These zesty, delightfully crunchy tostadas are piled high with our take on refried beans and tender chicken cooked in a sauce that features fiery chipotle paste tempered with light brown sugar. The bold, smoky flavors are perfectly complemented by a salsa of juicy fresh tomatoes and crisp radishes tossed with bright lime juice.

Prepare the ingredients & make the salsa:
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the salsa:

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Drain and rinse the beans. Zest the lime to get 1 teaspoon (if you don’t have a zester, use a peeler to remove the green rind of the lime, avoiding the white pith; mince the rind). Halve the lime crosswise. Halve the tomatoes. Halve the radishes lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Combine in a bowl; add the lime zest and the juice of 1 lime half. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Cook the beans:
2 Cook the beans:

While the salsa marinates, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped garlic and sliced white bottoms of the scallions; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the drained beans and 1/2 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter); season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently and mashing the beans with the back of a spoon, 5 to 6 minutes, or until slightly thickened. Turn off the heat; stir in the juice of the remaining lime half. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Transfer to a bowl and cover with foil to keep warm. Rinse and wipe out the pan. 

Make the sauce:
3 Make the sauce:

Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the sugar, 1 tablespoon of warm water, and as much of the chile paste as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Stir until the sugar has dissolved. 

Toast the tortillas:
4 Toast the tortillas:

Place the tortillas on a sheet pan. Drizzle with 1 teaspoon of olive oil and season with salt and pepper; turn to coat. Toast in the oven 6 to 8 minutes, or until lightly browned and crispy. Remove from the oven. 

Cook the chicken:
5 Cook the chicken:

Meanwhile, pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper. In the same pan, heat 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken in an even layer and cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter) and cook, stirring frequently, 3 to 4 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.
