Turkey and Cheese Chimichangas (Ww)

"We had these last night with recipe#246807 for a wonderful simple supper. If following the WW flex plan these are 5 points each. I used medium-hot salsa (Garcia's kitchen) for the turkey mixture and topped with hot salsa (Los Cuates). Recipe source: WW web site."

    Really great! Tons of flavor, and leftovers were terrific. These are more burritos than chimichangas though. I also froze a few for future emergency lunches. If freezing, thaw in fridge overnight before microwaving. I did use full-fat cheese because I don't like the texture of low-fat.

    This was really good! My family liked it, too. I served it with FF refried beans on the side, chips and salad. The leftovers were great heated up for lunch. Thank you!

    This was awesome!! I made a few changes...but not big ones. I used leftover shredded turkey breast,vegetarian refried beans and like MamaJ I reduced the salsa to 1 cup. They were perfect and my family couldn't even tell that it was a WW meal. I used medium salsa in the filling and jalapeno salsa on top. I will be making these again...very easy! Thanks for posting Ellie!! :)

    Delicious, quick and easy....what's not to like?! I followed this recipe to the letter and loved the result. The only thing I might change about it is to add only 1 cup of salsa to start and then add the rest based on the consistency of the filling. I found the filling just a bit runny, but delicious none the less. I lightly sprayed the chimichangas with olive oil spray to help them crisp in the oven. This is a great week night meal that doesn't taste like diet food. Thanks for posting ellie!


<p>I love cooking and trying different foods, but my favorite cookbooks are now Weight Watchers or low fat/low cal cookbooks as I tend to try and make low fat/low cal recipes. I lost over 90 pounds on Weight Watchers and have maintained for over a year now -- so my cooking/eating habits have changed drastically following my weight loss and to keep it off!</p>
