A fast and healthier way to serve Chimichangas than the traditional deep fried. These are very good, and you may dress them up to you own preference. I like to serve with green chile sauce sometimes instead of the picante sauce.
1Mix chicken, picante sauce or salsa, cumin, oregano, cheese and onions.
2Place about 1/4 cup of the chicken mixture in the center of each tortilla.
3Fold opposite sides over filling.
4Roll up from bottom and place seam-side down on a baking sheet.
5Brush with melted margarine.
6Bake at 400F for 25 minutes or until golden.
7Garnish with additional cheese and green onion and serve salsa on the side.

You can add cayenne pepper to the mixture, along with a little bit of garlic salt, roma tomato, and pepper. Instead of margerine, brush with olive oil as a subsitute.
