I've made these several times. I add a can of sliced olives and a can of diced chilies to the chicken at the same time the onions are added. I didn't find the need to use the butter, which cuts down on fats. Thanks for posting!
My whole family loved this recipe! We used reduced-fat monterey jack cheese and I mixed the cheese into the chicken, salsa mixture before filling the tortillas.
I was jsut going to add this recipe but I did a search and here it is!!!! I love these chimichangas they are not fried like most and are still crunchy and oh so good! We top with shredded lettuce, tomatoes and sour cream.
New family favorite! This is super fast, easy and pretty healthy too! I used taco seasoning that had cumin and oregano in it, rather then the individual seasonings. I cooked my chicken in the crockpot. I also used a chunkier picante sauce. So there really was no need for me to simmer the meat/sauce mix, because the sauce soaked into the shredded chicken. I brushed olive oil on the bottom of the pan folded the packets up then lightly brushed each packet with olive oil intead of butter. The whole family gave this 5 stars and I will be making this again for sure. I froze 2 of them and I will update this later to tell how well that worked. Thanks so much for a new family favorite! Also I forgot to pick up sour cream at the store, and put a little bit of light ranch on top along with extra picante sauce... MMM MMM Good! Thanks again! ETA: Freezing works great! Pop it in the microwave for 1-2 minutes. This is great for my husband to take to work. It's much healthier then anything you can buy pre-packaged in the store. Thanks so much! Made for Fall PAC 2008
Hubby & I thought this was good. I liked that they were baked & not fried. I did not simmer all the ingredients together because even when I added extra picante, the mixture still was too thick to simmer. Also, I did not plan well enough and only ended up with 2 cups chopped chicken, and it really did make the difference because I only got 7 chimi's. Next time I will be sure to have the full amount. I made the full recipe and froze the extras for another time. Thanks so much for posting this.
This was very simple and tasty receipe. I changed it up and topped the baked goodness with green verde enchilada sauce.
This was a Huge Success. It was super easy and every one loved it (From 2 - 28). My husband covered his with cheese and let it melt and my kids ate the stuffing that fell out with some nacho chips. Thank you for posting such a yummy quick recipe.
This rivals my favorite chimichangitas at a mexican restaurant we love.
