Tostadas Sinaloenses with Ricardo: Recipes in the Quarantine





I was so happy to learn this recipe from my cousin, Ricardo. He is a great cook and this recipe was the first time I saw what a good cook he is! 

The recipe is for chicken tostadas. "Sinaloenses" style means that after the tostada is made, a broth is poured over it. It is part crunchy, part wet in the perfect combination. And it needs to be eaten right away. If you like crunchy food, this one's for you!

Tostadas Sinaloenses

Ingredients: 

Serves 2-3
  • 2 chicken breasts with bone
  • Tostadas
  •  Frijoles refritos (refried beans)
  • 4 tomatoes
  • 1-2 serrano chiles
  • 1/4 onion
  • 1/4 purple onion
  • Lettuce, shredded
  • 1 Avocado
  • 1 cucumber, cut in rounds
  • Pinch of oregano
  • 5-10 ml of vinegar
  • Queso fresco
  • Cream
  • 5 lemons
  • 2-3 cups Prepared chicken stock, or bought

Directions: 

Prior preparation:

Chicken soup with one chicken breast (could be any other piece of the chicken but I like the chicken breast). Cook for 45 minutes-1 hour on low heat. Then, shred chicken. 

In a small pot, put the tomatoes, chiles and ¼ of the white onion, whole. Boil for 5-10 minutes or until the tomatoes open up. Then, blend it all in a blender or immersion blender. It will be like a soup. Season with salt. Set aside.

In a small bowl, place sliced red onion with some hot water, pinch of oregano, 5-10ml white wine vinegar, salt, and some lime juice. This tames down the onion flavor. Set aside. 

To make the tostada, first spread a layer of refried beans. Then, top with some shredded chicken. Then, put the avocado slices, tomato slices, red onions, cucumber, queso fresco, and cream. Now, top with a little of the tomato-chicken broth and eat immediately. 

It's simple but of course requires some advance preparation.

Tostadas Sinaloenses with my cousin @ricardoxeb. ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฝ A great time bonding in the kitchen together for this LiVe video. ๐Ÿ˜„A truly delicious recipe. Tostadas are bathed in a tomato-chicken broth and topped with creamy avocado and bright slices of onion. I feel so lucky he shared this recipe with me (his wife’s actually!) and his super helpful tricks in the Mexican kitchen, like « cutting the avocado the Mexican way ». The recipe is very healthy (low fat, low carb) and requires simple ingredients. And it’s gluten-free! . I didn’t know my cousin could cook so well! I hope to do more recipes with him because he really knows what he’s talking about. It was a fun show. ๐Ÿ˜ thanks primo! . Recipe ingredients are below and I’ll post the recipe in the blog soon. Catch the Live video for the next 24hrs before it’s gone! Thank you Ricardo for sharing this family recipe with me! And thank you all who joined our live video. ๐Ÿค— . CHICKEN SINALOENSES .
