Air Fryer Buffalo Chicken Tostadas

Buffalo chicken fans here is a fun and new idea to get your spicy fix!

I've long been a buffalo sauce fan, well before it became a hot trend. This spicy, tangy sauce used to be saved for just wings, but today we put it on anything!

Over the years I've made many buffalo dishes. Here are a few favorites.....

See? I told you!

Chicken, cheese and buffalo sauce mixed on a cutting board with a knife.

Now at our house we also love using our air fryer, so I figured I'd combine these two loves. Why not use this easy peasy appliance to make a crispy fun tostada?

I combined rotisserie chicken {any grilled or seasoned cooked chicken will do} with mozzarella and Parmesan cheese, plus a healthy drizzle of buffalo sauce {I love the Cookies brand} and ranch dressing. This mixture would be great topped on a pizza as well.

But in this case.....break out the corn tortillas!

Depending on how big your air fryer is you may be able to fit all four tostadas into the fryer at the same time, or you can do one at a time while serving the family.

Either way the key to getting a crispy tostada bottom is to spray both sides of the corn tortilla with cooking spray before topping with the ingredients. The oil allows the heat to crisp up the tortilla super quick.

These cook up quick {around 5-7 minutes} so your snack, lunch or dinner will be on the table fast!

Want to amp these up even more? I kept them fairly traditional, but anything can be added. Fresh veggies, different cheeses {blue cheese anyone?} or even shrimp swapped out instead of chicken. Make these your own!

Drizzle with more buffalo sauce and ranch dressing right before serving - it only makes them better. I like to make these for quick lunches when I'm working from home. I often buy rotisserie chicken at the store to use in various ways - and now I can add this one!

Share this with all your buffalo chicken friends - you know who they are - I promise they will thank you.
