Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless chicken
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 16oz jar salsa
  • 1 package taco seasoning
  • 12 tostadas
  • 1 medium tomato chopped
  • 3 cups lettuce shredded

  • 8oz can sweet corn drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup feta cheese crumbled

Instructions
 

  • In the slow cooker, add the chicken breasts.  Sprinkle the taco seasoning on the chicken.  Add the chopped onion and the salsa to the cooker.  Cook on low for 6-8 hours or until the chicken is cooked.  
  • When the chicken is finished cooking, remove it and shred it.  Once it’s shredded, return it back to the salsa mixture and mix to combine it.  You want to add those juices to the shredded chicken.
  • Now you can make your tostadas.  Add a tostada to a plate.  Add 1 cup of shredded chicken to the tostada.  Dress them with lettuce, tomato, black beans, corn and feta cheese.  You can just sprinkle these on each stack of tostada that you make.
