Ingredients

Optional garnishes

  • diced green onion

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spread tortillas out on a baking sheet (you may require two) and brush with a bit of olive oil. Bake for 5-10 minutes per side, or until tortillas are crispy.
  • Meanwhile, mix together the shredded chicken and one cup of the BBQ sauce until evenly distributed.
  • Evenly divide the BBQ chicken among the crispy tortilla shells. Top with equal amounts of shredded cheese.
  • Bake for 6-8 minutes or until cheese has melted. Drizzle remaining BBQ sauce over each tostada and garnish with diced green onion, if desired. Serve warm.

Notes

*Make up a batch of the shredded chicken in advance for a super fast meal.
*If using store-bought BBQ sauce, try to find one that's lower in sugar. We often go to the natural section of the grocery store and tend to find lower sugar options there.
*Use freshly grated cheese rather than pre-shredded cheese, as it tends to melt better.
