Baked Chimichangas

Posted by Marie
This is one of our favorite things to do with leftover roast or chicken and is much healthier than the fried alternative. I will spray mine with butter spray for less calories and it turns out fine-just not as crispy as the others.

Shredded cooked chicken, pork or beef
1 1/2 cup beef broth
3 Tlbs red wine vinegar
1 Tlbs chili powder
1 tsp cumin
Flour tortillas
3 Tlbs butter, melted
Shredded cheese
Refried beans

Combine broth, vinegar, chili powder and cumin in saucepan and add meat. Boil until tender and liquid is absorbed. Combine with beans and cheese.
Brush both sides of tortillas with melted butter, spoon filling down middle of each tortilla. Fold ends over filling, then place seam-side down in 9x13 inch pan.
Bake in a 500 degree oven for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown
Serve with additional cheese, sour cream, salsa, cilantro, spansh rice, etc.
