We love Mexican Food. This is a cross between A Burrito and a Chimichanga, BUT NO Deep-frying!
Loved it when I ran across this some time ago.

Ingredients

3 cups cooked, shredded chicken
1 cup chunky red salsa, mild or medium
1-4 oz. can diced chilies
4 burrito sized flour tortillas
1 tbsp. vegetable oil

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat oven to 400F
In a bowl combine Chicken, salsa and chilies.
2
Heat the tortillas just a little in a dry skillet to make them pliable.
Spoon the mixture on the tortillas.
Roll them up Burrito style.
Bottom over the mixture, sides in and then roll away from you.
3
Place on a baking sheet brush top of each one lightly with oil.
Bake until golden, about 20 minutes.

While they are baking heat your enchilada sauce either in a small pot on the stove or in the microwave.
When serving place some warm sauce on a plate, lay a chimichito on top, add a spoon of sour cream, cheese and some cilantro. Enjoy!
Note: Sometimes I also add cheese to the filling, like mine! :-)
