Chicken Fajita Tostada

My friend Randi, who actually I met not to long ago seems to have the same desire to cook as I do (tons of fun!) she told me about this recipe and it sounded so easy and so good. It was, easy and good that is. My picture probably would have looked better if it had a fresh pico-de-gallo on top, but because my husband prefers blended salsa it took away from the overall look. I know, I must love him :)

Chicken Fajita Tostada

2 medium onions, thinly sliced
2 bell peppers (ribs and seeds removed), thinly sliced
1 box (10 ounces) frozen corn kernels
1 cup prepared fresh salsa
2 tablespoons olive oil
Coarse salt and ground pepper
2 cups shredded cooked chicken breast
4 corn tortillas (6-inch)
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar
Cilantro-Lime Rice, for serving (optional)

1.Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil. On foil, combine onions, bell peppers, corn, 1/4 cup salsa, and 1 tablespoon oil; season with salt and pepper.
2.Roast, tossing occasionally, until vegetables are tender and lightly browned, 15 to 20 minutes. Add chicken, stir to combine, and continue to roast until warmed through, 5 minutes more. Transfer chicken and vegetable mixture to a serving bowl, discarding foil (reserve sheet).
3.Arrange tortillas on sheet. Dividing evenly, brush with remaining tablespoon oil; top with cheese. Bake until edges are golden and cheese is melted, 5 to 8 minutes.
4.Dividing evenly, top tortillas with chicken-vegetable mixture and remaining 3/4 cup salsa. Serve with cilantro-lime rice, if desired.

  1. This looks yummy. I should have looked here first, before attempting my (lame) dinner. Yes, yours is way better than what we had, but it's done. Some meals are just that way: you eat to survive. Nothing special.
