I have become a huge fan of these BBQ Chicken Tostadas! Not only are they delicious, but they're the perfect meal to make on busy weeknights. All you need are 5 simple ingredients and you've got a dinner that's bursting with flavor and quick to get on the table.

These tostadas are piled high with chicken, cheese, bbq sauce and green onions. The best part about this recipe is that is very easy to customize it to your tastes. Don't have chicken? Try pulled pork or roasted cauliflower instead! Want to add extra veggies? Go for it! There are no strict rules when it comes to tostadas!

Give them a try and let us know how they turn out!

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Shred your cooked chicken (you can use rotisserie chicken from the grocery store or cook your own). Add your BBQ sauce to your shredded chicken and mix so that it's all evenly coated. Set aside.

Lay out the tostada shells on two baking sheets.

Add your shredded chicken to the top of each tostada and top with cheese.

Bake for 6-8 minutes, or until the cheese is all melted.

Remove from oven and drizzle with more BBQ sauce and sprinkle sliced green onions over top. You could also garnish with fresh cilantro, if desired.
