Baked Chicken Chimichangas Recipe

I love making 6-8 of these when my husband and his friends watch the game! I love feeding a crowd!


2 cups cooked chicken, shredded

1 cup Monterey Jack cheese, grated

1/2 cup salsa, plus extra for serving


1 can (4 ounces) green chiles, diced , drained

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 teaspoon chili powder

Salt and pepper to taste


6 large flour tortillas

Olive oil or cooking spray for greasing

Optional for serving: Sour Cream, Guacamole, and Fresh Chopped Cilantro


Preheat the oven to 400°F to create a warm environment for baking your chimichangas.


In a large bowl, combine chicken, cheese, salsa, green chilies, cumin, oregano and chili powder.Season with salt and pepper.

Lay a tortilla flat, place some of the chicken mixture in the middle, fold in the sides and roll up tightly to cover the filling.

Place chimichangas seam side down on a greased baking sheet so that they bake evenly.

Brush the top with olive oil or spray with cooking spray and then bake until golden brown, 25-30 minutes.

Allow to cool slightly before serving, garnish with sour cream, guacamole and coriander if desired.
