Ingredients

    4 6-inch corn tortillas
    1 poblano pepper, seeds removed and chopped
    1/2 cup roasted corn (available in the frozen foods aisle)
    1/2 teaspoon chili powder
    1 cup grape tomatoes, quartered
    1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

Tips

In summertime, grill the corn yourself. If you can't find roasted corn, use canned or frozen corn kernels.

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray one side of each tortilla with nonstick cooking spray. Sprinkle chili powder on each tortilla and place on a baking sheet. Bake until crisp, about 10 minutes, flipping the tortillas halfway through. Remove from oven and set aside to cool.

While the tortillas are cooking, place a small skillet over medium-high heat. Add the poblano and cook, stirring occasionally, until the edges start to char. Remove from heat.

In a medium bowl, combine the corn, cooked pepper, chili powder, tomatoes, cumin, and lime. Place one heaping cup of the mixture on each tortilla. Top each tostada with 3 ounces of chicken and one tablespoon cheese. Bake just until the cheese has melted, about five minutes.

Remove from the oven and top with the avocado and cilantro. Serve immediately.

Serving Size: Makes 4 tostadas
