Skinny Chicken Chimichangas

SKINNY Chicken Chimichangas

I adapted this from a WW recipe in an old cookbook. My husband in particular loves them!!  Hope you will enjoy them too! The best part is you don't have to feel guilty for eating them ;)

Ingredients: (serves 4)

4 burrito size tortillas
4 boneless chicken breasts
1 T chili powder, 2 tsp. Adobo seasoning, 1 tsp. cumin, 1 tsp. oregano, salt and pepper to taste
chopped green chilies (small can)
8 oz. can tomato sauce
1 Cup shredded red. fat cheese + 1/2 cup for topping

Saute the chicken and seasonings in a pan sprayed with cooking spray until cooked through.
Remove chicken and hand chop or use a food processor (much easier!!) until somewhat finely chopped.
Add chicken back to the pan and add a little more seasoning if needed
Add tomato sauce, cheese and green chilies
let boil for around 5 minutes or until the sauce thickens
Spoon around 1/2 cup of the chicken mix. into the tortillas and fold burrito style.
Place the rolled tortillas on a greased baking pan and then lightly spray them with cooking spray.
Bake in a preheated oven at  375 for  20 minutes or until lightly browned.
Sprinkle the  Chimichangas with the reserved 1/2 cup of cheese 
Serve with your favorite Mexican condiments (Salsa, guacamole, sour cream, cilantro... )
