Chicken and Summer Vegetable Tostadas

Quick, easy and summery fresh. Pull out the corn on the cob and pick a zucchini for this one: Chicken and Summer Vegetable Tostadas.

These are fixed in the oven… but the good news is that you don’t have to have the oven on for long in this hot summer heat. Just give them a quick broil to melt it all together and then they’re finished.

I made these for lunch for my husband and me, but they’d make a delicious and filling dinner as well. My husband thought these were really, really good. He always gives me that ‘raised-eyebrows’ look… like he’s so surprised that I came up with something so delicious. I don’t know why he acts so surprised- I mean, I have a food blog here honey… I usually can come up with some pretty good stuff  :)

Enjoy an easy night in the kitchen with this recipe, and maybe a little Spanish-style rice on the side.

    Aah, the best part is the hints of sweetness the corn provides- it makes the food so toothsome! :)
