How to make it

  • -In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, sauté onion and garlic in oil/butter until tender; stir in salsa, chili powder, cumin, cinnamon, and salt; fold in chicken/turkey; remove from heat and set aside.
  • -Working with one tortilla at a time, spoon 2 Tablespoons of beans down the center of each tortilla; top with a scant 1/2 cup of the chicken mixture.
  • -Fold the top and bottom of the tortillas toward the center, then roll up the sides.
  • -Secure with wooden toothpicks or pieces of spaghetti noodles if necessary.
  • -Place chimichangas in a 13" X 9" X 2" baking pan, seam side down.
  • -Spray all sides of the chimichangas with a light coating of cooking spray.
  • -Bake in a 450 degree oven for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp, turning after 10 minutes.
  • Serve with sour cream and guacamole. Goes well with Mexican or Spanish rice, or a nice crispy salad.
