What you got here is a delish Chimichanga

Again, many thanks to Lisa for a delicious recipe with Weight Watcher Points attached to it. There are times in life where only a Chimichanga will do...and let me tell you this Chimichanga does and does and does.

Baked Turkey & Jack Cheese Chimichangas

I received this recipe from a friend who cannot recall where she found it - Possibly a recipe posted on weight watchers.com?! This recipe serves up to 8 and each chimichanga is 5 WW points

What you need:

  • ½ pound uncooked ground turkey (it adds a few points, but my fiancĂ© prefers 1pnd of turkey)
  • 16 oz fat-free canned refried beans
  • 8 oz salsa
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 3 tbsp scallions thinly sliced
  • 1 c. shredded reduced fat Monterey Jack cheese
  • Green chilies optional - to taste
  • 8 large burrito size wheat flour tortillas

What you do:

  1. Coat large skillet with cooking spray
  2. Coat 13x9x2 baking dish with spray
  3. Add turkey to skillet and cook – drain liquid and add beans, salsa, chili powder, and scallions and green chilies to taste. Cook until heated through. Stir in cheese.
  4. Warm tortillas in the oven in foil for 10 min
  5. Fill tortillas with ½ c filling. Fold and Roll.
  6. Bake 20 min at 350
  7. Serve with salsa and sour cream (count points for sour cream as extra)
