Fresh & Clean Chicken Tostada

This summer tostada is packed with flavor but not with calories. Fresh veggies and a crispy crust make it a cross between a pizza and loaded nachos.  You could try grilling up the vegetables instead of preparing them on the stove for even more of a summer-fare feeling.

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Spray nonstick skillet with Pam. Toss chicken and spices into pan and saute 3 minutes.  Remove from heat.  Toss in the onions and begin to caramelize (about 3 minutes) and then add in corn, zucchini for 2 minutes.  Add chicken back in and cook until chicken is no longer pink.  Stir in salsa.  Remove from heat.  Spray each tortilla with spray.  Bake for 7 minutes or until crisp but not overly brown.  Spoon 1/4 of chicken mixture onto each tortilla.  Sprinkle with beans, cheese and cilantro.  Add red pepper, if desired.
