Chicken Tostada with Guac & Pico de Gallo

I love summer.  The sunshine, the green grass, the heavy breeze, the smell of the grill, the feel of a picnic bench, the food.  Oh, the food of summer.  I love it so much.  Almost as much as I love Spring foods … and Winter foods … and Fall foods.  OUH – it’s almost Fall!  I love Fall foods.  Wait.  What were we talking about?  Oh, right.  Summer foods … like this awesome, fresh, and very summery Chicken Tostadas with Guacamole & Pico de Gallo recipe!
