My Favorite Tostada Toppings
The great thing about chicken tostadas is that you can customize them with as many toppings as you like, so everyone is happy. Here are some suggestions for my favorite toppings:
- Refried beans
- Black beans
- Your favorite cheese
- Pico de gallo
- Sour cream
- Bell peppers
How To Make Chicken Tostadas
Chicken Prep – Start by cooking your chicken completely. Once cooked, you’ll want to shred it until you have 2 heaping cups. If you need more, you can easily double the recipe. I would also recommend using meat claws to shred it because it’ll be hot and these just make it easier to handle.
Marinate – Place all of the spices in a mixing bowl and stir until they’ve blended together. Toss in the chicken and stir it a little more until all of the chicken has been coated. Let it sit and marinate while you prepare the rest of meal.
Tostada Prep – Wash and cut all of the vegetables you plan on using for your chicken enchiladas. You’ll also want to warm up the refried beans. Separately, add the chili powder to the sour cream and give it a good stir until they’re fully mixed.
Compile – I like to use corn tostada shells as the best of my chicken tostadas but you can also use regular corn or flour tortillas. You can’t find the tostada shells, you can also take the regular tortillas and baked them to turn them nice and crispy. Then layer your tostadas with the honey and lime chicken and other toppings you love.
