Richard H. Turner, Director of Meatopia and Turner & George, has put his own spin on this delicious Mexican street food classic. Originally a way of using up stale tortillas (by frying them), this dish was so good that it wasn’t long before people started using fresh tortillas to make tostadas.Richard uses mozzarella on top which adds a nice twist to the dish and helps cool down the spiciness of his jalapeño sauce and zingy pico de gallo salsa.

Our 20 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Preheat your grill to medium-high. Mix 1/4 of the red onion in a bowl with the chopped tomato and the Pico de Gallo Mix. Put aside.

  • 2.

    Sprinkle the Tostada Seasoning over the chicken and toss to coat. Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and then fry the chicken for 2 mins. Add the courgette, the rest of the red onion and the sweetcorn to the pan and continue to fry for 4-5 mins, or until the chicken is done and the veg has browned. Drizzle in the Jalapeño Sauce and stir well. (This sauce is spicy so put a little in first if necessary)

  • 3.

    Arrange the tortillas in a single layer on a baking sheet and put them under the grill for 3 mins to lightly brown them, then remove from under the grill. Spoon some of the chicken mixture onto the centre of each tortilla and then sprinkle some mozzarella cheese onto each tortilla. Put them back under the grill for 2 more mins, or until the cheese has melted.

  • 4.

    Sprinkle some of your tomato salsa over each Chicken Tostada and garnish with some coriander leaves (if using). Serve with some salad (if having) along with the rest of the tomato salsa.

Very quick and easy to make. The flavours were delicious. It has a bit of heat to, which is just how we like it, but if you’re not really into hot spices, I would add less of the jalapeño sauce. Or add a spoon natural yoghurt on the side to help cool it a little.

Caroline - Jun 11, 2018

The pico de gallo was too strong, we just added a bit this time and it was delicious.

Antonia - Jun 06, 2018

They were amazing so spicy.

Anna - Jun 04, 2018

Delicious easy to make.

Abi - May 31, 2018

Loved this! So tasty and fresh. I chucked in a chopper pepper and added sour cream and avocado at the end which was lovely!

Lindsey - Mar 30, 2018

Nice twist on fajitas, really enjoyed it

Lindsey - Mar 30, 2018

Nice twist on fajitas, really enjoyed it

Dominique - Mar 27, 2018

Loved it! I also didn't use courgette, and I smashed up some avocado on the tortillas. Very nice!

kevin - Mar 20, 2018

Nice, we didn’t use courgette

Allison - Mar 01, 2018

Tasty but quite awkward to eat

Rebecca - Feb 27, 2018

Tasteless and too spicy

Diana - Feb 25, 2018

Yum! And the leftovers were even more tasty the next day

Deb - Feb 17, 2018

Tasty

Katherine - Feb 16, 2018

Yummy!

kevin - Feb 12, 2018

Yummy, half the jalapeño seems to be about right for a 12yr old

Katy - Jan 30, 2018

Probably wouldn’t get this one again. It was nice but a bit boring, probably because we have fajitas a lot and it was quite similar!

Ryan - Jan 23, 2018

Liked this one, did it with cheddar, used all the jalapeno sauce but didn't find it too spicy.

Jacqueline - Jan 22, 2018

Juice from the vegetables made the bread soggy. Disappointing

Jane - Dec 31, 2017

Very disappointing. Just didn't have any zing, even with all of the sauce. I agree with a previous review that it would be better with cheddar but even so will be unlikely to order again.

kevin - Dec 27, 2017

Great, used less jalapeño sauce to lower the heat

Katherine - Dec 18, 2017

Delish!

Karin - Dec 11, 2017

Very nice quite spicy

Ema - Nov 24, 2017

Spices are wonderful and just the right amount of heat

kevin - Nov 20, 2017

Very nice, opted to leave out the jalapeño as it was going to be too spicy for our son. It was nice anyway, plenty of guacamole added to this dish

Kelly - Nov 10, 2017

Amazing just the right amount of spice x

kevin - Nov 08, 2017

Quite yummy, I tried substituting flat bread (I had in the cupboard) but it made it a little too heavy, didn't use much of the hot sauce . Agree with another comment that something creamy would add to this dish, we used a little mayonnasie but guacomole would be excellent. Much liked by the 12yr old

Annie - Nov 05, 2017

Very good, didn't use too much of the hot sauce. But very tasty.

Rachel - Nov 04, 2017

Really tasty, could have done with something creamy to go with it like a guacamole or some type of soured cream

Robyn - Oct 19, 2017

Although we enjoyed it, we agreed it would be better with cheddar cheese. Also, medium grill was much too high to warm the tortillas and I burned the first batch!

kaylegh - Oct 17, 2017

Yum!

J - Oct 10, 2017

Loved the flavour
