Number of Servings: 8


    2 spray(s) cooking spray
    1/2 pound(s) lean ground turkey
    16 oz fat-free canned refried beans
    1 3/4 cup(s) salsa
    4 1/2 oz canned green chili peppers, mild, drained and diced
    1 tsp chili powder
    3 Tbsp scallion(s), thinly sliced
    1 cup(s) shredded reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese
    8 large burrito-size wheat flour tortilla(s)
    1 cup(s) salsa
    1/2 cup(s) fat-free sour cream (optional)


Preheat oven to 350F. Coat a large skillet with cooking spray. Coat a 13- X 9- X 2-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

Add turkey to skillet and cook over medium-high heat until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Drain any excess liquid from pan and then add beans, 1 3/4 cups of salsa, chili peppers, chili powder and scallions. Cook until heated through, about 3 minutes; stir in cheese.

Meanwhile, wrap tortillas in foil; warm in oven for 10 minutes.

Assemble chimichangas by spooning about 1/2 cup of turkey mixture onto each tortilla; fold in sides and roll up.

Place chimichangas, seam-side down, in prepared baking dish. Bake, uncovered, until tortillas are crisp and browned, about 20 minutes. Serve each topped with 2 tablespoons of salsa and 1 tablespoon of sour cream.
