1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

3. Grill chicken for 6 to 7 minutes per side or until cooked through. Remove from the grill and allow to rest five minutes; dice or shred and toss with remaining BBQ Sauce. Keep warm.
4. While the chicken is grilling, prepare the salsa by combining all of the ingredients in a small bowl; mix well.
5. Mash the avocado using the back side of a fork against the side of a small bowl. Add the garlic salt and cilantro; mix well.
6. To serve, spread avocado over each tostada before topping with prepared chicken and salsa. Finish with a pinch of cojita cheese and serve immediately.
