“This easy chicken salad includes diced jalapenos, which make it spicy and delicious. You can eat it with crackers, but it tastes much better with tostadas.”

Original recipe yields 6 servings

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. One at a time, slip a tortilla into the hot oil. If the tortilla starts to puff up, press it down with a fork. When crisp and brown, remove to paper towels. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
  2. Place the chicken in a bowl, and separate with a fork. Stir in the mayonnaise. Dice the jalapenos (reserving the liquid), and stir them into chicken salad. Pour in 1 tablespoon jalapeno juice, season with salt and pepper, and stir well. To serve, spread the chicken salad on the tostadas.

This stuff *is* very good. I've been making this for several years, although I add a can of mixed vegetables to it. We eat it with tortilla chips. Very good!

This was a fun and easy lunch to send with my teenage daughter. I used Morningstar chicken strips, but otherwise followed the recipe. For simplicity, I used Tostitos Scoops instead of making tortillas myself. That way it was perfect to take for lunch.

Oh my delicious! How easy, quick and tasty! I used as a sandwich filling instead of as a salad! As others have mentioned, reduced the mayo to about1 1/2 Tbsp and it was plenty. Awesome! Thanks for a great recipe.
