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.

"First made 10/1/09 - Great. Filling was wonderful and would be good as quesadilla filling or maybe on nachos. I had extra and lined a cup with a flour tortilla and filled with the chicken mixture. The corn flavor was really good so I would like to play around with this combination again. "

My husband and O made this about a month ago. It was FANTASTIC!!! I love chimi's with chedder cheese. They tasted just like the ones I used to get a Chi Chi's, but since they are not fried and are baked I am sure they are somewhat healthier. We are making them 2nite but I am going to try it with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter instead of margarine and light shredded chedder cheese to make them a bit healthier
