Guide On Making The Best BBQ Chicken Tostadas:


  • 8 tostada shells or 8 corn tortillas (brushed lightly with olive oil and baked for 3-5 minutes per side, until crispy)
  • 3 cups chicken (cooked & shredded)
  • 2 cups shredded cheese 
  • 1 1/2 cups barbecue sauce (divided)
  • 3 green onions (very thinly sliced)


Start by preheating your oven to 350 °F.

Then, lay out the tostada shells (or corn tortillas) evenly on 2 baking sheets.

After that, in a small bowl, add the chicken and only 1 cup of the barbecue sauce of your choice. Next, stir the mixture in order to combine both ingredients (to coat the chicken).

Now, evenly divide the chicken onto every single one of the tostada shells (or corn tortillas). Then top the BBQ chicken with the shredded cheese.

Next, place the BBQ chicken tostadas into the preheated oven. Bake the tostadas for approximately 7 minute or until the cheese has melted.

Once the tostadas have finished baking, take them out of the oven. Then sprinkle the tostadas with the leftover (half a cup) of barbecue sauce.

Finally, sprinkle with some green onions.
