Day 1 Recipe-Skinny Chimichanga

Thursday, October 04, 2012

I am trying to cook a recipe a day out of one of my many cookbooks or Sparkepeople Recipes. Tonight's dinner Skinny Chimichangas.

It was a simple recipe out of one of the Weight Watchers cookbooks. Here is the recipe with my changes.

1 pound ground beef
1 onion, chopped
4 tsp chili powder
2 tsp oregano
1 tsp cumin

Brown this together and drain off excess fat.

Add to the meat:

1 jar green chili salsa
1 can green chilies

Bring to boil and simmer about 5 minutes to thicken.

Add 2/3 cup cheese

Put 1/2 cup mixture in tortilla fold in sides than roll up. Place seam side down on greased baking sheat. Spray tops with cooking spray.

Bake at 400*F for 20 mins.

It was really good and filling. Makes 8 servings.

Here are the stats:
Cal 293.4
Fat 8.5
Carbs 34.6
Fiber 3.5

Original recipe called for ground turkey and tomato sauce instead of salsa. I like more flavor.

Tomorrow I will do a quick lunch as I have work and a football game.

Till then.
