Barbecue Chicken Tostadas

Barbecue Chicken Tostadas

It’s typical for me to throw together some ingredients on hand to create a meal in a pinch.  That’s why I call my kitchen “The Makeshift Kitchen.”  John was coming home one night from work, and the kiddos and I had already eaten leftovers of the same meal John had taken for lunch.  When I realized he wouldn’t want to eat the same thing for dinner (duh!), I came up with this quick meal.  I can’t wait to make this again for me and the kids too!

Everything was in the fridge, so it was really easy and fast.  I had roasted chicken thawed from the freezer, leftover homemade corn tortillas, shredded cheese and barbecue sauce.  Read here for more about roasting chicken to keep in the freezer.


Start by spreading the tortilla with the barbecue sauce.


Add some chicken.


Top it with some cheese.


Place them in a skillet on medium heat.


Cover them to help melt the cheese on top.


Melted cheese – yum!  The tortillas should be a little crispy.


Top with green onions and drizzle with ranch dressing.
