Chicken, Bacon, Ranch Tostadas

If you love the idea of a wrap, but want something a little lighter in these hot months, give tostadas a try. Simple, fresh ingredients, minimal cooking, and crunch-tastic - these are definitely the way to go when you're looking for a great meal that everyone will enjoy and you don't have more than 15 minutes to spare. Here's how:

12 tostadas ($.99)
1 heart of Romaine (or half a head of Iceberg), shredded $.29
1 1/2 C. shredded cheddar cheese ($.95)
1 boneless, skinless chicken breast (pre-cooked), sliced very thin ($1.09)
6 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled ($.50)
1 C. diced tomatoes, if desired ($.50)
1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped ($.25)
1 bottle (12-16 oz.) ranch dressing ($.29 after coupons)

Drizzle tostada lightly with ranch, top with any (or all) of the above ingredients, drizzle again with ranch, if desired.

Yields = 3-4 servings
Cost: $4.86
Cost per tostada: $.41
