Chef Rick Martinez makes easy rotisserie chicken tostadas served with refried beans, queso fresco, cilantro, onions + lime.

Rick, a James Beard-nominated cooking show host and acclaimed food writer, explains that dried chiles are a quintessential ingredient in Mexican cuisine. Lots of people use chile powder or store-bought paste, and they are convenient, but dried chiles are how you get the real flavor of Mexico. The guajillo, which is the key to this dish, is a good “starter” chile: it’s very mild and easy to use. You just stem it and take the seeds out.

You can serve the tostadas with Rach’s Refried Beans or your favorite version.
