Directions:

1Prepare a large heavy-bottomed pot and heat it with vegetable oil over medium heat or 190 celsius-degree.

2Take a small bowl and put the chicken, lime juice, olive oil, and coriander. Mix them until well combined. Then, do not forget to add the salt and pepper as the seasoning. Stir and combine them again. Next, take the plastic wrap and cover the bowl with it. Make sure all surface of the bowl is covered then set aside.

3Now, it’s time to assemble the tostadas. Prepare a broiler and heat it up. Get the tortillas and sprinkle with refried beans and cheese on top of each. Remove the tortillas to a baking sheet and bake until 30 seconds or until the cheese gets melted or turns into light brown. After that, place the tortillas on six plates.

4Get the chicken mixture and put it on top of each tortilla. Give the sliced lettuce also and other ingredients like avocado, salsa cruda, and sour cream. Then, for the garnish, you can add scallion and coriander leaves on the top of the tortillas. Your loaded chicken tostada is ready and serves it while it is hot.
