Spicy BBQ Chicken Tostadas


Spicy BBQ Chicken:
2 tablespoons sweet paprika (I used smoked)
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 tablespoon kosher salt
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper
1/2 – 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 pounds bone in, skinless chicken thighs

For the tostadas:
Tostadas (store bought or homemade*)
Sour cream
Shredded cheese of your choice (I used Monterey Jack & Colby)
Salsa or pico de gallo
Lime wedges

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Combine all the spices in a small bowl.
Generously rub the spice mixture on the chicken thighs, making sure to thoroughly coat.

Place the chicken on a baking sheet lined with foil. Bake in the preheated oven for 30-40 minutes until juices run clear and is completely cooked through. Remove from oven and allow to rest for at least 5-10 minutes.

Using 2 forks, remove the chicken from the bones. Use this seasoned chicken or your tostadas.

To assemble your tostadas, spread a dollop of sour cream on top of the tostadas. Top with a heaping tablespoon of the spicy bbq chicken. Garnish with your favorite toppings and enjoy!

*To make homemade tostadas, briefly fry corn tortillas in oil until crisp and lightly browned. Drain on a paper towel and cool slightly before topping.
