Crispy Turkey Tostadas

November/December 2008

Your rating: None Average: 4.5 (63 votes)

Shredded leftover turkey tops homemade tostadas in this Tex-Mex favorite. Making your own tostada shells from fresh corn tortillas is easier than you might think—crisp them up in the oven while you prepare the toppings. Choose either regular petite diced tomatoes or those with added jalapeños, depending on your inclination for spicy food. Serve with black beans, rice and extra salsa or hot sauce on the side.

"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! "

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.


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.


These were not only delicious, but very fast & easy. I used a rotisserie roasted chicken from the deli dept. Dinner in less than 30 minutes!!


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.


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.
