Chicken and Cheese Tostadas

Prep: 20 min | Yield: 6 serving


  • 6 Taco Bell® Home Originals® Flour Tortillas
  • 1 (1 1/4 ounce) package Taco Bell® Home Originals® Taco Seasoning Mix, divided
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2 inch pieces*
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 large tomatoes, chopped, divided
  • 2 cups Kraft Free Shredded Non-Fat Cheddar Cheese, divided
  • 6 tablespoons Breakstone's Reduced Fat or Knudsen Light Sour Cream
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Place tortillas in single layer on large baking sheet; spray with cooking spray. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon seasoning mix.
  3. Bake for 7 to 8 minutes or until tortillas are crisp and golden brown.
  4. Meanwhile, combine chicken, remaining seasoning mix and water in large skillet. Bring to boil on medium-high heat; simmer on medium-low for 5 minutes or until chicken is done, stirring occasionally.
  5. Add 1 1/2 cups tomatoes; cook until heated through, stirring occasionally.
  6. Remove from heat; stir in 1 1/2 cups cheese.
  7. Spoon chicken mixture onto tortillas; top with remaining ingredients.


* How to Easily Cut Chicken: Cutting boneless skinless chicken breasts into pieces can be a slippery task. Make it safer and prevent the knife from slipping by cutting the chicken while it is partially frozen. The firmer chicken is much easier to cut and handle.
