Chicken & Cheese Tostadas

    30 minutes

    Cheddar and Swiss-style cheeses – as well as the Italian grating cheeses – are potent flavourings, even in modest amounts, so are especially good for cooking. They offer quality protein and – along with the melting cheeses like mozzarella – are rich in calcium.

    1. Heat the oil in a large nonstick frying pan over moderate heat. Add the spring onions and garlic and cook gently for 2 minutes or until the spring onions are tender. Add the chicken and cook for 5 minutes or until just cooked through. Transfer to a large bowl. Add the corn, green chillies, coriander, jalapeño chilli and lime juice, tossing to combine.
    2. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 200°C. Place the tortillas on a baking tray and heat for 2 minutes.
    3. Sprinkle half the cheese over the tortillas. Top with the chicken mixture and the remaining cheese. Bake for 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbling.

    One of the best tostadas I've ever tasted! This recipe would be equally as good with carne asada.  -  29 May 2014
