Hi Everyone,

Looking for a spicy recipe that the whole family will enjoy?  This is a terrific recipe for to swap out for the traditional deep-fried chimichanga that you can order at your favorite restaurant!  Instead of deep-frying, you simply assemble the burrito, spray it with cooking spray, and brown it in the oven.  This method leaves the shell nice and crunch without all the added fat and calories!

Tiffany’s Tip:  I like to turn the broiler on for the last 1 or 2 of cooking to allow the shells to brown just a little on the top.  A great topping is a little Greek Yogurt…..use it like sour cream!  Tons of protein and very few calories!
