Easy fast & delicious These were great using leftover grilled chicken fire roasted tomatoes & a can of green chilis. We also added a layer of refried beans (in which I added lime juice & garlic). The corn tortillas turned out perfect- not to crunchy as to fall apart and not tough at all. This was a big hit with my family!! Pros: The title says it all Cons: None
This is such a good recipe. Between this one and the lean and spicy taco meat with homemade shells I won't ever be able to buy shells again. I like to make my own fresh salsa to put in this instead of the canned. Laura Snyder CO
This is one of the best things I have ever made off this site - and I make a lot of things... We used our leftover turkey from Thanksgiving for this recipe but it is now a staple using poached chicken breast. Erin SI NY
I just made this and it was delicious. The tosadas baked nice and crisp and the color was a golden brown. So crunchy...my husband liked it also. The canned tomato and turkey were a tasty blend. I will make this again. retirednana Brentwood CA
Wow. These were AWESOME!!! We loved this recipe:) I didn't have either kind of cooking spray so I used "I can't believe it's not butter" spray and it worked fine. The tortillas were crispy and the tostadas were extremely yummy. I think I made them big though. We only got 6 servings out of it instead of 8.
This is by far my favorite thing I've ever made. I never ever have leftovers! It's such a popular dish in my family that I was recruited to cook at my parents' house the day after Thanksgiving because they knew I'd use the leftover turkey for these! I do sometimes use spinach instead of romaine but that's really based on the picky eaters in my family.
i love this way of making my own tostada shells. now i use them for any kind of topping. the other night i just melted jack cheese on them and topped it with leftover chicken salsa and very thinly sliced onion.
I used leftover turkey from the freezer. The filling was delicious quick and easy. I plan to make it again. I don't know what I did wrong but my tostados came out like cardboard. Maybe because I have a convection oven. My husband and daughter abandoned them and wrapped their fillings in flour tortillas.
Terrific and super kid-friendly. I poached chicken and followed the recipe otherwise. Just made it for my husband and me but something that's healthy without being "odd" in any way for suspecting children. Another one I'll make again.
Really great and really easy! My only complaint is that they were a little hard to eat--once you bit the tostada shell it was difficult to keep it together. However that is just the nature of tostadas!
Crispy Delight This recipe was so easy and so tasty. The only changes I made were to add lime juice to the mashed avocado and because I didn't have any leftover meat I used 3 cans of chicken breast. If you're going to have leftovers I recommend wrapping the avocado mixture in plastic wrap and sealing it in an airtight container. You can also reserve some tortillas because it's easy to quickly crisp the tortilla shells just before eating. I served this with refried beans. Pros: complimentary textures filling easy to make
