ROASTED CHICKEN-BUTTERNUT SQUASH TOSTADAS



DESCRIPTION

Served on a crispy, freshly fried homemade shell, these roasted chicken-butternut squash tostadas are piled high with an assortment of delicious toppings.

INGREDIENTS

8 tostada shells, preferably homemade
1/2 cup refried black beans
1 butternut squash, halved and seeded
Salt and pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup red enchilada sauce, preferably homemade
1/2 cup roasted chicken, shredded
1/2 cup smoked cheddar, shredded
Mexican crema or sour cream, for garnish
1-2 avocados, cubed, for garnish
1-2 limes, sliced, for garnish
Fresh cilantro, chopped, for garnish

INSTRUCTIONS

1.    Heat oven to 425 degrees. Brush butternut squash halves with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and place in a pan with about half an inch of water. Roast until a fork easily pierces the squash. A small squash should take about 45 minutes while a large squash generally takes about an hour.
2.    When cool enough to handle, scoop the butternut squash into a food processor and blend until smooth.
3.    On tostada shells, spoon a tablespoon each of refried black beans, butternut squash puree, enchilada sauce, chicken and smoked cheddar. To melt the cheese, place under the broiler. This shouldn’t take long just about a minute or so, depending on your oven, so watch carefully.
4.    Garnish with Mexican crema or sour cream, avocado cubes, lime slices, and cilantro. Enjoy!

NOTES


As far as the chicken goes, you can keep it simple with a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. Those rotisserie chickens are ridiculously delicious and such an easy and economical way to source meat for recipes. You can buy a fresh rotisserie, or do as I do and keep frozen rotisserie meat on hand for those times when you don’t want to deal with the grocery store. Store-bought rotisserie chicken works well and is quick and easy. Alternatively, I love this apple cider spatchcock chicken recipe I shared on Recipes Worth Repeating.
