A great alternative to a chimichanga. A great alternative to a chimichanga.
Number of Servings: 6


    6 wonton Wrappers
    1/2 cup canned yellow or white corn (drained)
    1/2 cup canned black beans (drained)
    8 tsp taco seasoning
    1/4 cup chopped onions (any kind)
    1 cup of tap water
    6 oz of chicken breast (cut into 1/2 inch pieces)
    6 sprays of cooking spray


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In medium saucepan over high heat, add first 7 ingredients and bring mixture to a boil.
Boil while stirring constantly for 10 minutes.
Lower heat to simmer, cover and cook for 20 minutes.
Drain liquid from mixture.
Lay out 6 wonton wrappers on counter and put about 2 tablespoons (1/6 of mixture) in the middle of each wrapper. Use cooking spray to help "seal" the wrapper.
*** You can add cheese at this time but it is not calculated in the nutritional information.***
Roll the wrapper by folding each end in first (just like a burrito) and place on cookie sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes.
Let roll cool for about 5 minutes before serving.
This is very good as an appetizer or as part of a main course and is delicious served with salsa and fat free sour cream, but can easily stand on its own.
You can substitute the chicken for extra lean pork tenderloin, lean steak, lean ground beef or veggie steak/chicken.
I use leftover meat for this dish all the time and the family goes bonkers over it.

    I loved this recipe I put in some tomatoes and peppers from the garden and green chiles because I love them so much. Big hit in the whole house! - 9/11/08

    These were wonderful!! My sister even ate them, and she claims she doesn't like black beans! A nice hearty addition to our meal- even though these are all I ate!! YUM! - 8/2/08

    This was awesome!!! Instead of taco mix, I stewed the chicken in salsa. I also gave in and added 3/4 C cheese. This was a big time family hit!!! - 7/29/08

    Had to laugh - this recipe says to mix the FIRST SEVEN ingredients and the wonton wrappers are the FIRST item on the recipe. I am a great cook and know NOT to throw them in with the other six ingredients!! Some people might follow the recipe and not even read it through. - 3/17/09

    I will try these. They sound fantastic and I love Mexican food. What size wanton wrappers were used in the recipe? There are several sizes at the store. - 2/18/09

    Hi Aallconk! I have only found one size of Egg Roll wrappers at my stores. There are also won ton wrappers (which are much smaller). However, I live in Pennsylvania and we may not have as big of a selection they are about 5"x5" (I'm guessing since I don't have them in front of me). I hope this helps
