Smoky Chicken Tostadas

Smoky Chicken Tostadas

Our Lightly Salted Tortilla Chips are a large, authentic size and the perfect vehicle for these chicken tostadas.

Each large quarter cut chip is loaded with cheese and smoky chicken for a delicious combination of flavours in every bite. We’ve used our Garlic and Guajillo Taco Mix for an instant boost of flavour and topped with Smoky Chipotle Salsa, but you could use any of our Fajita and Taco Mixes and Authentic Salsas.

Serve this Chicken Tostadas as an appetizer during a Mexican feast. For the main course try serving either this easy chicken fajitas recipe or this slow cooker barbacoa beef recipe.

  4. Shred chicken with 2 forks, then top each Gran Luchito Lightly Salted Tortilla Chips with a few pieces of the meat, followed by a slice of mozzarella.
  5. Place each nacho bite onto a baking tray and place back in the oven to melt the cheese.
  6. Once melted, top each nacho with a spoonful of Gran Luchito Chipotle Salsa, sliced spring onion and coriander. Serve on a platter.
