Crispy chicken chimichanga burritos! These are so yummy and healthy because they’re baked instead of fried!

Ingredients

  • 4 large burrito-size flour tortillas
  • 1/2 cup refried beans
  • 1 cup guacamole (optional, but highly recommended!)
  • 2 cups shredded chicken (see recipe below for the easy slow cooker chicken I used!)
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican style cheese (cheddar, monterey, jack cheese, use your favorite!)
  • oil or cooking spray
  • optional: additional guacamole, salsa
  • Ingredients

  • 2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 and grease a baking sheet.
  • Lay your tortillas out on a flat surface. Spread refried beans in the middle of each tortilla. Spread guacamole on top of the beans. Add shredded chicken, then shredded cheese. Roll into a burrito.
  • Place burritos on prepared baking sheet. Spray generously with cooking spray, OR brush with oil. Bake for 15-20 minutes until the tortillas are browned and crispy. Serve warm with additional guacamole and salsa if desired.
  • Instructions

  • Add all ingredients to slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for 2-3 hours or on low 3-4 hours.
  • Take the lid off the slow cooker, shred the chicken with two forks. Give it a stir and let it sit in the juices for about 10-15 minutes before serving or using for other purpose.
