Chipotle Chicken Tostadas

If you’re craving a tasty, bit-sized snack or appetizer with a ton of flavor for your next party, get together or the big game, then you have to try these Chipotle Chicken Tostadas. They’ve got a good texture and crunch, so they’re seriously good! We’ve taken these to parties as an appetizer, and even had them for dinner with some tasty sides or a salad.

True confession time.

I could eat appetizers for dinner most nights of the week! Grilled pesto shrimp skewers [2] and Loaded Tater Tot Nachos [3] are some of my favorites!

That’s why I like these tostadas. The recipe was given to me by my aunt and I think it makes the perfect presentation, plus it has my favorite – avocado!

And you know, I love to use my muffin pan [4] for more than just muffins and cupcakes!

How to Make Chipotle Chicken Tostadas

These quick, easy, versatile tostadas are the perfect way to use up any leftover chicken. Or, if you’re in a hurry, purchase a roasted chicken and just shred some chicken for the recipe. Either way, it turns out wonderful mixed with the chipotle pepper sauce.

We enjoy these tostadas a lot during the summer. They pair with chips and salsa and a craft beer very well, just ask my husband! The great thing through, this recipe works for any season. It’s bold flavors pair well with wintery comfort food too.

The first step for making these delicious bites, cut your tortillas into triangles.

Next, spray them with non-stick spray and then place them in your muffin cups to crisp them in and oven.

Then you mash your avocado, sour cream, tomato, lime juice, garlic, and cilantro together in small bowl. Salt to taste and chill. Cook ketchup, sugar, chipotles, soy sauce, vinegar, chili powder, and chicken in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat for 8 minutes, or until sauce is syrupy. (is that a word?!)

Finally, top each tostada with avocado mixture, then chicken mixture. Finish it off with a small dollop of sour cream, cilantro and lime zest! Beautiful!
