Quick Chicken Tostadas – Easy Mexican Food Recipe

Quick Chicken Tostadas - Easy Mexican Food Recipe - Simple and absolutely delicious recipe for busy nights with the family!


  • 3 cups of cooked chicken breast, shredded – a rotisserie chicken works perfect, but any grilled chicken breast will do
  • 1/81/4 cup of lime juice – your preference. I’m not a huge fan of lime, so I go on the lighter side
  • 1/2 tsp. of chili powder
  • 1/3 tsp. of sea or kosher salt
  • 68 tostada shells
  • 1 can of refried beans
  • Shredded Mexican style cheese
  • Toppings – such as, sour cream, shredded lettuce, sliced tomatoes, avocado cubes, sliced radish, black olives – sliced, your favorite salsa


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
  2. Grab a medium sized bowl – Add the cooked chicken, lime juice and spices – Mix well
  3. Place the tostada shells on a baking sheet
  4. Spread a spoonful of refried beans across each tostada shell (be careful, the shells are fragile)
  5. Spoon some chicken over the beans and sprinkle with shredded cheese
  6. Place the tostadas into the oven and bake for about 8-10 minutes – or until cheese has melted and chicken is warmed through
  7. Pull the tostadas out of the oven and top with your favorite fixings. Enjoy!


  • I found my tostada shells in the ethnic section of Aldi’s grocery store
