Weeknight Ground Chicken Tostadas Recipe

Easy, gluten free, and bursting with flavor, these tostadas are sure to spice up your weeknight dinners!

File this under another lazy girl recipe you’ll come back to again and again. Keep it gluten and grain free with almond flower tortillas and a flour-free taco seasoning like this kicking one from Siete Foods.

We’ve all heard of taco Tuesday, but have you tried tostada Tuesday? Juicy, citrusy, and a little bit spicy, these deliciously simple tostadas put a fun and fresh spin on a Mexican classic. Coming together in just minutes, this vibrant dish can easily be made both gluten and grain free, making it the perfect meal to whip up when you’re running short on time but don’t want to compromise on flavor.

For a full tostada Tuesday spread, I like to make my Vegan Nacho Cheese Recipe from Guy’s Grocery Games and Berry Basil Margaritas for Tyler and me, if I’m feeling a little extra spicy.
