Dinner Tonight: Chicken Fajita Tostadas


I am super into tostadas these days!  They're easy, they're crunchy, they last forever in the pantry, so you can whip them up in no time flat.  This is one of those dinners that I would tell my Grandmother to make on those random Wednesday afternoons when she calls me at 4:45 and says, "Shay Lynn, what am I going to make for supper tonight that's easy and I don't really have to cook?".  Grandmother, this recipe is for you!!


The recipe starts with this awesome already chopped and fully cooked fajita chicken meat (it also comes in steak).  I buy it at the regular grocery store but I also know places like Sam's and Costco sell it too.  Some days, quick and easy is the only way to go.  Here's what else you need...

Shopping List
1-2 bags pre-cooked chicken fajita meat (I say each bag feeds 2 people)
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 onion, chopped
Tostada Shells
Tab's Guacamole, sour cream, salsa and/or cheese for topping
A little Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) and Salt & Pepper

Heat a few tablespoons of EVOO over medium-high heat in a large skillet.  Add onion and bell pepper in and saute about 7-8 minutes.  Add in chicken and heat through (about another 5-6 minutes).  Take your tostada shell and top with your chicken and onion/bell pepper mixture and any other toppings you like.

Done.  Finished.  A perfect week day supper.


Little Kensington was excited about them!


Silly girl!

I am so glad to see you use that pre-cooked chicken fajita meat! I get mine at Sam's, but recently got "in trouble" with the family young cooks because they came over for fajitas on the 4th of July and I thought we could "grill" the meat on our new grill, but they said I should have gotten fresh chicken, cut it up, seasoned it, then on the grill! With such a big crowd, I was going for easy since I knew I would be cutting veggies, doing corn, etc. so this was perfect! I didn't hear any complaints as they stuffed their faces - haha!!! Love your recipes!!! Thanks for sharing!

I just tried this recipe tonight and I LOVED it! I also tried your buffalo chicken tostadas last week. I love that your recipes are simple to make so that even a novice in the kitchen (like me) can do it! Thanks so much for sharing!
