Honey & Lime Chicken Tostadas are a quick and easy dinner that everyone will love!  This recipe first appeared on Somewhat Simple, and since then we make these at least once a week.  They are fresh and delicious, and perfect for a busy weeknight!

Tostadas 1
I was going to make tacos for an easy weeknight dinner, and halfway through the process I realized I was out of flour tortillas. I dug around my fridge a little more and found corn tortillas, so tostadas it was! We loved how these turned out. I’m a sucker for any chicken that has honey and lime, so I added them & threw in a couple of spices and bam! Honey and Lime Chicken Tostadas- an easy, quick dinner.

Honey and Lime Chicken Tostadas

Ingredients (for the chicken):

  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • juice of 1/2 – 1 lime
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 heaping cups of cooked and shredded chicken

Additional Ingredients:

  • 6 corn tortillas
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 tsp chipotle chili powder
  • 1 can refried beans, warmed
  • lettuce, shredded
  • cheese, shredded
  • tomatoes, diced
  • red onion, diced
  • bell pepper, diced
  • avocado, sliced


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Add all ingredients for chicken in a medium bowl and let marinate while you prep everything else.
  3. Add the chipotle chili powder to the sour cream and thoroughly combine. Set aside.
  4. Place tortillas on a baking sheet and place in oven for 3-5 minutes. You want them crispy…if they are rubbery they will be harder to eat.
  5. Spread tortillas with refried beans (or if you have a few more minutes, definitely make Spicy Refried Beans). If desired, top with some shredded cheese and place under a broiler for about 30 seconds.
  6. Layer each tortilla with chicken, lettuce, tomatoes, bell pepper, cheese, avocado and a dollop of chipotle sour cream.
  7. Serve immediately and enjoy!
