Chicken & Cheese Tostadas

This is a quick, family friendly Tex Mex inspired dish. It's so good, and my kids gobble it up!

6 flour tortillas
1 packet (1.25 oz) taco seasoning mix
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-in pieces
1/2 cup water
2 cups chopped tomatoes, divided
2 cups shredded Cheddar or Mexican cheese, divided
6 tbsp sour cream
1/4 cup chopped cilantro

PREHEAT oven to 400. Place tortillas in single layer on large baking sheet. Spray tortillas with cooking spray; sprinkle with 1 tsp of seasoning mix. Bake 7 to 8 min or until crisp and golden brown.

MEANWHILE, mix chicken, remaining seasoning mix and water in large skillet. Bring to boil on medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 5 min or until chicken is cooked through, stirring occasionally. Add 1 1/2 cups of tomatoes. Cook until heated through, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in 1 1/2 cups of the cheese.

SPOON chicken mixture evenly over tortillas. Top with the remaining 1/2 cup cheese, remaining 1/2 cup tomatoes, the sour cream, and cilantro.

Makes 6 servings, 1 tostada each.
