The Kicks Wake Up Krew

Weekday Mornings 5:30 - 10:00

The current heatwave that we’re experiencing in the CSRA means we try and stay away from turning on the oven to make our meals! Plus it’s on the lighter side too since the heat tends to zap our appetites during this time of year. And with just a few ingredients, it’s budget friendly and kid friendly as far as prep goes too. So Lex and I bring to you our recipe for delicious Chicken Tostadas.

Boil the tomatoes and jalapeño until the skin breaks on the tomatoes, about 5-7 minutes. Drain water and let tomatoes cool enough to touch. Peel off tomato skins. Add jalapeño, tomatoes, 2 whole cloves of garlic into a food processor or blender and blend until mostly smooth. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.

You can buy Crema in the store or just add a few tablespoons of milk to a few tablespoons of sour cream and blend until smooth. It’s a nice finishing touch to your tostada.

We also like to fry our tortilla shells, but you can warm them up in a pan for a healthier option.
