If you can't find ground chicken, grind your own by putting raw skinless, boneless chicken in a food processor. Pulse with the chopping blade until roughly chopped for the best texture. Tortillas are usually fried for tostadas, but here the tortillas are baked for a crunchy texture.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°.

Step 2

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; sauté 2 minutes or until onion begins to soften. Add cumin, chipotle, and cinnamon; cook 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Add chicken; cook 4 minutes or until chicken is done, stirring to crumble. Add salsa, water, and salt; cook 3 minutes or until slightly thickened. Stir in cilantro and lime juice; remove from heat.

Step 3

While chicken cooks, place tortillas directly on oven rack; bake at 400° for 5 minutes or until slightly crisp. Place 1 tortilla on each of 4 plates; top each tortilla with 1/4 cup lettuce, 3/4 cup chicken mixture, 1/4 cup cheese, and 1 tablespoon sour cream.

This is quick and easy to make.The tortilla got nice and crispy in the oven. Has great flavor and the chipotle chile pepper gave it the right amount of kick. Will definitely make this again.

This is one of my family's all-time favorite recipes. We make it almost once a week! I usually use ground turkey, since it is a little more accessible. Also, we make homemade refried black beans and put them on the tortilla first, then the lettuce and meat. Our kids love it, and so do we.

Excellent recipe. Absolutely delicious. I used half the chipotle chili powder because it was a family meal, and didn't crisp the torts. It is my 8 year olds new favorite meal. Cooking Light delivers another great tasting recipe.

Pretty yummy. Went heavier with the spices since ground chicken can be blend; probably didn't need as much cinnamon. Next time will use flour tortillas instead. Otherwise a good, quick, easy dinner
