INGREDIENTS
8 tostada shells or 8 corn tortillas, brushed lightly with olive oil and baked for 3-5 minutes per side, until crispy
3 cups cooked and shredded chicken
1 1/2 cups of your favorite barbecue sauce, divided
2 cups shredded cheese (Mary uses mozzarella in the cookbook, but I have also used cheddar, Monterey Jack, or a blend)
3 green onions, very thinly sliced (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F. Lay out the tostada shells (or baked tortillas) on two rimmed baking sheets.
  • Combine the chicken and 1 cup of the barbecue sauce in a small bowl, and stir to coat.
  • Divide the chicken between the tostada shells and top with the cheese (about ¼ cup on each).
  • Bake for 6 to 8 minutes, just until the cheese is melted.
  • Remove from the oven and drizzle with the remaining ½ cup barbecue sauce. Sprinkle with green onions, if desired.
