I saw these over at Pinterest and Just had to blog it. I love Chimichangas, but cant eat fried food, so when i saw baked I knew I would make these.


1 small onion, diced
1 cup salsa
3/4 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. Chili Powder
1 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1 sm can green chilis, chopped (optional)
2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken breasts ( or beef)
6 (8-10") flour tortillas
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese ( or Mexican mix)


In large saucepan, saute onion for 5 mins.Then add Salsa, cumin, chili powder, oregano to pan and shredded chicken. Mix together and saute for 3 mins.
Let cool.
Spoon 1/3 cup mixture below center of each tortilla; top with 2 tablespoons cheese.
Fold in 2 sides of tortillas to enclose filling. Fold over top and bottom edges of tortillas, making rectangles. Secure with wooden picks.

Place, folded side down, on greased baking sheets. Coat chimichangas with cooking spray.
Bake at 425° for 8 minutes; turn and bake 5 more minutes.

Remove picks; Toppings: guacamole, sour cream, shredded lettuce, diced tomato
