Baked Turkey Chimichangas

Pin It

Here is another dish for your Cinco de Mayo party!!

These were really yummy!  However, next time I'm going to use ground beef instead of turkey.  Usually I don't mind using turkey instead of beef, but in this recipe, I think beef would taste much better, though John liked the turkey.  Either way, it's super yummy! 

I made mini chimis using small flour tortillas.
