Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons Chipotle Chili Peppers in Adobo Sauce
  • 3 Jalepeno Chicken Sausages, diced
  • 1/2 can Rotel
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro
  • 1 cup refried beans
  • 3/4 cup shredded colby-jack cheese
  • 4 Tostadas
  • Chopped green onions and Cholula hot sauce for topping

Directions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Spray a medium-sized skillet with nonstick spray. Saute chicken sausage over medium heat for 1-2 minutes. Add cilantro, chipotle chili peppers in adobo sauce and Rotel, mix together and saute for an additional 1-2 minutes. Add cilantro, saute for 1 minute, set aside.

Place the refried beans in a bowl, and microwave for 30-60 seconds or until warm. (This helps the beans become a bit more malleable to avoid you breaking a tostada as you smear them on.)

Spray a nonstick baking sheet with nonstick spray. Delicately place 4 tostadas on the sheet and smear a healthy layer of refried beans over each. Top each with about a 1/4 cup of chicken sausage mixture and then with a sprinkle of cheese, dividing the cheese and chicken sausage mixture evenly among the four. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until cheese is melted.

While Tostadas are baking, prepare four eggs over-easy with the yolks still runny. (I like to add a bit of water to the skillet and keep them covered.) Once Tostadas are done, top each with an over-easy egg, a few chopped scallions and a sprinkle of Cholula hot sauce (if desired). Break those yolks and dig in.
