Chimichangas De Pavo

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Cynna

This Mexican inspired dish is my own creation and is a household favorite! We MUST have this dish at least once a week. Be warned, it's extremely tasty and addictive. We always serve this with Basic Mexican Rice Basic Mexican Rice. I suggest adding a tsp of your favorite hot sauce if you like your filling to pack a little more heat.

A really fun recipe to try out! I also messed with the spices & got a pretty taste meat mix; I added some chopped spinach & diced zucchini to add nutrition. I admit I chickened out with cooking this like a chimichanga; instead I cooked it on my stovetop like a folded-over quesadilla!! I topped the meat with reduced fat mozzarella & red onions. I served it with some salsa & fat free sour cream. It was yummy, but a tad try so I may try adding a little taco sauce into the meat mix. Thanks so much for sharing this!!
