No-Fry Chimichangas


1 lb. ground turkey
1/2 c. onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 tsp. chili powder
1/2 c. cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 can (regular can is 4 oz., use 2 oz.) diced green chilies, drained
1/2 c. fresh cilantro, chopped
4-6 large flour tortillas
No-stick spray
Salsa & sour cream

In a large skillet, brown turkey, onions, garlic and chili powder. Cook until turkey is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the cheese, chilies and cilantro. To assemble, spoon 1/4-1/2 cup of turkey mixture into each tortilla. Fold in ends, then roll tortilla and secure with wooden toothpicks. Spray both sides of rolled tortilla with no-stick spray. In a large skillet or griddle, cook filled tortillas over medium heat for 3-4 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Remove from skillet and keep warm until all tortillas are finished. Serve with salsa and sour cream.

Tips: This is a fun Mexican dinner with a twist that jazzes up plain ol' burritos. I used my Pampered Chef Kitchen Spritzer in place of no-stick spray because I like the idea of using regular oil. Make sure to watch the tortillas as you are cooking them or they can easily become very brown. It was challenging to push the toothpicks through to the other side once you are ready to turn the tortilla but tongs can help. I also shared this recipe at We are THAT Family's Works-For-Me Wednesday.
