Ww Skinny Chimichangas


This is out of my Weight Watchers cookbook called "Take-Out Tonight!" This is an excellent low fat chimchangas recipe. It is baked, instead of deep-fried. The burrito comes out crispy with a moist and flavorful filling. This has 4 points per serving. You can top these chimichangas with your favorite salsa and, for an extra 1 point per serving, 2 tablespoons fat-free sour cream.
Ingredients
  • 1⁄2 lb ground turkey breast
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1⁄2 tsp ground cumin
  • 8 oz can tomato sauce
  • 2 tbsp mild green chili pepper, chopped
  • 1⁄3 cup reduced-fat cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 8 in fat-free flour tortillas
Directions

  1.     Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2.     Spray a nonstick baking sheet with nonstick spray; set aside.
  3.     Spray a medium nonstick skillet with nonstick spray; set over medium-high heat.
  4.     Add the turkey, onion, garlic, chili powder, oregano, and cumin.
  5.     Cook, breaking up the turkey with a wooden spoon until browned, about 6 miuntes.
  6.     Stir in the tomato sauce and the chiles; bring to a boil.
  7.     Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, until the flavors are blended and the mixture thickens, slightly, about 5 minutes.
  8.     Remove from the heat and stir in the cheddar cheese.
  9.     Meanwhile, wrap the tortillas in foil and place in the oven to warm for 10 minutes.
  10.     Spoon about 1/2 cup of the filling into the center of each tortilla.
  11.     Fold in the sides, then roll to enclose the filling.
  12.     Place the chimichangas, seam-side down, on the baking sheet.
  13.     Lightly spray the tops of the tortillas with nonstick spray.
  14.     Bake until golden and crisp, about 20 miuntes.
  15.     Do not turn.
