Tandoori Tostadas

Who doesn’t love crispy tostadas?

These are grain free tostadas that are fused with Indian flavors and ingredients. Make some delicious tandoori chicken ahead of time, and layer it on top of some crispy tortillas with all of the toppings: onions, tomatoes, chutneys and more. I love the hot, crispy tortilla combined with the savory, tender chicken and the cool, crunchy and bright toppings. Hope you give this a try!
