Servings 4  servings

NGREDIENTS

  • 8 ounces 99% lean ground turkey
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 medium garlic clove, minced
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • One 8-ounce can tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons chopped mild green chiles
  • 1/3 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
  • Four 8-inch low carb flour tortillas

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Spray a nonstick baking sheet with nonstick spray.
  2. Spray a nonstick skillet with nonstick spray; set over medium-high heat. Add the turkey, onion, garlic, chili powder, oregano and cumin. Cook, breaking up the turkey with a wooden spoon until browned, about 6 minutes. Stir in the tomato sauce and chiles; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, until the flavors are blended and the mixture thickens slightly, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the cheddar.
  3. Meanwhile, wrap the tortillas in foil and place in the oven to warm for 10 minutes.
  4. Spoon about 1/2 cup of the filling into the center of each tortilla. Fold in the sides, then roll to enclose the filling. Place the chimichangas, seam-side down, on the baking sheet. Lightly spray the tops of the tortillas with nonstick spray. Bake until golden and crisp, about 20 minutes. Do not turn.
