I was recently invited to become part of the 2015 Better with Leerdammer Blogger team. As a member of the team I would be challenged to create a sandwich with the ingredients provided for five days running. I am a big fan of Leerdammer and so for me, this is a delicious challenge to fulfil! I also love sandwiches! This is a definite win/win situation! This is Day Four!
The ingredients list for day four was as follows: Cooked chicken breast, canned sweet corn, tomato salsa, tortilla wraps, Leerdammer Toastie and Burger, Mango, Strawberries
I used all of the ingredients with the exception of the corn (because my IBS hates corn) and the tomato salsa. I just did not think tomato salsa fit in very well. I added some refried beans, some of the vegetables (peppers and onions) left from the other day, lettuce left from the other day and sour cream left from the other day.
I think this was my favourite sandwich/lunch so far this week, and Todd really enjoyed it also. I love Mexican flavours and as a North American, tortilla wraps always scream Mexican food to me! I thought of tacos, and then I thought no . . . too messy. Tostadas! A tostada is like a kind of a mexican pizza . . . with the crisp tortilla wrap acting as a base for other ingredients.
The tortillas were topped with some spicy refried beans and then a mix of spicy cooked chicken and vegetables . . . topped with the Leerdammer and baked, even on it's own this would have been tasty. But I wanted more than tasty. I wanted fantabulous! And I got it . . .
The strawberries and mangos screamed salsa to me. I knew that I could make a really delicious fruity spicy salsa with them and that it would go wonderfully with the other flavours, as odd as they might seem at the outset. They actually all go together beautifully and these tostadas were fabulously delicious! WE loved these. With a garnish of lettuce and sour cream and that spicy fruited salsa on top they went down a real treat!

Serves 4A delicious combination of sweet and spice! It may sound a bit unusual, but the flavours all work together beautifully!
Preheat the oven to 200*C/400*F/ gas mark 6.
The cheese used in this was Leerdammer Toastie & Burger. It has fabulous melting properties. With thicker slices and a richer, creamier recipe for better melting, LEERDAMMER® Toastie & Burger is the perfect filling for a deliciously melty toasted cheese sandwich or cheese burger.
