BBQ Chicken Tostadas with Peach Salsa

Yesterday my girlfriends and I had a blast celebrating mine and Megan's birthdays! We went to Malibu Family Wines and enjoyed a delicious cheese spread and several bottles of wine. It was the perfect afternoon sitting, relaxing and enjoying each others company!
 With Meg and Amie! I am so happy that Meg brought Amie into my life, I can't wait to be her assistant ballet teacher this year!
 Em, Meg and Julie! Such Lovelies!
 My 3BS! I have the most incredible friends!

 Our fun dinner in Malibu. Five years later, I still pinch myself that I live here and am able to experience this gorgeous view!
 Thank you Em for planning my perfect day. I love you!!

Peaches are so delicious right now, you need to make this recipe just for the Peach Salsa! Yum!

Diced all ingredients for salsa, mix together and set in fridge until ready to use.

Fry corn tortillas in oil until crisp. Remove and drain on paper towels. Season with salt.

Grill chicken for 4-7 minutes per side. I got this side a little too crisp...don't do what I do...
Remove chicken from grill and shred.
