    great dish - will definitely make again. i added a can of black beans in with the chicken mixture instead of having them on the side.

    Yummy and easy to make. The family really liked this one. I used corn tortillas, frozen corn, and added a can of chiles like another reviewer did. Will do this one again!

    I make these tostadas often and they always turn out very good. I add a bit more of all the spices than what is called for and also stir in a can of green chiles. Consistently delicious!

    Great recipe! It's the middle of winter so I used frozen corn and it turned out fine. The only thing I didn't like was how the center of the tortilla eventually got soggy. Next time we might slice the tortilla into wedges, broil each, and dip them one by one into the chicken mixture so it stays crispier. I served this with black beans and some chardonnay and it was a fabulous, easy meal.

    SOO GOOD! I use regular red tom. salsa and it turns out great. I also add black beans into the chicken mixture which is a nice addition! It is better with fresh corn but frozen works well too!! YUM!

    I love these. They come together in no time, taste great, and even my two toddlers will eat them. If the recipe has too much sodium as written, reduce the amount of cheese, and omit the salt. duh.

  • shaftermee Posted: 01/22/10

    The filling is very good and works fine to make in advance and reheat just before dinner. We found the tostada style messy and difficult to eat, but liked the filling enough to try again as soft tacos or enchiladas next time. I served with a dollop of sour cream and sprinkle of diced green onions on top which added nice flavor and color.

  • SaraKWelch Posted: 10/20/09
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    LOVE this recipe. I only make a few changes. I use white onion instead of red, and I use frozen, thawed corn instead of fresh. Also, and this is key, when preparing the tortillas, BROIL BOTH SIDES! I broil each for about 2 minutes on one side, then flip over and broil about one minute. Top with chicken mix and cheese, and broil one more minute or until the cheese is melty (but before the tortilla burns!). If you don't broil both sides of the tortilla, the un-broiled side will be squishy and gross. I've made this recipe for special occasions and everyone raves about it. It's also great when you have leftover chicken mix. You can broil up the tortillas as you need them the next day, or you can take the chicken mix to work and just eat it out of a warmed up tortilla.

    I have been making this recipe for about a year. I just crave it sometimes. This is just a great light weeknight dinner. I have even made it for unexpected guests and they rave about it too.

  • Flits21 Posted: 06/29/09
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    Excellent. I used corn tortillas to make it a bit healthier but probably should have crisped them a bit more as they were a bit soggy. 'tho i think the green salsa i bought was a bit watery. Used Cabot 50% lighter jalapeno jack. Served with mashed avocado

  • holaerica Posted: 05/12/09
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    A definite keeper! Fast, easy, and my husband absolutely loved it. He has already requested that I make it again and we're not even done eating! One small substitution - I used pepper jack in place of normal for a little extra kick and thought it was a great move.

  • KatieInPhilly Posted: 11/16/08

    A solid recipe. I used cubed chicken breasts and regular red salsa instead of green, but otherwise followed instructions. Served with Mexican rice.

  • rrican Posted: 06/29/10
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    FAMILY AND I LOVED IT! We used canned corn and mango salsa instead. I also cut the chicken in bite sizes to make it easier to eat. Served it with black beans (cooked them with cumin as well). Perfect dish for summer and GREAT presentation for a special occasion.

  • 4vryoung Posted: 07/15/09
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    This was very good and filling. We used squash instead of zuchini. Be sure to broil the tortillas on both sides - mine didn't take 3 minutes to brown so watch out! Tastes good leftover also, but not as crisp. I will definitely make this again.

  • ETHicks Posted: 12/01/08
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    This has turned into a regular recipe in my rotation. My husband really likes it (as opposed to the typical "It's pretty good"). Really easy for a weeknight meal.

  • shaeville Posted: 03/05/09
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    This recipe is delicious! I love the green salsa, and all the ingredients were perfect! The only thing that went wrong is that the tortillas caught on fire in the stove. Not using the broiler anymore for those, just microwaved whole to melt the cheese.

  • expcook Posted: 12/16/08
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    Excelent recipe. Next time I'll make a non-spicy one for the kids and spicy one for adults. I loved the flavours.I did add a bit more cumin than required. I had it in WW wrap and for my hubby did as the recipe said. Love it!

  • DavidC Posted: 05/22/09
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    Yummy and easy. I used canned corn and didn't broil nearly as long as specified. Also, I chopped up two chicken breasts into bite sized pieces rather than using chicken tenders.

