Skinny Chimichangas

Another nod to white girl Mexican food.  Hah!  This I found on Recipe Girl.  Ive never actually made my own chimichangas before and this seemed like the time to try it out.  My only real complaint is that you have to wait forever for them to cool down.  Maybe it's just because we were starving.  When we could eat them, they were delicious.

Yields 4 servings

1/2 lb ground turkey 
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp ground cumin
8 oz tomato sauce
2 tbsp mild green chilies
1/3 c reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese
4 flour tortillas

Preheat oven to 400.
Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.

Spray a large skillet with cooking spray & heat over medium high heat.
Add turkey, onion, garlic, chili powder, oregano, & cumin.
Cook until turkey is browned, 6 minutes.
Stir in tomato sauce and chilies; bring to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer until sauce thickens, about 5 minutes.
Remove from heat & stir in cheddar.

Meanwhile, wrap tortillas in aluminum foil and place in the oven for 10 minutes to warm.

Spoon about 1/2 c of the filling into the center of each tortilla.
Wrap and place seam-side down on baking sheet.
Lightly spray with cooking spray and bake for 20 minutes.
