Serves 4 servings
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO), plus some for brushing on the tortillas
2 medium zucchini, quartered lengthwise and chopped
4 scallions, green and white parts chopped
1 store-bought rotisserie chicken (look for it near the deli counter), skin removed and meat shredded
1 cup good quality, store-bought tomatillo salsa
Salt and pepper
8 6-inch flour tortillas
1 cup pepper jack cheese, shredded
1 cup white cheddar cheese, shredded
1/4 cup (a handful) cilantro, chopped

Preheat oven to 425 F.

Preheat a skillet over medium-high heat with 2 tablespoons of EVOO. Add zucchini and saute until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Add the scallions, shredded chicken and tomatillo salsa, and cook until heated through. Season with salt and pepper.

While the filling is cooking, place the tortillas on 2 cookie sheets in an even layer, making sure not to overlap. Lightly brush them with some EVOO and bake until crispy, about 6 minutes. Remove tortillas from the oven and top each one with an even amount of filling followed by a handful of the cheeses.

Return the tostados to the oven to melt the cheese. Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve. Yum-O!
