Chicken and Summer Vegetable Tostadas

Tostadas that can easily become soft tacos if you skip broiling the tortillas.



  1. Pre-heat broiler.
  2. Combine first 3 ingredients, stirring well. Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Sprinkle the spice mixture evenly over chicken. Add chicken to pan; sauté for 3 minutes. Add onion, corn, and zucchini to pan; sauté for 2 minutes or until chicken is done.
  4. Stir in salsa and 2 tablespoons cilantro. Cook 2 minutes or until liquid almost evaporates, stirring frequently.
  5. Working with 2 tortillas at a time, arrange tortillas in a single layer on a baking sheet; lightly coat tortillas with cooking spray. Broil 3 minutes or until lightly browned.
  6. Spoon about 3/4 cup chicken mixture in the center of each tortilla; sprinkle each serving with 1/4 cup cheese.
  7. Broil an additional 2 minutes or until cheese melts. Repeat procedure with remaining tortillas, chicken mixture, and cheese. Sprinkle each serving with about 3/4 teaspoon of remaining cilantro.
  8. Serve immediately, optionally with black beans.

This is AWESOME!! Hubby and I both loved it! I did halve the cumin from 1tsp to 1/2 tsp cumin and 1/2 tsp chili powder. We think this would make an awesome enchilada dish and will make it that way next time...add a little mild green enchilada sauce to the top along with the cheese. This is very yummy though and really satisfies those tostada cravings! Id like to add that even though I changed the amount of cumin and added some chili powder, I also cut my chicken into smaller bite sized pieces...this is a GREAT AS IS recipe and Id have to say besides my own and my moms, this was my favorite I tried from this site.

What a great tasting dish. A little high in carbs for my diet, but I will keep in on file for special treat dinners. After all, we need to treat our selves every now and then or we feel deprived, right?
