Blue Corn Tostada Mash-Up
If you have time, try to make the chicken mole the day before so the flavors can settle in overnight. If you want to simplify this dish, you can use store-bought tostadas, but you’ll miss out on the texture, flavor, and hot crunch of a homemade tostada. Crema Mexicana is a saltier, tangier version of crème fraîche. Look for it in a plastic bottle in the refrigerated section of your grocery store or specialty food store.

Serves 6

  1. Assembly Put one tostada on each plate. Top with a -inch layer of refrito. Add about  cup shredded chicken. Top with quick-pickled vegetables and dollops of the two cremas.
