Chimichangas



1 lb Extra Lean Ground Beef
1 (16 oz) Can Refried Beans
3/4 Cup Salsa
2 Cloves Garlic
1 tsp Chili Powder
3 Tbsp Chopped Onion
3/4 Cup Shredded Lowfat Cheddar Cheese
8 Flour Tortillas (I used a Flax Variety) 

~ Of course I added about 3 Tbsp fresh chopped cilantro and extra cheddar cheese for the top. You will soon learn that I LOVE cheese and I LOVE cilantro, so any opportunity to add either is a good one! :-)

Preheat Oven to 350*
Brown Ground Beef in large skillet, until no longer pink. Drain then add onion and garlic, chili powder, salsa, and refried beans until heated through. Stir in cheese and cilantro. Warm tortillas in microwave then spoon about 1/2 Cup (I did about 3/4 Cup and ended up with 7) of beef mixture into each tortilla. Fold sides and roll. Place into a 9x13 inch baking pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Bake uncovered for about 20 minutes or until crisp and golden. About 5 minutes before it is done, sprinkle cheese on top and let melt. Remove from oven and serve with sour cream and salsa if desired.
