4. SHRED the cooked chicken using two forks.

5. PREPARE the avocado crema. In a food processor, combine the ripe avocados, sour cream, chopped cilantro, lime juice, salt, and pepper. Blend until smooth and creamy. Adjust the seasonings to your taste.

6. PREP the tortillas. Preheat the oven to 425F. Brush both sides of the corn tortillas with olive oil and place on a sheet pan. Bake for about 5 minutes or until they become crisp and lightly browned. Flip each tortilla over and sprinkle with grated cheese and bake for another 2 – 4 minutes, or until the cheese melts.

7. ASSEMBLE the tostadas. Top each tortilla with the shredded chicken. Then, add the toppings of your choice: shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, jalapenos, and cilantro.
