Salsa Chicken and Ranch Florentine Tostadas

Tags: , , , ,

Dinner

I am such a sucker for Mexican Food.  Maybe it’s because I grew up in AZ, I don’t know but we eat it…..often in my house.  I have to share with you a new product by Tortilla Land that is sold at CA and AZ Costco locations.  Their uncooked corn tortillas taste completely homemade and are cooked in a hot skillet in 60 seconds!  How cool is that?!  I topped my tortillas with shredded chicken breast mixed with salsa, ranch seasoning, cumin, garlic and sauteed spinach.  That’s the Florentine part of the recipe, sounds fancy right?  I love adding chopped spinach to my dinner recipes for the kids, half the time they’ve got no idea they are eating it :)

These tortillas are $5.99 for 48 tortillas, they have no preservatives, no cholesterol, no trans fats and are gluten free.  Tortilla Land’s  flour tortilla are available at retailers nationwide.  Check HERE to find products in your area.

Make sure to check out Tortilla Land on Facebook too!

Here is your line up of ingredients :)

Officially in LOVE with these tortillas :)

Salsa Chicken and Ranch Florentine Tostadas

2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

3 Cups chopped fresh spinach leaves

2 Cups cooked shredded chicken breast

2 Tablespoons fresh minced garlic

1 Tablespoon ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4-1/2  teaspoon dry Ranch Seasoning

1/2 Cup prepared salsa of choice

6 Tortilla Land Corn Tortillas

1.  Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium heat.  Saute spinach until leaves wilt.  Stir in chicken, garlic, cumin, salt, ranch seasoning and salsa.  Cook for 5 minutes or until chicken is heated through.

2.  Heat small skillet over medium heat.  When hot add tortilla.  Cook for 30 seconds then flip and cook second side for another 30 seconds.  When lightly browned on both sides remove.  Cook remaining tortillas.

3.  Top tortillas with chicken mixture.  Serve with salsa if desired.

6 servings

    I love that we have the same flour/sugar containers :) So cute! And love that you use Herdez! That is definitely our salsa of choice too! Fell in love with it in AZ and now scour the stores for it in SC. This dish looks delicious and relatively dairy free that I could alter it to make it for my family–thank you!

    Costco also have Roti-land wheat tortillas that work perfectly with Indian food! They are sooo good with curries or as wraps!

    I love these tortillas! They sell them at Costco here in TEXAS!! I made a really easy fish taco with them the other night and my kids liked the “chicken”. I am going to have to try your recipe!! Love your blog, keep the recipes coming!

    Mrs Horn says:

    Do you have a suggestion of a substitute for the tortillas that you suggest here? The recipe looks awesome but, I am not a member of a Costco, and couldnt find any product anywhere near me. thanks so much!

      Jenny says:

      I would use a corn tortilla you and your family enjoy. I’ve used Mission and Guerillo in the past. Hope you enjoy!

      • Jay says:

        I buy their flour tortillas online at mexgrocer.com. They come in 44 to a pack and last 30 days in the fridge. I freeze them and thaw as needed. Will never buy store brand again. While you’re there buy a tortilla warmer too. It keeps them soft and warm while you cook.

    Celeste says:

    Yum! Love Mexican food and these look so easy and delicious! I do the same thing…I’m always sneaking in spinach. My family has no idea and they eat it up!

  30. 30

    Great idea for a quick meal! I will have to ask my in-laws to bring some of these tortillas when they come to visit from California.

  31. 31

    I love the idea of shredding the chicken…much easier to eat!

    Jay says:

    You can find the 44 uncooked flour tortillas at mexgrocer.com. I’ve been buying them for years and use a tortilla warmer to keep them soft as I cook. They freeze great and take out as needed.

    I made these tonight for dinner and they were a hit! So simple, so delicious, so easy. I love that these weren’t loaded down with a ton of toppings… no need for the extra calories and saves money ;). And the secret ingredient, ranch dressing mix was a great addition.

    Julie says:

    Great dish! Super easy and my husband and I enjoyed it very much. The kids did not want to try it, but I will make this very easy and delicious dish again. Served with some black beans and shredded cheese on top.
