what you need
  • 1/2 pound uncooked ground turkey breast
  • 16 oz fat-free canned refried beans
  • 1 3/4 cup salsa
  • 4 1/2 oz canned green chili peppers, mild, drained and diced
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 3 Tbsp. scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup shredded reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese
  • 8 large burrito-size wheat flour tortillas
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
make it
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat a large skillet with 2 sprays of cooking spray. Coat a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Add turkey to skillet and cook over medium-high heat until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Drain any excess liquid from pan and then add beans, 1 3/4 cups of salsa, chili peppers, chili powder and scallions. Cook until heated through, about 3 minutes; stir in cheese. Meanwhile, wrap tortillas in foil; warm in oven for 10 minutes.

Assemble Chimichangas by spooning about 1/2 cup of turkey mixture onto each tortilla; fold in sides and roll up. Place Chimichangas in prepared baking dish.

Bake uncovered until tortillas are crisp and browned, about 20 minutes. Serve each topped with 2 Tbsp. of salsa and 1 Tbsp. of sour cream.

Flavor Booster: Mexican and Central American food stores often sell epazote, a pungent herb with a taste similar to cilantro. Sprinkle 1 Tbsp. of chopped fresh epazote or cilantro over the finished dish.
