This is a 'healthy' version of a chimi. Not fried, baked. And it turns out nice and crispy. I got this recipe from "Apples of Gold", a bible study that my church did a couple of years ago. These freeze well too. I flash freeze them, then if I can grab just one serving, or several.
6 seven or eight inch tortilla shells
1/2 tsp salt
1 # ground chicken (I put cooked chicken in a food processor to get a fine texture)
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/4 cup chopped green chilies
1/4 cup salsa (hot, med. or mild)
1/4 cup refried beans
1/4 cup sour cream
1 cup cheese
Mix all ingredients well.
Soften tortilla shells in microwave for 10 seconds.
Put 1/3 cup filling in center of tortilla shell. Roll one turn then turn sides in and continue to roll until chimi is formed. Place each chimi seam side down, in a lightly greased baking pan. Brush top and bottom of each chimi lightly with the melted butter. Bake at 425 for 20 minutes.
This can also be made with beef or pork.