  • pandaa Posted: 01/17/11
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    I always feel like I have to slave away in the kitchen for hours to produce a meal that is a huge hit for everyone. Not this one!!! It's so simple and easy. I even skip the step of pre-baking the tortilla and put the chicken mixture in the oven with the cheese on top of the tortilla. Everyone loves it. My husband says he could eat it every week and to add it to our "favorites" list. For an extra bonus, I add a fresh salsa of avocado, tomato, red onion and cilantro. yum

  • EllenFL Posted: 06/04/10
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    Been waiting to make this when my squash or zuchini came in and was not disappointed. This is a very forgiving recipe and I think would work with alot of leftover veggies in the fridge. Used zuchini, sweet white onions, and red mango salsa, because that's what I had. Also whole wheat tortillas. Did not have cilantro, but I think woould be great with it. Thought I missed the part about chopping the chicken so I just broke it up with a wooden spatula as it cooked. Great recipe to stretch if a crowd shows up - add black beans, more veggies, etc., like other reviewers said. I will broil both sides of the tortilla next time. YUM!

  • Jessie123 Posted: 05/06/09
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    Delicious. I used red salsa for the kids so it wasn't so spicy, which they loved and green salsa for my husband and I. The tostadas were yummy with a slight sweetness from the corn and onion. It's a definite keeper.

  • laylaz777 Posted: 07/09/10
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    This is a wonderful and easy weeknight meal! I used 2 chicken breasts and chopped into bite-sized pieces. Once chicken had cooked, I removed from the pan, sautéed vegetables separately and then added the chicken back in before adding the salsa. I used frozen corn and it was still delicious. This can also be served as tacos if you don’t want to deal with crisping the tortillas for the tostada part.

  • skspillman Posted: 01/12/09
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    These are delicious--a fast and yummy summertime meal. I used canned, drained mexi-corn instead of the fresh corn kernels and eliminated the cilantro. I also broiled the tortillas at first for 1 min. only and then broiled the tostadas for 1 min. after I topped the tortillas with the meat mixture and cheese.

  • osuziq370 Posted: 01/21/09
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    Delicious and extremely easy to make (and I'm a college student)! I also prefer it without the cheese so it's not as rich (or fattening). I also used corn tortillas for the extra "crunch." It will definitely be a recipe to keep for busy nights. Lots of leftovers!

    This recipe was DELICIOUS. I served with a side of Easy Cuban Black Beans, and it was such a hit. I always use the Frontera tomatillo salsa when recipes call for green salsa and it provides such great flavor. I would make this again for sure!

  • DGlikestocook Posted: 04/14/09
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    This was a great, quick, and easy dish to make. I used corn tortillas (avoiding wheat gluten), broiling both sides 1-2 minutes to crisp them up. I also used 1 large chicken breast, diced. I liked it, my husband liked it, and my 4 year old daughter liked it seperated out (she likes to be in control of how she mixes up her food). I will definitely be making this again.

  • ScottandRenee Posted: 03/14/09
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    Yummy Yummy Yummy. It was fun, easy and SO delicious. A fun one for my husband and I to make together. Keep an eye on the tostada browning in the broiler - don't walk away, it goes fast. And better to do it short...add topping and cheese and then back in for melting. We used chihuahua cheese. A keeper!

  • mtbike40 Posted: 06/03/10

    I cut the size because I'm only cooking for one. It's very good, and very easy to make. I added some chopped red pepper because I had some. and no cilantro because I don't like it. I'd certainly make this again.

  • Saecca Posted: 08/01/10
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    We loved this meal! Another great summer recipe. I used chicken breasts, so that changed the cook time a bit, and then I sliced them up. I also just made a "pie crust" out of the whole wheat tortilas on the bottom of a glass baking dish, sprayed with Pam, and then broiled to crisp a bit. I then added the mixture all over the top, and then broiled. I served it with rinsed black beans with a little bit of the green salsa added.

  • JJ1916ohio Posted: 08/19/09
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    Delicious and easy. I chopped the chicken up into little bits, increased the cumin used and added some garlic powder, cayenne and hot chili powder to give the chicken a little more kick. I made mine as a tostada, but when my friends get home later tonight I'll have them try it as a soft taco. Definitely good though and I'll probably make this again.

  • jenbusy2 Posted: 07/29/09
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    Very delicious. I didn't have flour tortillas, so I just fried up corn and they were yummy. My husband ate 6 of them and even my 2 year old ate some.

  • Lsulliv8 Posted: 06/08/09
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    This is an awesome dinner. I made it last night and can't wait to make it again! I was skeptical of the green salsa but it added a wonderful flavor. I turned it into a quesadilla under the broiler and it was delicious! Will definitely make again.

