Skinny Chimichangas

With all the baking I have been doing, I have been trying to make sure that we are having healthy yet scrumptious meals at night! :) This one fit the bill to a T. Although I swapped out the turkey for beef it was still quick, easy and healthy!

Skinny Chimichangas
(recipe found at

1/2 pound ground skinless turkey breast
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
8 ounces tomato sauce
2 tablespoons chopped mild green chiles
1/3 cup shredded reduced fat cheddar cheese
4 (8") fat free flour tortillas

Preheat oven to 400. Spray a nonstick baking sheet with nonstick spray. Cook turkey, onion, garlic, chili powder, oregano and cumin in skillet until turkey is browned, about 6 minutes. Stir in tomato sauce and chiles; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, until the flavors are blended and the mixture thickens slightly, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in cheddar. Spoon about 1/2 cup of the filling into the center of each tortilla. Fold in sides, then roll to enclose the filling. Place the chimichangas, seam side down, on the baking sheet. Lightly spry tops of the tortillas with nonstick spray. Bake until golden and crisp, about 20 minutes. Do not turn.
