Skinny Chimichangas


½ lb ground skinless turkey breast
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp dried oregano
½ tsp ground cumin
8 ounce can tomato sauce
2 Tbs chopped mild green chiles
1/3 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
Four 8-inch fat-free flour tortillas

1. Preheat 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 turkey, onion, garlic, chili powder, oregano and cumin. Cook, breaking up the turkey with a wooden spoon until browned, about 6 minutes. Stir in 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 ½ 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.