  • kdearing Posted: 07/06/09
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    Flavorful and flexible. I've done several variations on this. Ground chicken instead of chicken pieces (I think this is actually better than the original). Whole pinto beans for a vegetarian version. Just the vegi base (no meat) as a side dish (I served it tonight with seared scallops). I could go on. The flavors meld beautifully. Easy to prep ahead of time and then toss in the fry pan when ready to cook. And frozen corn kernels work just as well as fresh if you are thinking of cooking this when corn is not readily available.

  • pmrodgers Posted: 03/14/11
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    These are great, and so easy to make. I didn't put in the zucc because my kids dont' like it. Also used red taco sauce because I didn't have green. I shredded the chicken because it seemed weird to try to eat chicken strips. These would also be great as an enchilada or burrito.

  • KellyChasteen Posted: 06/27/09
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    WOW! My husband and I gobbled this one down. It was really relatively easy to make. Most of the work was just in preparation (chopping the veggies). I will absolutely use this one again and probably often for a go to recipe.

    Another OUTSTANDING recipe from cooking Light! Loved everything about it-great flavor, very easy to prepare and quick clean up - 1 dish meal. I followed the recipe as written but used whole wheat tortillas. Served with black beans and salsa on top. My picky hubby loved this mentioning 3 or 4 times how good it was. Excellent must try recipe!

  • ShingleSprings Posted: 06/20/09
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    I LOVE these tostados! I've made them for everyone! The chopping takes a few minutes, but is well worth it. I don't know why zucchini is added...don't taste it. I add black beans with the roasted corn, and add chopped tomatoes before serving. I use "hot" salsa verde to add zip. FABULOUS!

  • run2glory Posted: 07/25/09
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    This was great! My kids really liked it. I do think it was a bit spicy. I would not use as much cumin next time. I did change it a little bit. I used black beans and yellow squash instead of zucchini and corn. Really was good.

  • kad0303 Posted: 07/24/09
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    This is SO good. I don't really like veggies, so I put the veggies in the food processor so I could "hide" them in the chicken and salsa and it was delicious. Will definitely make this again and again.

    I enjoyed the meal, however my husband did not care for the corn and he preferred making soft tacos with the filling versus the tostadas. I will make again, however, I will probably delete the corn and add black beans and green chilis.

    This recipe has potential. Its a good recipe for a fast dinner, although it did take longer than 15mins. I added a bit different spice mix to the chicken. Cumin, Cayenne, and Paprika. The chicken was flavorful, but I am never a fan of using chicken tenders. I would use chicken breast next time. It was a bit difficult to eat as others have mentioned. I might use the mixture for enchiladas topped with the rest of the green sauce and a bit of cheese. I used a bit of left over mixture and made a mexican style soup with beans.

    This dish would also make a great appetizer. I used the breasts of a roasted whole chicken so the texture wasn't "sauted" more like "pulled chicken," that I usually use for bbq chick sandwiched.

  • oldruth Posted: 07/23/11

    I made this with with whole wheat tortillas, and I crisped them up on a skillet rather than under the broiler. I used chicken left over from Honey-Glazed Spicy Chicken Thighs, which added a lot of flavor. The cheese I had on hand was sharp cheddar, so that went on top, and I chopped up one of my home-canned jalapeno peppers for kick. Plain beans don't interest us, so I made refried beans with black beans and red bell peppers, and also served watermelon chunks. I think it would be bland as written.

    Easy to make, extremely delicious. I love the crunchy texture from the crisped tortillas. I topped with a bit of bottled "taco bell" sauce, though any other southwestern taco sauce would add some kick. I also used Perdue precooked grilled chicken strips to make this a bit faster.

    Be sure to broil BOTH SIDES of the tortilla- we use whole wheat. This gets 5 stars for simplicity and tastiness! I don't even like zucchini and I loved these.

    Very Good and easy recipe. I didn't have fresh cilantro or salsa verde but substituted 1tsp dried cilantro and salsa I had in the fridge. The only suggestion I'd make is to only broil the tortilla for about a min or not at all. I burned 2 batches,broiling the first at 3 min and the 2nd at 2 min.Served with blended cottage cheese instead of sour cream. Yummy!

    Oh my goodness, this recipe is now on my top 5 favorite recipes that align with my 2012 motto of being Delicious and Nutritious!!! I made just as recipe states but used corn tortillas instead of flour to cut down on the calories and sodium content. Although the recipe is great as is, next time I will play with it a little bit by adding some black beans maybe a little avocado on top. This also will make a great meat mixture for chicken taco salad. Great recipe hands down deserves all 5 Stars plus more. I am going to be making this again very soon.

