A very fresh idea for a snack or meal.



  1. Spread the tostada with a tablespoon of smashed beans.
  2. Cover tostada with lettuce, chicken, salsa, a tablespoon of sour cream, onion and avocado.
  3. Spread all over with the Mexican blend cheese, salt and enjoy.

I cooked my chicken with salsa in the crockpot until it was falling apart, then used a fork to shred it. Kept everything else in the recipe was yummy. I did individual calorie count on all my ingredients, though, and came out well under the number given in the recipe...I use a lot of "lite" and low fat ingredients.

This is a good recipe and it's something that you can "dress" up or down. We make it a lot around here, just a different version each time. This also can be made low-fat and low-calorie. My version is only 150 ish calories a serving. Just be sensible and what you put with it. Also I cook my chicken with organic dipping salsa, with a little water added to get it a zesty taste.

Author needs to specify that the chicken should be shredded, right?

Tostadas have been a staple at my house for years - I actually make them with non-fat refried beans (rosarita brand) and no meat. We spread the beans, then lettuce, tomatoes, cheese & guacamole (homemade). I will try them with the chicken, though. Yummy and my kids love them!

This receipe says Induction for Atkins. No it isn't you are not to eat grains until you are in the OWL and even then not these corn tostadas.

This actually sounds and looks great. I would change a little bit to make it fit in my calories range but lots of possibilities thanks for sharing.

I enjoyed the chicken instead of my regular toastadas with hamb. My husband liked it too. I will make this again.
