  • Silicone baking mat
  • Glass bowls
  • Baking sheet


  • 8 corn tortillas or tostada shells
  • 3 medium tomatoes diced
  • 4 medium avocados diced
  • 3 tbsp red onion finely chopped
  • ¼ cup cilantro finely chopped
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • ¾ 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
  • ½ cups feta or Cotija cheese crumbled
  • Cooking spray I use Misto


Bake 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

Make guacamole salsa:

  • Mix tomato, avocado, red onion, cilantro, cumin, chili powder, salt and lime juice.

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.
