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.

Not sure about the courgette or sweet corn in this. Found the tortilla got soggy quickly which spoiled it. Flavours okay.

Karen - Nov 03, 2019

Nice. Sour cream would have improved this. Also would be good to give option of avocado but biggest thing missing was sour cream

Lovely texture and taste combination. Was not too hot at all, just a nice tingly feeling on lips. Bit messy to eat but lovely just the same

Helen - Oct 05, 2019

Very salty

Amanda - Oct 01, 2019

Very tasty. Used chicken thighs as we prefer them to breast and they were very moist and tender. Also replaced the courgette with a red pepper and that worked well to.

Amazing and so tasty with very few ingredients

Claire - Sep 02, 2019

Mediocre flavour and took longer than suggested.

Nancy - Sep 02, 2019

Simple and enjoyable and a nice amount of spice for a weekday comfort tea. I'd amend the recipe card to make sure the tostadas are toasting while the chicken is cooking otherwise the chicken is overdone

Yvonne - Sep 01, 2019

Spicy but really tasty

Sarah - Aug 30, 2019

Love this. It's that simple.
