Crunchy tostadas get toppings green and great in this easy-to-make dinner that brings some delightful heat. Green chili aioli adds a considerable kick, while green hatch chiles bring flavor to the sweet corn, tender chicken, and green onions. Topped with your standard issue Tex-Mex accouterments, cheese, these tostadas make spice nice and with crunch enough to spare. Tip: Tostadas are a delicious, but messy treat. For this recipe, they can easily be converted to tacos. Simply warm tortillas in oven for 1-2 minutes after completing steps, omitting the baking in step 1.

Recipe Steps

You Will Need

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Cooking Spray
  • 1 Baking Sheet
  • 1 Large Non-Stick Pan

Before You Cook

  • 1

    Bake the Tortillas

    Poke tortillas with a fork all over, 10 times for each tortilla. Place tortillas on prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 tsp. olive oil and massage oil into tortillas. Bake in hot oven until browned and crispy, 5-7 minutes. While tortillas bake, prepare ingredients.

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim and thinly slice green onions. In a mixing bowl, combine green chili aioli (to taste) and sour cream. Set aside. Pat chicken thighs dry, and season all over with a pinch of salt. Don't worry about trimming. Excess fat will render while cooking and add flavor. If using chicken breasts, pat dry and, on a separate cutting board, cut into 1" pieces. Season same amount.

    Start the Chicken Mixture

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken (thighs or breasts) and seasoning blend to hot pan and stir occasionally until chicken is lightly browned, 4-5 minutes. If using ground turkey, add a pinch of salt and follow same instructions, breaking into small pieces with a spoon, until no pink remains, 5-7 minutes.

  • 4

    Finish the Chicken Mixture

    Stir corn, hatch chiles (to taste), and green onions into pan. Cook until vegetables are tender and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 2-3 minutes. If using ground turkey, follow same instructions.

    Finish the Dish

    Spread green chili-sour cream mixture (to taste) evenly over tortillas. Top with chicken mixture and cheese. Bake again until cheese has melted, 5-6 minutes. Plate dish as pictured on front of card. Bon appétit!
