Easy Dinner – Delicious Baked Chimichangas

Posted by  ·  August 31, 2016  ·  Last Updated: August 31, 2016

My family loves Mexican meals and these Baked Chimichangas are easy fix for their cravings! This works together in a cinch if you keeps cooked chicken in your freezer. I am sure a rotisseri chicken could stand in in a pinch. I use my Instapot to cook chicken fast. Some of our other favorite easy dinners with a Mexican flair are Slow Cooker Nachos, Mexican Skillet Rice, Southwestern Salad and if you too have a pressure cooker you will like my Pressure Cooker Mexican Beans and Rice.  If you want to make your own seasoning to avoid extra chemicals we use this homemade taco seasoning.

Baked Chimichangas

  • 1 cup of your favorite salsa
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, chopped (just over a pound)
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 green onions, chopped with some green tops ( about 1/4 cup)
  • 8 (8 inch) flour tortillas
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted (or cooking spray)
  • shredded cheddar cheese, chopped tomatoes, shredded lettuce, avocado for garnish

Mix together chicken, salsa, cumin, oregano, cheese and onions.  Place about 1/2  cup of the chicken mixture in the center of each tortilla. Fold in ends of tortilla than wrap opposite sides over filling. Place seam side down on a baking sheet.  Brush with melted butter or spray with cooking spray.  Bake at 400°F for 25 minutes or until golden. Garnish and serve!
