I just found this on another post and I am making it for dinner tonight.

 

Baked Chimichangas

8 ounces ground 90% lean turkey or beef

1/2 cup chopped onion

1/2 teaspoon minced garlic

1 cup chunky salsa

1 teaspoon chili seasoning

8 (6-inch) flour tortillas

1/4 cup no-fat sour cream

 

Preheat oven to 475° F. Spray a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with olive oil-flavored cooking spray.

In a large skillet sprayed with olive oil-flavored cooking spray, brown meat and onion.

Stir in garlic, 1/2 cup salsa, and Jo's chili seasoning. Lower heat and simmer for 5 minutes.

Spoon 1/4 cup meat mixture into center of each tortilla.

Lightly spray tops with butter-flavored cooking spray. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes or until golden brown.

For each serving, place a chimichanga on a serving plate, spoon 2 tablespoons salsa and 1 tablespoon sour cream over top.

 

Serves 4 (2 each). Serving size (2 chimichangas)

This came with the recipe: Per serving: 276 Cal, 8g Fat, 2g Fiber Healthy Exchanges: 2 Bread, 1 1/2 Protein, 3/4 Vegetable, 15 Opt. Cal. Diabetic: 2 Starch, 1 1/2 Meat, 1 Vegetable

WW Points: 6 pt.

I made the Chimichangas tonight for supper. I used whole wheat tortillas and fixed them just as the recipe said. They were great! I loved how they crisped up in the over! I thought about letting some ff cheese melt over top, but didn't. I think that would be good. It was still 6 points and I topped it with lettuce too. It was quite filling! I actually made two extra and will try taking them to work for lunch--I'll see if they reheat okay. Probably won't have the crispness though.
