“These have a little bit of a kick to them, but they are very good!! I put some recommendations to alter them a bit too, because the original recipe seemed like it needed something added to it. I came up with this recipe based on some chicken enchiladas my mom used to make, and some inspiration from other chimichanga recipes.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 16 ounces sour cream
  • 16 ounces medium salsa (can use Mild if you do not like spicy things)
  • 12 ounces grilled chicken breasts, cuts
  • 1 (2 cup) bagshredded mexican taco cheese
  • 1 14 ounces taco seasoning
  • flour tortilla


  1. Preheat oven at 350.
  2. Mix the sour cream and taco seasoning together. Add in chicken chunks, salsa, 1 1/2 cups of cheese, and other ingredients, - mix together.
  3. Take approximately 2-3 spoonfuls of mixture and place them on tortilla shell. (Be sure to save some of the mixture as a topping for later.).
  4. Fold in the sides of tortilla, and roll up. Place in baking dish.
  5. Take remaining mixture, and place over the top of the tortillas in the baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheese until covered to your liking.
  6. Oven should be preheated at this point - put baking dish in oven for approximately 25-30 minutes. You want to bake it until all of the cheese is melted on the top and is starting to get a golden color to it.
  7. **I would recommend adding some spanish rice or black beans to the recipe. The recipe tastes really good as is, but it seemed like it needed something more too it, like rice or beans.**.
