Ingredients

  • 1 lb. ground chicken
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • ½ tsp. ground black pepper
  • ¼ tsp. ground cumin
  • ½ tsp. chili powder
  • 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 1 small white onion, peeled and diced
  • 8 tostada shells, toasted
  • 16 oz. refried beans, warmed
  • 2 cups shredded lettuce
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese

Directions

  • In a bowl, combine the ground chicken with the salt, pepper, cumin, and chili powder. Let stand for 20 minutes in the refrigerator.
  • Heat a wok or skillet over medium-high heat and add the oil. When the oil is hot, add in the garlic and onions. Cook for 3–4 minutes, until softened.
  • Add the chicken. Cook the chicken, stirring and crumbling up the meat until there is no trace of pink—about 3–4 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove the mixture to a large plate.
