Chicken Adobo Tostadas with Citrus-Cabbage Slaw

Chicken Adobo Tostadas with Citrus-Cabbage Slaw

Tostadas add a little variety to the taco night routine at our house, and they allow me to slather a layer of beans on them, which is a definite plus!

This recipe features our Instant Pot Pinto Beans with Mexican-Style Adobo, which have a creamy enough texture that no additional smashing or refrying is necessary. But refried beans work just as well.

For the citrusy cabbage slaw, I used an orange from my neighbor's tree, which happens to bear very sour oranges! If you find the slaw needs a little more sour flavor, I'd recommend just adding a splash of apple cider vinegar or lime juice at the end.

Chicken Adobo Tostadas with Citrus-Cabbage Slaw

Serves 4

Ingredients:

8 tostada shells
About 2 cups Mexican Chicken Adobo
About 2 cups Instant Pot Pinto Beans with Mexican-Style Adobo, or refried beans
Cabbage-Citrus Slaw (see below)
Avocado, sliced
Queso fresco or feta cheese, crumbled, for garnish

Citrus-Cabbage Slaw:

½ head red cabbage, sliced thin
¼ red onion, sliced thin
Juice of one orange
1 tablespoon olive oil
¼ cup cilantro leaves, chopped

1 teaspoon salt

Directions:

Spread a layer of beans on each tostada shell. I used about a 1/4 cup. Top each tostada with about 1/4 cup of chicken, a handful of slaw, avocado slices and a couple spoonfuls of crumbled queso fresco or feta cheese.

We love empanadas in my household, and what’s not to love? The buttery crunch of pastry, your favorite fillings, they're not too big, but small enough that you can eat two (or more...), and still feel good about it!
