9 PointsPlus Value
A staple around my house. They freeze well too and make a great lunch. I usually make 10 at a time and freeze them in individual baggies. Very easy to make too! Thanks for sharing!
I'm not a stickler on the points, so I made a few changes. I used a little less salsa, omitted the chili peppers and used black beans (drained) instead of refried beans. We really enjoyed them and I will make them again. Thanks for posting!
Changed up a few things so it could have an impact on the calories. I did not use burrito tortillas I used regular. I did not use salsa I used regular tomatoes that I diced. I doubled the meat. I used 1/4 cup of green enchilada sauce and instead of doubling the chili powder I did an additional amount of cumin. I used 1/2 the amount of cheese and instead of re-fried beans I used seasoned black beans (drained). I made extras so I could freeze and use for lunches. I came out with 20 chimichangas. Thank you for the recipe.
These have a lot of sodium...but they taste pretty good...maybe using less salsa is a good idea...
Just finished these for the first time and must say thank you for posting. Followed the recipe pretty close, just added more turkey (1 lb). The hubs commented several times on how tasty dinner was.
My first try at chimichangas. Man were these GOOD! I would have never known this was a "diet" recipe!
I tried this recipe several years ago when I was on Weight Watchers. It has easily become one of our FAVORITES, not only at home, but also when I travel with my tennis team. In fact, now my teammates have come to expect me to make them. My son says the chimichangas are even better warmed up! I usually double the amount of meat & salsa used.
This is one of our favorite weight watchers recipes. The only problem is limiting yourself to just one!
Excellent recipe. I'm not on weight watchers but I'm always watching calories and looking for healthy options and this one is definitely a crowd pleaser. I can make this for friends or my boyfriend who are anti-healthy food and they won't even notice!
