Very Good 4.7/5
(3 ratings)

This receipe was revised from one I found at kraftfoods.com. They used ground skinless chicken breast but I prefer turkey. I also prefer the Tostitos Gold Tortilla Chips - they don't get as soggy and add a crunch.

These tasty burritos are fast enough to make after even the busiest of days...and are great with a green salad on the side...I find they really are best with the smoky, yet robust, flavor of Ancho chili powder, but any will do fine...just adjust the amount as necessary to counteract a potential SU-heat overdose...

Cookbook creator says: this was pretty good, I have left overs in the freezer so I'll have to see how that goes. Good with homemade hot sauce.

This is a perfect meal when you feel the need to feel full. Add as much water as you'd like to make the serving larger without adding calories. I use 99% lean organic ground beef and serve it over lettuce wedges.

Wrap this chicken in tortillas with whatever extra fillings you enjoy. Delicious! (And much better than that fajita seasoning you buy in packets!)

Try my recipe for Refried Beans with this too!

This recipe is for chicken chimichangos baked in the oven. It is an easy dish to make and gets high ratings in my house. Compliment this dish with some mexican rice for a nice dinner under 400 calories.

If you are cooking for someone on a low sodium diet, use this recipe instead of taco seasoning. This recipe is the equivelant to one package of taco seasoning (or 3 tablespoons.) Adjust the strength of any ingredient to your taste.

Similar concept to another recipe of mine, and other popular recipes on this site, but this recipe uses low sodium ingredients, and is still very tasty! I freeze leftovers in small microwaveable containers, and place them back in the refridgerator the day before I want to reheat them.
