  • vegetable oil for frying

  • 10 corn tortillas

  • 1 (10 ounce) can chunk chicken, drained and flaked

  • ½ cup mayonnaise

  • 2 ½ tablespoons canned jalapeno pepper slices, undrained

  • 1 tablespoon pickled jalapeno pepper juice

  • salt and pepper to taste


  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.
