Baked Chicken Chimichangas

I love mexican food!! I swear we spend so much money at Pancheros because I all of a sudden am craving a burrito and must have it now.  I found this recipe  and knew I had to try it.

Ingredients:

  • 4 large flour tortillas (I would use more next time and then they would roll closed better)
  • ½ cup refried beans (I didn’t measure just spooned some on, which is probably why mine were so full)
  • 1 cup guacamole (I didn’t measure this either, but honestly they were so much better full!!)
  • 2 cups shredded chicken (see recipe below for the easy slow cooker chicken I used!)
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican style cheese (I just used cheddar because that is what I had on hand)
  • cooking spray
  • optional: additional guacamole, salsa

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 425 and grease a baking sheet.
  • Lay your tortillas out on a flat surface. Spread refried beans in the middle of each tortilla. Spread guacamole on top of the beans. Add shredded chicken, then shredded cheese. Roll into a burrito.(I filled mine a bit too full so they wouldn’t fully roll.  I had to hold them together with toothpicks)
  • Place burritos on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray.  Bake for 15-20 minutes until the tortillas are browned and crispy. Serve warm with additional guacamole and salsa if desired.
