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.

This works well either as a stand-alone starter or as part of a spread or side. It’s lovely with some hot smoked salmon or trout. “Smacked” cucumbers sounds a bit dramatic but, really, it’s just a way of bruising them to allow all the flavor to seep through to the flesh.
