I am a creature of habit, and that definitely includes the meals I make every week. There’s bound to be a burger night, a roasted chicken & veggie night, and a taco night because they are my easy go-tos that I don’t have to think about. But how many times can I cycle through that menu before I need a little something to spice up my life?
I recently have been making Tostadas a part of my weekly rotation because they are a fun twist on tacos. Still just as easy, but a little more fun! I decided to share the super-easy Tostadas I made this week on here just in case you need some inspiration for a new healthy easy meal!
Green Chile Chicken Tostadas
For the crockpot chicken-
- 1- 1 & 1/2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast
- 1 tbsp cumin
- 1 tbsp chili powder
- 1 7-oz can diced green chiles
- 1/3 cup green chile salsa / salsa verde
For the tostada tortillas-

For the mango salsa–
- 1 mango, diced
- 1/2 medium-sized red onion, diced (or about 1/4 cup diced red onion)
- 3 tbsp jarred jalapenos, diced
- Large handful cilantro, minced
Place the chicken in the bottom of a crockpot. Sprinkle with cumin, chili powder, and plenty of salt & pepper, and mix to combine. Pour in the canned chiles and green salsa on top. Cook on low for 4-6 hours or on high for 3-5 hours, and shred the with two forks before serving.
While chicken cooks, make the Tostadas tortillas.
Make the salsa by making sure all the salsa ingredients are finely diced/chopped. Mix ingredients together in a small bowl. Place in fridge until ready to serve.
To serve- Grab a crispy tostada tortilla, place chicken on top. Immediately put a sprinkle of shredded cheese on top of chicken, then mango salsa, then some shredded lettuce or spinach. Enjoy!
