Expectation vs Reality: Chicken & Poblano Tostadas

After the last delivery arrived late, Blue Apron comped me for three boxes of two meals each. The first free box arrived on time and I tore into it in order to cook up the Chicken & Poblano Tostadas with Roasted Zucchini. Blue Apron's description is as follows:

The gentle, smoky flavor of poblano is used two ways in the topping for these tostadas: the sautéed fresh pepper is tossed with tender bites of chicken spiced with ancho chile powder (made from poblanos that have been dried and smoked). To pair with our zesty tostadas, we’re serving roasted zucchini topped with tart lime juice, Mexican spices, and crumbly queso blanco—a nod to classic elote seasonings.

This was a pretty easy recipe to make. The only issue I had was with the tostadas. I left them in the oven a bit too long and they started to inflate. But, I quickly recovered them and they deflated. They didn't turn out as golden brown as they did in the picture, but they still tasted great. And, surprisingly, the roasted zucchini came out perfectly.

Here's the Expectation vs Reality for comparison:
