Baked Chicken Chimi's

3 6 oz chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
1 can (16 oz) refried beans (I used fat free)
1 c. salsa
1 can (4 oz) diced green chiles, drained
1 t. chili powder
¼ c. green onion, sliced (I didn't have a green onion, so I used dried onion from my pantry)
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese (recipe calls for low fat cheese)
8 (8") flour tortillas (recipe calls for fat free tortillas)

Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 9"x13" baking dish with Pam; set aside.

Spray a large skillet with Pam.

Cook chicken and green onions in skillet until chicken is warmed.

Add chili powder, salsa, beans and green chiles. Cook until heated through. Mix in cheese and remove from heat.

Warm tortillas, 2 at a time, in the microwave to soften.

Place ½ c. chicken mixture down center of each tortilla; fold in the sides and roll up.

Place chimichangas into prepared baking dish.

Spray the tops of each chimichanga lightly with Pam.

Bake uncovered 20-25 minutes or until tortillas are crisp and brown.

Serve with additional salsa, sour cream or other toppings.

This is a recipe I got from "Shoutin' from the Rooftops" webstie. Its a great website if you are on weight watchers.

This recipe is DELICIOUS! Try it! ;)
