Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (13 votes)

These grilled chicken tostadas are topped with rich mole sauce and sweet-and-sour summer vegetables and use store-bought tostada shells for convenience. If you want to make this a vegetarian dish, leave out the grilled chicken.

These were absolutely scrumptious! This was my first time making a sauce from scratch and it turned out great! (I didn't strain mine either) I used chipotle pepper tostadas and didn't bother with the sweet and sour vegetables. I topped them with olives, green onion, Spanish onion, lettuce, banana peppers, and a little sprinkle of cheddar cheese. They were so tasty that my finicky little sister snuck in the fridge and ate all the leftovers.

I found it to be pretty spicy though, but that was probably entirely my fault (I tend to go a little heavy on the spice). I also found that it was a bit time consuming to make. Next time (which will probably be this week) I'm going to make a huge batch of the sauce so I can freeze it.

This is definitely a new favourite of mine. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!

I love the mole sauce! I don't strain it. Nor, truthfully, did I bother with the peppers, but just used a tablespoon or two of good chili powder. I love this because I can make it earlier in the day and it's all ready at dinner time. This mole sauce plus the adobo rub on chicken has definitely kicked our taco nights up a notch. I will say, however, that we didn't like the veggies. The sour flavor didn't seem to go with the rest of the taco, and they were a lot of bother to make.

The adobo rub and veggies are great. The mole sauce however, was less than ideal. It was very liquidy and not thick at all. I would recommend using a different mole sauce recipe or not sieving the sauce (or only sieving the pepper skins).
