    I have been wanting to do some smoked chicken tostada's for a while now and finally got around to it yesterday. Man these were tasty

    Found some boneless leg meat at the local Mexican market along with some fresh flour tortillas.

    Here is the leg meat rubbed  with Chipotle powder, Onion, Garlic and Cumin


    Into the smoker at 250 for 2 1/2 hours

    In the meantime, I made some fresh pico de gallo and some fresh guacamole


    I also fried up the flour tortillas - here they are on a rack cooling and draining


    Here we are starting to build the meal with beans and the chopped chicken at the bottom


    Here we are with the salad pico, some cheese and the guacamole


    And a final shot of the layers


    These were a big hit with Mrs Scar. She even took one for lunch

    Thanks for looking

    We love Mexican here, and I think that may be what I'm going to do

    Thanks for the idea!

    Excellent, Gary!  The flour tostada has been a favorite of mine for many years.  Something magic happens when you fry a flour tortilla.

    Good luck and good smoking.
