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.

    Prepare the salsa

    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.

    Cook the chicken

    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 fry for 5 mins, or until the chicken is done and the veg has browned. 

    Drizzle in the JALAPENO SAUCE and stir well. (This sauce is spicy so go easy if necessary) 

  • 3.

    Cook the tostadas

    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.

Amazing, one of my top 10

Julie - Dec 06, 2018

Super tasty, just a little less heat in the salsa would have made all the difference.

Clare - Dec 05, 2018

Very tasty, a little less lime would be nice but I can’t fault them

Rachael - Dec 04, 2018

Love this, has a little kick and I used peppers instead of courgettes.

Janice - Dec 04, 2018

Surprisingly delicious! Really benefits from a good squeeze of lime juice just before serving. Also quite filling, which was surprising as I didn’t think it looked especially substantial.

Terence - Dec 03, 2018

I liked it, too hot for my wife careful with the jalapeño sauce.

Cameron - Dec 01, 2018

Really nice alternative to fajitas

Yummy, loved the tomato dressing

Kathryn - Nov 20, 2018

Seriously delicious!! Swapped courgette for peppers down to personal preference but I think that made it even better. A firm favourite!!

Philippa - Nov 17, 2018

Quite nice but really needs lime with it.

Sarah - Nov 16, 2018

Pretty tasty but not that different to an old el Paso kit

janice - Nov 15, 2018

Slightly spicier than I expected and would advise adding a little sour cream if you have a spice fear but I loved them

Mandy - Nov 13, 2018

Very tasty however lack of sauce made the tostadas dry and a little over cooked

Rebecca - Nov 13, 2018

Loved it

James - Nov 12, 2018

Loverly we will have this one again

Abbigail - Nov 12, 2018

Really tasty, but needed another element, we added sour cream. Also there’s like and Lettuce in the photos which is not in the instructions or recipe.

Jennifer - Nov 10, 2018


Gordon - Nov 06, 2018

A lot more prep than other simply cook meals but it was worth it. One of my favourites so far

Ania - Nov 03, 2018

Nice but more laborious than the average Simply Cook

Paul - Oct 29, 2018

Nice one, I added a bit of cheddar into the mosserella for a bit of sharpness. Didn't have any but a dollop of sour cream might be good.

Kayleigh - Oct 26, 2018

Lot of prep but worth the wait

Siobhan - Oct 09, 2018

Epic. Made enough for 6 easily by adding more courgette etc. Tasty and delicious. Added guacamole and soured cream and it was spectacular.

Jill - Oct 04, 2018


Nick - Oct 01, 2018

Pretty good, would suggest you add chilli if you like it hot. I will next time.

Debbie - Oct 01, 2018

I would give this 3.5 stars, very tasty but my mistake that the tortillas were under the grill for too long!! Also got fresh mozzarella as couldn’t get grated from the coop , didn’t work well. Would recommend though still!

Sam - Oct 01, 2018


Frances - Sep 25, 2018
