Tostadas De Pollo (Chicken Tostadas)


Tostadas (store bought or make your own by deep-frying corn tortillas)
Cooked chicken (shredded)
4 tomatoes, diced
1 white/yellow onion, chopped
2 jalapenos, seeded and diced
salt and pepper
Refried beans
shredded lettuce
sour cream
favorite salsa
red onion, cut in thin slices
2 limes, juiced

Sautee onion in a skillet and then add tomatoes, jalapenos and the chicken. Season with salt and pepper.
Grab a tostada and smear refried beans
Add chicken, lettuce, salsa, cheese, sour cream and red onions (read below how to prepare the red onions). In a plastic container (w/ a lid), put the red onions, lime juice and salt, cover. Shake the container every so often to make sure the onions are evenly covered with the juice and salt. The lime juice will cook the onions.
Here's the finished product! You can also add avocado slices on the top.
Ok, if you feel lazy or don't have time to make salsa, you can use this sauce. It comes in a yellow can and I believe the other side has a picture of a duck(pato). The salsa is pretty good for tostadas.


  1. I like that you gave me an easy way out on the salsa. This looks good, I think I will do that for dinner tonight. Those onions kind of weird me out though...

  2. so that white and yellow plate? my mom had those and they are all gone and broken now and i had serious nostalgia when i saw yours...*sigh* I keep my eyes peeled whenever i hit a thrift store, no such luck yet...

  3. Marcee, those are Grandma Webb's plates. We used some of them while we lived in her house. I told Glen that Corelle dishes are my next purchase. They are super break resistant!
