Chicken Leftover Tostada

Submitted by: CHEF_MEG

Introduction

Tostada means toasted in Spanish, and in this simple recipe, Chef Meg makes a crunchy, crispy, chewy, cheesy tostada using leftovers from her Slow Cooker Provencal Chicken and Beans dish. Tostada means toasted in Spanish, and in this simple recipe, Chef Meg makes a crunchy, crispy, chewy, cheesy tostada using leftovers from her Slow Cooker Provencal Chicken and Beans dish.
Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    2 servings (2 cups) Slow Cooker Provencal Chicken and Beans
    4 8-inch corn tostadas*
    4 c mixed salad greens
    3/4 c tomato salsa
    1/2 c monterey jack cheese, shredded

    *Some grocery stores carry tostadas, which are slightly drier and crispier than tortillas. If you can't find them, use corn tortillas--or your favorite kind of wrap.

Directions

Preheat oven to broiler setting. Place tortillas on a sheet pan. Layer on 1/2 cup of the bean mixture then salsa and 1/8 cup (1 ounce) of cheese. Heat under broiler just until the cheese melts. Place a cup of mixed greens on top of each tostada and serve.

    I think I would like this better if the greens were added after heating so they remained cool and crisp. - 1/6/10

    I loved this leftover meal! So delicious! Next time I will broil them for a little longer, we wanted them to be a bit more toasty. - 9/20/09

    I made this, but with a low-carb high-fiber tortilla, and I put it in the toaster oven until it was crisp. Really yummy, and a great way to use the leftovers from the original chicken dish. - 1/21/10

    I really liked that I could use leftovers from a different dish for a totally new dish with this recipe! I made this in a pan and didn't use the tostadas. We loved this recipe even more than the original! - 1/8/10

    I tried it both ways - greens on the bottom toasted and on the top cold - I kinda like the toasted better... I heated in microwave for about 25 seconds and the meat mixture was already hot - it was just right I will definitely make again! - 7/18/10

    i found the italian flavor from the original dish to be contradictory with the salsa. but it was good. i used whole wheat tortillas and put them under the broiler for a few minutes before topping them. they stayed crispy. - 11/4/10

    I used the leftover Salsa Chicken recipe. Toasted up a high fiber low carb tortilla and put the lettuce and chopped tomato on top. So filling and so good for losing weight. - 1/19/10

  • We liked this better than the Slow Cooker Chicken Provincal and Beans. I suggest heating the meat/bean mix and the salsa before putting on the tostadas and topping with cheese. It would stay hot longer. I'll be making this one again! - 1/16/13
