Ingredients

    1 cup picante sauce
    3/4 tbls ground cumin
    1 tbls dried oregano
    12 ounces chicken breast cooked
    1 3/4 cups of reduced fat cheddar cheese
    3 green onions
    8 flour tortillas (make sure there low in cal.)

Directions

Cut chicken in to inch pieces, put in skillet and cook till done. I chop up chicken while cooking to make it smaller.
Take green onions and cut them up should yield around 1/2 cup. set 1/4 a side for later.
Then in a bowl add chicken,1 &1/4 cups of cheese, 1 cup of salsa, cumin, oregano, most of the green onions in a bowl. Mix ingredients together.
Then take 1tbls of butter and melt it.
Spread refried beens on tortilla and then place 1/8 of mixture in a tortilla and fold like a burrito. Repeat till all 8 tortillas are filled. Place them in a nonstick baking pan. Bruch butter on top to help it brown and get nice and crisp. Place in a oven at 400* for 25 min. Once it looks crisp, add the rest of the cheese and top with left over onions and place back in oven till melted. Let set for 5 min before serving. I like to put some extra salsa and light sour cream on mine. One chimichanga per serving.
