Chicken Tostadas are Piled High with Flavor!

A chicken tostada (a type of Mexican tostada) is an authentic Mexican dish that layers creamy refried beans, moist chicken, luscious avocado, and crisp shredded lettuce on top of a warm, crispy corn tortilla. Topped with sour cream, shredded cheese, and a drizzle of GOYA® Hot Sauce, every mouthful delivers a burst of flavor and crunch that your family will find irresistible.

Mexican tostadas are the best of home cooking, Mexican style!

Step 1

Add chicken bouillon mixture to medium saucepan over medium-high heat; bring to boil. Add chicken; lower heat to medium. Simmer until chicken is cooked through, about 20 minutes. Transfer chicken to plate to cool; shred and set aside.

Step 2

Meanwhile, heat oven to 180˚F; place baking sheet inside oven. Heat ½” oil in medium skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering, but not smoking. Add one tortilla; cook until crisp and golden brown on both sides, flipping once, about 1 minute. Transfer to paper towel-lined plate to drain, and then transfer to baking sheet in oven. Repeat with remaining tortillas.

Step 3

To assemble tostadas, spread 3 tbsp. refried beans on each crisped tortilla. Divide reserved chicken, lettuce, tomato and avocado evenly among tortillas. Serve with salsita, pico de gallo, sour cream and cheese, if desired.

Tostadas in Minutes!

To shave 20 minutes off the total time of the Chicken Tostadas recipe, forget cooking the chicken from scratch (step 1). Instead, buy a rotisserie chicken at the grocery store and shred it at home. To do, using two forks, shred the pre-cooked, seasoned chicken, then pile on tortillas.
