When you’re short on time pick up a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store along with a few other ingredients and these chicken tostadas are ready in 15 minutes!

This Lonche de Jamon or Molletes are also easy meals for busy weeknights.

How to Make Rotisserie Chicken Tostadas

The Tostadas can be baked, fried, or store-bought. I prefer the baked version, and you can make a big batch all at once in the oven.

Simply spray corn tortillas with oil and place them right on the oven racks and bake at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes or until crispy.

Next spread a layer of refried beans on the tostada. Canned are of course easiest, but I had frozen a batch of homemade beans that I simply heated and pulsed in the blender till smooth.

Now you’re going to shred all the meat from you rotisserie chicken. Or if you have leftover chicken from a meal before, then by all means use that too. Another great option is my 2 ingredient Salsa Chicken.

Toppings- Here’s where you can get creative. I did lettuce, tomato, Mexican crema, and jalapenos.

I’ve also topped these chicken tostadas with chunky salsa, or with shredded cheese for my kids. Or have a topping bar and let everyone choose what they want on their tostada. It’s fun, easy, and a stress free meal!
