My son and I decided to start watching our weight. I re-joined Weight Watchers almost 2 weeks ago. Of course, getting sick put a damper on the dieting, but I've been doing pretty well. I lost 3.2 pounds my first week! I still plan on cooking, just not so much sweet stuff.
I found this recipe a couple years ago and never made it. I really didn't have high hopes on it being good, but boy was I wrong! Jimmy and I loved it! It was delicious! It's only 5 points for each one, too.
1/2 lb uncooked ground turkey breast
16 oz fat free canned refried beans
1 3/4 cups salsa
1 tsp chili powder
4.5 oz canned green chilis, diced and drained
1 cup shredded reduced-fat Monterary Jack cheese
8 large burrito size wheat flour tortillas
1 cup salsa
(also called for sour cream and scallions, but I skipped)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat large skillet with cooking spray. Coat a 13x9x2 inch baking dish with cooking spray.
Add turkey to skillet and cook over medium-high heat until lightly browned. Drain any excess liquid from pan and then add beans, 1 3/4 cups salsa, chili peppers, chili powder and scallions (3 T). Cook until heated through, about 3 minutes; stir in cheese.
Meanwhile, wrap tortillas in foil; warm in oven for 10 minutes.
Assemble chimichangas by spooning about 1/2 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 browned, about 20 minutes. Serve each topped with 2 T of salsa and 1 T of sour cream.
