Chicken & Black Bean Tostadas

3oz chicken breast fillet
2 corn tortillas
2 TBS low sugar BBQ sauce
1/4 cup black beans
1 TBS reduced fat shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 TBS chopped cilantro

Non food needs: cookie sheet, foil & cooking spray

Turn oven on to “Broil” on high. Line a cookie tray with foil & spray the foil with cooking spray so tortillas don’t stick. Place tortillas on foil lined cookie tray and put under the broiler until the tortillas are browned & crispy on both sides. Turn broiler off and turn the oven on to 350 degrees. *pay close attention so tortillas don’t burn, it happens very quickly.

Grill chicken breast on a grill pan or outdoor grill until fully cooked. Chop chicken and mix with 1 tablespoon of BBQ sauce; divide 2nd tablespoon of BBQ sauce evenly on crispy tortillas. Divide equal amounts of grilled chicken, black beans & reduced fat cheese on both tortillas. Place back in to oven until cheese is melted.

Sprinkle tostadas with cilantro and enjoy!

*can be made in to tacos by steaming the tortillas instead of broiling them until crispy
*gluten free if your BBQ sauce is gluten free
*serves 1 or 2. I need to eat both to be satisfied
