Our chicken tostadas are an easy south-of-the-border-style skillet meal that turns pantry staples into a mealtime fiesta!Makes 6 tostadas

2 teaspoons vegetable oil
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 1 pound total), cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1/2 cup water
1 (1-1/4-ounce) package dry taco seasoning mix
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
3/4 cup (3 ounces) shredded Mexican cheese blend, divided
6 (6-inch) tostadas (see Note)
2 scallions, sliced

1. In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add chicken and sauté 2 minutes, until browned. Add water and taco seasoning; reduce heat to low and simmer 5 minutes. Add black beans and simmer 2 more minutes; remove from heat.

2. Arrange tostadas on a serving platter; sprinkle evenly with cheese then top with chicken mixture and sprinkle with scallions. Serve immediately.

NOTE: If ready-made tostadas aren't available, place 6 (6-inch) corn tortillas on a baking sheet and bake in a 375°F. oven for 5 to 7 minutes, or until crisp.
