Tostadas de la Siberia

This is a very popular dish sold at a chain of restaurants called Tostadas de la Siberia, in the city of Monterrey. You can also find them in other restaurants sold as “La Siberia-Style Tostadas”. While living there, I wasn’t really impressed by the taste of this meal.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 cups of chicken breast cooked and shredded (about 9 oz.)
  • Salt to season
  • ¼ tsp. ground black pepper
  • tsp. onion powder
  • tsp. garlic powder
  • ⅓- cup chicken broth
  • 12 medium size corn tostadas
  • 1- cup creamy guacamole*
  • 6 tablespoons Mexican cream

TO SERVE:

  • Pickled carrots and jalapeños

Instructions

  • Heat the oil in a medium-size frying pan over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the chicken and season with the garlic, onion, and black pepper. Add ⅓ cup of chicken broth and stir to sauté the chicken. Cook for about 5 minutes to allow the flavors to blend and the chicken to warm up.
  • Spread about 2 ½ tablespoons of guacamole over a corn tostada, then top with ⅓ cup of shredded chicken and a dollop of cream. Cover with another tostada. Repeat the process with the rest of the ingredients. Serve with a side of pickled carrots and jalapeño peppers. Enjoy!
  • In case you’re wondering how you’re supposed to eat this type of tostadas, well, some people cut the top corn tostada in pieces and use it as a little scoop, or top some of the bottom tostada’s ingredients on it.

Notes

  • For the Guacamole, I used the recipe in the picture, but you can also use 1-½ avocado mashed with a few drops of lime juice and salt. But using the creamy avocado recipe is way flavorful.
  • If you want an extra crispy corn tostada, slightly fry the store-bought tostada in a very hot frying pan with oil for a few seconds and drain. Some restaurants use this method to serve a crispy and warm tostada.
