We love the tasty little recipes from Gimme Some Oven! This is a great one for an easy summer lunch. It only takes 10 minutes to prep and 25 to cook and will feed 4-6.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups shredded or chopped cooked chicken
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Mexican cheese
  • 2/3 cup salsa (drained of excess water, if possible)
  • 6 (8-inch) tortillas
  • 1 Tbsp. melted butter
  • Optional Toppings: sour cream, additional salsa or diced tomatoes, guacamole and/or fresh cilantro

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
  2. Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil and mist with cooking spray
  3. In a bowl, stir together chicken, cheese and salsa until well-mixed.
  4. Spoon approximately 1/2 cup of the mixture into the center of a tortilla.
  5. Fold in the sides, then roll the tortilla from bottom to top to make a chimichanga (burrito) shape.
  6. Place the chimichanga seam side down on the baking sheet.
  7. Repeat with remaining tortillas and filling mixture.
  8. Bake for 25 minutes until tortillas are golden brown.
  9. Remove and serve immediately, with additional toppings if desired
