Chimichangas (My Take on Ww Recipe)

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 25 mins

While the WW recipe was good, I wanted to change it just a bit to suite my own preferences. Here's what I came up with.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.
  3. Spray a skillet with nonstick spray; set over medium-high heat.
  4. Add the turkey, onion, garlic, chili powder, oregano, and cumin and cook until the turkey is done.
  5. Add the tomato sauce and the chiles; bring to a boil.
  6. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, until the flavors are blended and the mixture thickens, 5 minutes or so.
  7. Remove from the heat and stir in 1/2 the cheddar cheese.
  8. Wrap the tortillas in foil and place in the oven to warm for 10 minutes.
  9. Spoon about 1/2 cup of the filling into the center of each tortilla.
  10. Fold in the sides, then roll to enclose the filling.
  11. Place the chimichangas, seam-side down, on the baking sheet.
  12. Sprinkle the other 1/2 of the cheese on top.
  13. Bake until golden, 15 minutes or so. Enjoy!

These were excellant, made them for PAC fall 2008, supper tonight. Delicious and just the right amount of heat. I used whole wheat tortillas and ground lean turkey meat, didn't have any chilies in so used a jalepeno pepper to replace them, seemed to work fine. Loved the spices and herbs, very tastey. Also used light cheddar cheese because that was what I have in.Forgot to put the no fat sour cream out 'til the last minute, so it dosen't show in the photos. Enjoyed our supper very much, seved with a simple lettuce/tomamto/onion salad. Thanks for posting , I will make them again.

This is almost like the chimichanga recipe I use!! I use my homemade enchilada sauce instead of tomato sauce, and lean ground turkey or shredded chicken. I still use the addtional seasonings, though-and add some hot sauce for a kick. I use reduced fat mexican cheese & don't put any on top to save more calories. This is a fabulous variation & I totally recommend it to anyone!
