Baked Chimichanga with Poblano Avocado Sauce

posted in: Recipes | 0

Baked chimichangas are a wonderful way to enjoy a crispy crunchy texture without the fat you would typically get from frying. My chimichangas gives you a punch of flavor from the ingredients on the inside as well as from the poblano avocado sauce drizzled on top. I really hope you enjoy my version of this Tex-mex classic!

Instructions

Chimichanga

  • In a pan over medium heat, add black beans with butter, chili powder and salts and heat for 5 - 7 minutes. Set aside.
  • Heat pan over medium heat. Add oil and heat for 1 minute, then add turkey meat and cook for 8 minutes or until the pink.
  • Add "Taco Seasoning" ingredients and water to the turkey meat and cook until the sauce thickens and the water has almost evaporated. About 5 minutes.
  • To assemble, lay flour tortilla on a cutting board. In the center of the wrap, add ¼ cup of rice, ¼ cup of black beans, and then 1/3 cup of turkey meat. Cover with cheese and then wrap like a burrito. Make sure everything is sealed tight and then lay seam side down on a cookie sheet. Brush with melted butter and then salt. Repeat for the other burritos.
  • Place burritos into the oven and broil until the tortilla turns a crispy brown. Make sure you keep an eye on it! About 5-8 Minutes

Sauce

  • While you are working on the Chimichanga, you can also work on the sauce. Add all "Roasting" ingredients to a cookie sheet lined with foil. Mix so the oil evenly coats the vegetables and bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
  • Remove roasting ingredients from the oven and put into a blender. Add the "Blending" ingredients to the blender and mix well, about 2-3 minutes.
  • To serve, plate a Chimichanga, then drizzle with the poblano avocado sauce. Add some sour cream, lettuce and pico de gallo to the plate.
