Chicken Salad on Tostadas

Print Friendly and PDF

Tex-Mex flavors dominate in this quick and zesty Chicken Salad on Tostadas recipe. It’s an easy meal when you don’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen.

If you wish, you can also mix in additional vegetables, such as corn kernels and frozen peas, but we’ve kept the recipe simple. If you do not like jalapeno, just leave out.

For variety, serve chipotle or other flavored corn tostadas.