To make it quicker, I used a rotisserie chicken which I chopped up and threw into the pan after sauteing the vegetables. I used 1.5x more corn and zucchini than recipe calls for. We didn't have green salsa so I just used regular salsa and it worked fine. I didn't realize how flavorful Monterey Jack cheese was --I'm glad I didn't substitute. Overall, very easy, quick, and flavorful weeknight meal.

    I used about 12 oz of a smoked rotisserie chicken to cut down the prep time. I added the chopped cooked chicken to the sauteed vegetables along with about 1/2 the spice mixture. The followed the recipe as written. Excellent!

    An easy and delicious anytime of the year recipe. Very fresh tasting and yummy. I couldn't find fat-free tortillas so I used 96% fat free and they were nice and crisp, too.

    Didn't look so good when coming together, but it looked great and tasted great at the end! Make sure your chicken is cut to bite size pieces before cooking.

    I made this for my family last night and they thought it was okay. I added more chicken because I wanted leftovers. Next time I make this, I'm going to make the chicken on the grill along with the zucchini and use fresh corn instead of frozen corn. When I read a review posted on MyRecipes about a highly rated recipe with 4 or 5 stars, I usually agree that the recipe is great. This one didn't turn out as great as I was expecting.

    I had some issues with this dish. The filling was delicious! I loved the cumin and the green salsa. But some of the vegetables let out too much juice and I didn't want to keep cooking the dish to let it evaporate in fear of over cooking the chicken. Using a slotted spoon, I piled the filling on the tortillas, but it still made the tortilla soggy in the middle. If I were to make this again, I will probably serve the toasted tortilla on the side.

    These were ok. I used whole wheat tortillas and toasted both sides as others have suggested but they didn't really crunch the way I hoped they would. The rest of the family said they'd have them again. I served them with sliced avocado and tomatoes on the side.

    This is now one of my husband's and my favorite dishes. I made it exactly as the recipe directs except, as I am gluten sensitive, I used rice tortillas. It was very filling for under 400 calories. Will be making this regularly!

    Dish is very good. Recipe is a little off, since it does not tell you to dice or shred the chicken. You, also don't want to combine the first three ingredients. It's the next three after the oil. I added the black beans into the mixture and added extra salsa verde. My husband loved it. Be careful when broiling the tortillas. It does not take 3 minutes, and they burn very quickly.

    This was a great recipe! Nice and flavorful and filling too. I served with black beans on the side, will definitely make again.

    This is a favorite. The second time I made it I added a half a can of Rotel and it was even better!

    Easy and delicious. A bit spicy for my husband, but I liked it. I served it with black beans on the side. I cut the tenders up before cooking, as well.

    Had to recook the flour tortillas the first time due to them burning but besides that everything went as planned. Use some dip or salsa with it and you have a great dish.

    Light and flavorful. Love the summer veggies and appearance.

    Great, delicious, quick summer meal, especially if like me you had too many zucchini. I used yellow squash as well and I use a chicken breast that I pan fry with a little water and then shred with a fork. I add some adobo seasoning and yum yum, enjoy!!

  • shelliemac Posted: 05/25/13

    Excellent!! When I broiled the tortillas the first 3 minutes they puffed up and were really well done. So on the second batch, I skipped the pre-broiling and just broiled the tortillas with the chicken mixture and cheese for three minutes, and they came out perfect! Served with salsa and sour cream.

    I am in love with this recipe! Soooo good! I used Mission brand tortillas (the Artisan Corn & Whole Wheat Blend), and so they were a bit smaller, but tasted amazing!

    Was great as written.added 1/2 red pepper and cut chicken up before cooking. Everyone loved... Even the kids.

    This was wonderful! I actually prepared the topping on the stove and then finished it on the grill. Delicious!

    My family absolutely loved this meal. I used grapeseed oil rather than the canola and we had enough for two meals (three people). Can't miss with this one!

  • pocagirl Posted: 01/08/14

    Very good! Made with and without chicken and both were excellent!

    These tostadas are delicious. I added a can of black beans and used pepper jack cheese to add a little more spice. My family loved them.

    Great mid-week dinner. I used EVOO, and sauteed the onion (used yellow) before cooking the chicken & added black beans to the mixture, and browned corn tortillas on both sides.

  • mburek225 Posted: 08/28/13

    Made this last night for me and my fiance...OMG so much flavor! This recipe will definitely be made again in our house :) We aren't big fans of cilantro, so we didn't put that in. I did add in black beans and then diced up some avocado to put on afterwards once the tostada came out. Delish!!!
