I am in love with these bbq chicken tostadas! They are like a cross between a tostada and a bbq chicken pizza. Both if which I love. It includes chicken, barbecue sauce, mozzarella, and green onion. Fresh cilantro is also another good option. Use it in place of the green onion or in addition to.

This really is a quick dinner to make. Especially if you just use some rotisserie chicken. Just prep the chicken while you cook the corn tortillas in the oven.

Usually when I make tostadas, I use those ready to use versions that they have at the grocery stores. You know, the ones that are a like a big round tortilla chip. Well, this time I made my own tostada shells with corn tortillas. Now let me tell you, it was so worth the extra effort to make my own tostada shells. I even add a little salt to one side when I bake them. They taste so much better. I don’t think I’ll ever buy those pre-made toastada shells again.
