Thank you to Ree at Milk, Sugar, Musings and Love for becoming a follower of my blog!

Big news for me….I was asked to guest host for Magazine Monday, my first ever gig at guest hosting..…see the news on Cream Puffs site HERE

Thank you Ivonne :-) I will make you a proud creampuff.

If you’d like to participate I will be posting the roundup on Monday, August 30th so send your submissions to me by then!

Now, to the food................

Do you like it easy? Do you like chicken? How about avocados? Here is a No-Cook Meal, 20 minutes from prep-to-the-table, featuring all of the aforementioned. Chicken and Guacamole Tostadas are featured for Magazine Monday.

This one comes from the August 2010 issue of Cooking Light. Yes, I splurged on a magazine! Recipe is at the end………………….


1 ripe peeled avocado
1 cup plus 2 Tablespoons finely chopped tomato
3 tablespoons minced fresh onion
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
½ teaspoon salt
1 clove of garlic minced
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
2 cups shredded skinless rotisserie chicken
¼ cups smoked paprika
8 (6 inch) tostada shells

Place avocado in small bowl; mash with a fork. Stir in 2 TB tomato, 1 TB onion, 1 TB juice, ¼ teaspoon salt and garlic.

Combine remaining 1 cup tomato, 2 TB onion, 1 TB lime juice, ¼ teaspoon salt and cilantro. Toss well.

Combine chicken, remaining TB juice and paprika; toss well to combine. Spread about 1 TB guacamole over each tostada shell. Top with chicken mixture and about 2 TB salsa.

The smoked paprika can give the chicken a grill-like flavor. Serve with lime wedges and enjoy!

Because this is a natural real food kinda meal..... I think it fits the theme for Two-for-Tuesdays...........fruit, roasted chicken, an icy glass of tea and lime..............

Congrats on your guest post gig! I'll have to check it out. These tostadas look fabulous! Fresh flavors, simple ingredients, and super healthy!

Hooray for you hosting MM. I'll try to play along since your hosting the next round:)

The chicken tostadas are a great no cook idea. Yet another reason why I love buying a rotisserie chicken.

Hi Tina! Congrats on your guest post gig! it is always exciting to share yourself with a new audience. VERY cool! I also love this wonderfully easy and tasty summer recipe. I could, as with bacon, eat avocado on everything! :) Thanks for linking to the two for tuesday recipe blog hop. Alex@amoderatelife

Pierce said...

Thank you Girlichef! Definitley grab one of your magazine recipes you've been meaning to try. It's helped me weed through the ever growing pile and discard some.
Can't wait to see the changes up for Two-4-Tuesdays!

Drick - It was the 4th time we made your pasta dish! I didn't ost it again because people will think, geesh, she makes that all the time! But - this last time we used crab and scallops. The time before we used crab and shrimp. Thank you for your nice comments!!

Katerina - I love the ease of a meal like this when the end result is healthy food!

Hi Alex, I was thinking of you when I made this one - you always keep it healthy :-)

Mmm, nothing better than a quick meal, any time. I get so much mileage out of smoked paprika, don't you? It's one of the few spices that I manage to use up before it goes stale. Thank you for sharing at Two for Tuesday. And congrats on your guest post, can't wait to read it.

Sage said...

Yes I like chicken and yes I like avocado and I love your recipe. I am still learning in this game, so I will surely follow as guest host. Now I will study what this is all about. Thank you for joining me.

Christy said...

Oh, I love it all! I just bought some smoked paprika (new item for me) what a wonderful way to break it in! Thanks for linking to Two for Tuesdays!

Wandering Coyote said...

This is right up my alley, Pierce! Looks great!

On another note, get ready for another roast chicken recipe - more soup! I have the stock made and should be able to get the soup done for dinner tonight. Definitely post-worthy!

Pierce said...
