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.

Nice but similar to what I can make myself with spices already in cupboard. Much better ones to choose from .

Irfa - Jan 26, 2019

Delicious! I do feel like the seasoning fell a little short for the amount of chicken but tastes great.

Jo - Jan 22, 2019

Yummy!! The toasted tortilla was a real different edge for me. Loved breaking bits off an eating with my hands. Added a bit of creme fresh to lighten the taste. So nice!

Loved the flavours

Chris - Dec 18, 2018

I didn't exactly stick close to the actual recipe but this was lovely. I used cucumber and red onion for the salad and did the chicken as instructed. I then made wraps for my lunch at work using the jalapeno sauce, chicken, 'salsa', lettuce, cheese and some mayo. Absolutely delicious like this. I'll order again and may even follow the recipe a bit closer next time.

Karl - Dec 16, 2018

These were great, my wife won't eat courgettes but she relished these.

Shaun - Dec 15, 2018

Lovely flavours, but go easy on the jalapeno sauce though if you don't like it too spicy. we added sour cream . too much for 4 small tortilla we filled 6 and still had a little bit left over

Caroline - Dec 14, 2018

Filling, and really Flavourful

Really, really good.

Nicola - Dec 07, 2018

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.

Quite nice but really needs lime with it.

Sarah - Nov 16, 2018

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

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
