Add the chicken, chipotles, and ¼ cup water. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until the chicken is very tender, 35 to 45 minutes.

Fry 2 tortillas at a time until browned and crisp, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Drain on a paper towel–lined baking sheet. Top the tostadas with the chicken and Crunchy Slaw. Serve with the lime wedges.
