Chicken Tostada Salad Recipe

If I don't have any tostada shells on hand for this speedy salad, I just heat taco shells, break them in half and lay them flat on the plates. It works just as well. Great Southwest flavor! —Edie DeSpain, Logan, Utah

"I'm a little confused by the previous ratings. Some of the comments include complaints about ingredients that aren't even in the recipe. As for the ranch dressing, once you combine it with the taco sauce ( I used mild) it was good. My whole family enjoyed it and I thought it was a great weeknight meal since I didn't have to cook anything except the shells."

"Ranch dressing? I don't think so! I thinned down the dour cream with two tablespoons of buttermilk and seasoned it with half a teaspoon cumin. Eliminated the hot sause and used a quarter cup of chunky salsa. I uesed them as a topping after the chicken then sprinkled with cheese. Otherwise, it's a really good recipe!"

"The ranch dressing did not interest me much. I made my own dressing combining lite sour cream and salsa to top this recipe."

"Not exactly sure what to say about this one. The kids love it, I don't. I'll be making it for them many more times but I'll make myself something else."
