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.

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!

Katherine - Aug 03, 2018

Really tasty. Especially with a bit of lime juice and coriander all over.

Julie - Aug 02, 2018

It has a 2 chilli rating so I only used half of each dried spice pots and did not use the jalapeno sauce and topped with soir cream. Still very tasty but without the heat.

Sarah - Jul 30, 2018

Tasty but overall a little dry

Rebecca - Jul 22, 2018

Really tasty!

Kate - Jul 12, 2018


Steven - Jul 01, 2018

Very nice

Luke - Jun 30, 2018

Brilliant. Right level of spice and very tasty. Chucked some cucumber in salsa which added another flavour and texture.

Lucia - Jun 27, 2018

Add optional guacamole, i added some handmade and it was a great combination

Elaine - Jun 16, 2018

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

Susan - Jun 04, 2018

Delicious easy to make.

Abi - May 31, 2018
