Baked Chimichangas
      10/04/05 01:13 PM

Note: This is a Weight Watchers recipe. It does have beans in it, but I think the amount could be adjusted per tolerance & preference. It did not bother my IBS (nor did the salsa).

Weight Watchers' Baked Chimichangas

Points per chimi: 5
Servings: 8
Cooking time: 30 minutes
Level of difficulty: Moderate (but I thought it was really easy. )

2 servings cooking spray (5 one second sprays x 2)
1/2 lb. uncooked ground turkey breast
16 oz. can FAT FREE refried beans
8 oz salsa
4 1/2 oz. can mild diced green chilis
1 tsp. chili powder
3 TB thinly sliced scallions or 3 TB diced onion if tolerated
1 cup shredded reduced fat cheese (I used Lisanatti soy cheddar)
8 large burrito flour tortillas
1 cup salsa
1/2 cup sour cream alternative


Preheat oven to 350F. Coat a large skillet with cooking spray. Coat a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray.

Add turkey to skillet and cook over medium high heat until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Drain any excess liquid from pan and then add beans, 8 oz. of salsa, chili peppers, chili powder and scallions or onions. Cook until heated through, about 3 minutes. Stir in cheese.

Meanwhile, wrap tortillas in foil & warm in oven for about 10 minutes. (Basically, you want them soft & pliable.)

Assemble chimichangas by spooning about a half cup of turkey mixture onto each tortilla; fold in sides and roll up.

Place chimichangas in prepared baking dish. Bake uncovered until tortillas are crisp and brown, about 20 minutes. Serve topped with 2 TB of additional salsa and 1 TB sour cream alternative.
