Baked Chicken Chimichangas

I adapted this recipe from an old Cooking Light recipe. I love it but made a few changes. It's my go-to recipe. It's a great recipe for using up left over chicken. My whole family will eat it, too!

Total Time: About 10-15 minutes assembling. 10 minutes to bake.

Yield: 6 servings

Source: Cooking Light magazine

Ingredients:

*The original recipe calls for queso fresco, but I rarely have that on hand.

Steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees F.
  2. Combine first 7 ingredients in a large bowl.
  3. Spread 1/4 cup beans down center of tortilla. Top with 3/4 cup chicken mixture. Roll up like a burrito. Place rolls seam down on a large baking sheet coated with cooking spray or olive oil.

    The original recipe says to coat the chimichangas with cooking spray. I prefer to use my pastry brush and brush some olive oil all over the tortilla. But, either way works!
  4. Bake at 500 degrees F for 7 minutes, or until brown and crispy.
  5. Serve with salsa verde and sour cream, or however you like it!

I copied this recipe so I can make it for my family. Mexican food is one of our favorites. I believe this will make a good freezer meal also.
