Chicken and Cheese Tostados

I always find tostados a bit hard to eat – do you crack the tortilla and scoop? Do you pick it all up and eat it like a pizza? For this one, I folded the shell over like a taco 🙂 The flavors in this dish mix incredibly well and this is a GREAT lunch.

Moo Shu Wraps

This is an excellent homemade version of vegetable moo shu that you can get at most Chinese restaurants. Hoisin sauce is available in the Asian section of most markets – be sure not to leave that out, it’s what makes this dish really authentic tasting.
