Baked Cheesy Chicken Chimichangas

Usually chimichangas, like those ordered at a restaurant, are so unhealthy for you. They're stuffed with calories, and then on top of that friend and topped with even more stuffed. If you're looking for the chimichanga taste but not all of the calories, you should definitely try this. Putting it in the oven makes the tortilla crispy, but turns the inside to a cheesy goooeyness! My friend Amy tried this after I sent her the recipe and she also stuffed in vegetables and said it was delicious.

  •  8 oz. cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tbsp. Lowry's seasoning salt
  • 1/2 c. rinsed black beans
  • 1 lb. shredded cooked chicken (I used rotisserie)
  • 8 tortillas
  • Cooking spray
  • Sour cream
  • Salsa
  1. Turn oven on to 350 degrees
  2. Stir together cream cheese, 1 cup of cheddar cheese, black beans, and seasoning salt
  3. Fold in chicken
  4. Divide among the tortillas
  5. Tuck in sides, roll up, and place seam side down in sprayed baking dish
  6. Bake for 15 minutes
  7. Turn over and bake for another 15 minutes
  8. Top with the rest of the cheese, sour cream, and salsa
