Lauren's Mexican Kitchen

Easy to make and delicious. Chicken, cheese, and salsa never looked so good!

Salsa Chicken Tostatas 

  • 1 can 10-12oz canned chicken
  • 3 Tbsp jalapeno or other hot pepper
  • 1 1/2 c picante salsa
  •  1/2 c shredded cheddar or Mexican cheese
  • 4-6 6" yellow corn tortillas, fried or baked*
  • 1-2 hungry friends
  • Optional: 1-2 tomatillos
1) Slice hot pepper in half.

2) Cut out the pith and seeds out of the pepper.
3) Dice somewhat finely.
4) Put rinsed tomatillos in a medium saucepan and cover them with water. Set the saucepan over medium heat. Once it comes to a simmer, cook for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the tomatoes and tomatillos are soft and mushy but not coming apart. Remove them with a slotted spoon
5) Combine salsa, tomatillos, and diced peppers in a blender and puree.

6) Heat salsa puree in a saucepan over med-high heat until it starts to bubble. *Skip this step for a cold option.*
7) Add chicken to the salsa and use a wooden spoon to break up the chunks of chicken.
8) Heat until chicken is evenly combined with the salsa.
9) Spread a layer of the Salsa Chicken over each fried tortilla and sprinkle with cheese. Enjoy!

*Corn tortillas can be found already fried in supermarkets if you choose not to fry your own.
