So in case you are wondering what is a tostada? A tostada is an oven-baked or pan-fried corn tortilla or flour tortilla.

The tortillas are stacked up with a number of great ingredients like:

  • Lettuce
  • Beans
  • Egg
  • Poultry

How To Make Chicken Tostadas

To make this recipe start with the Mexican tortillas or corn tortillas.

Spray these tortillas on both sides with cooking spray. Preheat your oven to 400℉ and bake the tortillas for 6 minutes per side crisp and crunchy.

In the meanwhile thinly slice the onion using a mandoline slicer. Then preheat a skillet and add olive oil to the pan.

Add the sweet peppers to the pan and pan-fry them soft and translucent. Now add the onion but keep half to decorate the tostada.

Then shred some slow cooker chicken or a rotisserie chicken. Stir the chicken through the sweet pepper and onion mix in the skillet.

Thinly slice the scallion and add it to the skillet as well. Keep on stir for 4-5 minutes to warm up the chicken.

Make the refried beans. Take the baking sheet out of the oven and spread refried beans on the corn tortillas then 2-3 tablespoons of chicken mix.

Sprinkle some diced avocado on top and serve your tostadas immediately.

Can You Make Tostadas Ahead Of Time?

You can make them ahead of time but tostadas are best eaten fresh, just when they are made. I recommend you separate the tostada shells and toppings. 

When you store them combined chances are the tostada shells will get soft and soggy. 

How To Store Tostadas?

The best way to store crispy tostadas is to put them in an airtight food container or in a Ziploc bag. Store them in a kitchen cabinet or on the counter at room temperature.

Just like bread tostadas do not refrigerate well. They lose their crispness when stored in the fridge.

How To Reheat Tostada Shells

You can reheat the tostada but it is necessary when you add warm toppings. This will warm the tostada shells as well.

You can reheat them in:

  • Oven – preheat your oven to 350℉. Put the tostada shells on a baking sheet and heat them in the middle of the oven for 3 minutes or until warm
  • Air Fryer – preheat the Air Fryer 325℉ for 3 minutes. Put the tostadas in a stack in your Air Fryer basket. Heat for 1 to 2 minutes or until warm
