Simple Chicken Tostadas

Tostados are the Mexican of an open-faced sandwich served on a tortilla. An amazing tostado should combine a mix of flavours and textures: crunchy from coleslaw, fatty from cheese, comfort from chicken, and ideally some heat from Hot Sauce.

  • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups coleslaw mix or shredded cabbage
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup baked beans
  • 2 2/3 cup shredded cooked chicken
