Chicken Chipotle and Corn Tostadas


Charred corn and chicken have great summery flavors, but what really makes this tostada sing is the chipotle-lime cream sauce that holds everything on the shell. You can buy prepared tostada shells or make them yourself following the directions in the tip below.

Serves 4



1 chipotle in adobo sauce, minced, plus 2-1/2 Tbs. sauce (from one can of chipotles in adobo sauce)

1 Tbs. canola or vegetable oil; more as needed

2 tsp. finely grated lime zest

1/2 tsp. dried oregano

Kosher salt

1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast cutlets

3 ears corn, husked

1/2 cup sour cream

2 tsp. fresh lime juice

8 tostada shells

1/2 cup coarsely chopped cilantro

Lime wedges, for serving (optional)



Prepare a medium-high (400°F to 475°F) gas or charcoal grill fire.

In a medium bowl, combine the minced chipotle and 2 Tbs. of the adobo sauce with the oil, zest, oregano, and 1/2 tsp. salt.

Add the chicken and toss to coat.


Brush the corn lightly with oil and season generously with salt.

Grill the chicken and corn, turning the chicken once and the corn a few times, until the chicken is cooked through, 4 to 7 minutes, and the corn is charred in spots, about 12 minutes.


Transfer to a cutting board, let rest for a few minutes, and then cut the chicken into bite-size pieces and cut the corn off the cob.


Mix the sour cream with the lime juice, the remaining 1/2 Tbs. adobo sauce, and 1/4 tsp. salt.

Spread evenly onto the tostada shells.

Top with the corn, chicken, and cilantro.

Serve with the lime wedges on the side, if using.


Tip: Bake your own tostada shells: Arrange eight 6-inch corn tortillas on baking sheets in a single layer. Brush lightly on both sides with canola oil and sprinkle with kosher salt. Bake in a 400°F oven, flipping once, until golden and crisp on both sides, 9 to 12 minutes.
