Chicken Tostada with Avocado Cream and Sour Onions
I'm pretty new to making my own tortillas. I'd been waiting to buy a tortilla press. I guess it's just going to have to wait until next year. It's easy even without the press though. I just mixed 1/2 cup masa with 1/3 cup water and a little salt, rolled it out into balls and smashed it between the cutting board and the bottom of a pan. A little thick and uneven but at least I got to eat fresh tortillas!
The rest was easy too - diced chicken, sauteed red onion and jalapeno with a little vinegar and cumin, showered it all with some cotija cheese and mache lettuce. What more could a girl ask for?
8 oz sour cream
1/2 Tbsp Montreal seasoning (or mixture of salt, pepper, fennel, onion flake, garlic flake)
Smash the avocado up the way you would to make guacamole. Add to the sour cream and mix together with the seasoning. Great on almost everything!
