Have you had tostadas before? They're a bit like an open faced quesadilla, but more salady. You'll need some low carb salsa – I recommend Green Mountain Gringo – look for salsa with 2g or less carbs per serving of two tablespoons. And possibly more important is the tortilla; there are lots available these days, so check out my low carb tortilla comparison and review.

You'll also need some cooked chicken – any kind will do including rotisserie chicken. Or it's a great way of using up any leftovers of Mexican shredded chicken! You could also use other timesavers like pre-shredded lettuce and/or cheese, and use guacamole instead of diced avocado!

How to Make Low Carb Chicken Tostadas

Place the low carb tortillas on a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat or kitchen foil. One tortilla per person is usually enough. I'm currently using Mission Carb Balance Flour Tortillas right now – 4g net carbs per tortilla. Place them under a preheated broiler until crispy but not burnt.

Turn them over and cook until they start to darken at the edges. Add the chicken to the tortillas, and divide some shredded cheese over the top (I use a Mexican blend).

Return to the broiler until the cheese has melted. Next, add some low carb salsa – choose mild, medium, or hot!

At this point you'll probably want to transfer the tostadas to serving plates.  Load everything else onto the tostadas: shredded lettuce, diced avocado, sour cream, sliced jalapeños (either pickled or fresh). You'll hardly be able to see the chicken by this point! Finish with a grind of black pepper and serve immediately.

This looks like a perfect quick lunch to me. I'd definitely add some jalapenos to spice things up, they make everything taste better!
