Chicken Tostadas

Tostadas (or chalupas, whatever) are so quick to make, especially when you don’t feel like cooking but NEEEED Mexican food.  I used the slow cooker to get the chicken going, really trying to use that more.

This chicken mixture can be made and frozen in freezer bags if you wish to cook a large quantity.  Thaw in refrigerator when you are ready to heat and eat.
