Tasty Tuesday: Chimichangas, a Healthier Version
I originally posted this a few years ago and recently had a few requests from some Facebook friends to post the recipe so I thought I'd post it again here as well.
I want to share more in detail how I do my Chimichangas. Just because your favorite recipe is loaded with fat, or is relatively unhealthy, doesn't mean you have to throw it out the window. Just be more creative as I've said before.
One of my favorite meals is Chimichangas. Whenever I go out for Mexican, that's what I order. However, it is loaded with fat because it's fried!! I found a way to make them at home. Here's how I do it. Well, first off a few other pics. Gotta have lots of toppings....so we use tomatoes, mushrooms, olives, and also lettuce and avocado. You could add whatever your family likes.
Cook your chicken breasts. I boiled mine this time and it turned out great. Often times I will use the microwave, but it tends to cook too much on the edges. Boiling them doesn't take that long.
Then shred the chicken. You shred it by going with the grain. It just shreds easily. Yesterday I cooked them on the stove top and chopped them with my Pampered chef food chopper. That works too.
Begin folding. Fold first the end facing you, then fold in each side.
