  • Method: Oven
  • Cuisine: Mexican


  • 8 corn tortillas or tostada shells
  • 3 medium tomatoes, diced
  • 4 medium avocados, diced
  • 3 tbsp red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 15 oz can low sodium black beans, drained  and rinsed
  • 3 cups shredded chicken (like rotisserie or chicken breast)
  • 1/2 cup feta or Cotija cheese, crumbled
  • Cooking spray (I use Misto)


  1. Tostada shells: Line a large baking sheet with a silicone mat and place tortillas in a single layer. Spray both sides of the tortillas with cooking spray and a sprinkle of salt. Bake at 400 degrees F for 6 minutes per side.
  2. Guacamole salsa: Mix tomato, avocado, red onion, cilantro, cumin, chili powder, salt and lime juice.
  3. Assemble tostadas: Top each shell with guacamole salsa, beans, chicken and cheese.


  • I like making my own tostada shells, but you can use pre-made.
  • You can substitute refried beans for black beans.
  • In this recipe, adjust the amount of salt in the guacamole salsa to taste. Add more or less depending on the salt content in the homemade chicken, canned beans or store-bought tostada shells.
