WW Baked Turkey and Jack Cheese Chimichangas

5 Jul

The other night I actually (gasp!) had a couple of minutes to make a normal people dinner, and I tried out WW’s recipe for Turkey & Jack Cheese Chimichangas.  I thought that a chimichanga was deep fried, and these were more like baked burritos.  But these were really good and healthy, and took less than an hour to make, so tomato/tamatah who care what they’re called, they are good!

The filling cooking in the saucepan.

1 chimichanga was only 6 WW PointsPlus.  They are flavorful, extremely filling, and don’t taste “diet” at all.  I think the trick is that WW calls for less meat and cheese and lots of beans, so the dish has less of the fatty things and more of the high fiber, filling things.

Ready to go in the oven!

Garnish with some avocado slices, and here’s dinner! Steamed broccoli is a HUGE favorite in our house.  I don’t know why people say that kids don’t like broccoli, because our kid could eat her weight in broccoli.  I don’t think we ever have leftovers of steamed broccoli, we eat an entire head in a meal. It’s ridiculous.  Although I suppose there are much worse things we could be gorging ourselves on.
