combine chicken, remaining 1 tbsp lime juice, and smoked paprika.
Spread guacamole over tostada (I omitted).  Then top with chicken, pico de gallo, and shredded cheddar cheese (optional).
