Reviews for Chicken Tostadas with Mango Salsa
"Really tasty! I would recommend basting the chicken every once in a while, and the longer the salsa sits, the better the flavors gel. I used small corn tortillas, which added some more heart and nutrition to the mix. I also had cabbage on hand that I needed to use up, so substituted that for the cole slaw mix--perfectly fine!"
"Something about the mango and cilantro together....this was delicious."
"My daughters and I loved it! The mango salsa adds the right amount of sweetness and the cabbage the right amount of crunchiness. I did leave out the pepper and used ground ginger and it still turned out super."
"okay... hard to eat, didnt like the way the flavours melded together."
