    Karen in MA (formerly OC)'s Note:

    from Sam the Cooking Guy's Discovery Health Channel's "Just Cook This" show. "Part chimichanga (the crunchy outside) and part burrito (the inside) this is made totally simple by using a rotisserie chicken. But the crunchiness is from baking, not frying.

    1. 1
      Heat oven to 350 degrees F. In a non-stick pan, combine chicken, salsa sauce and green chiles, mix until just heated through. Heat tortillas in microwave about 30 seconds to make them pliable.
    2. 2
      Spoon 1/4 of the chicken mixture on each tortilla and roll up—sides in first then over the top to keep everything inches Place on a greased baking sheet and very lightly rub top of burrito with vegetable oil.
    3. 3
      Bake until just starting to get golden brown,15-20 minutes. While they cook, warm the enchilada sauce.
    4. 4
      Spoon warm enchilada sauce on a plate, place baked chimichito on top, add a spoonful of sour cream and sprinkle with cheese and cilantro.
