The Doctors: Healthy Chicken Tostada Recipe

The Doctors: Guilt-Free Mexican Food

The adorable and talented 14-year-old Chef Jimmy joined Dr Travis Stork on The Doctors yet again to share some of his healthy homemade recipes. This time he was taking on Mexican food, and after sharing his recipe for Lean Bean Burritos, he shared the recipe for his Chicken Tostadas. These delicious tostadas are made with a cauliflower tortilla rather than a fried tortilla, which means this recipe is loaded with healthy ingredients and not a single one you should feel guilty about! As much Dr Stork hates cauliflower, he absolutely loved this recipe because he couldn’t even taste the cauliflower!

  8. Stir until thoroughly combined
  9. Spoon the mixture onto the baking sheet, forming into a small, flat circle
