Less Guilt on Cinco de Mayo: Crispy, Oven-Baked Chimichangas

Saturday is Cinco de Mayo, so I figured (like every other food blogger on the planet this week) that I’d throw a Mexican inspired meal your way.  I love Mexican food and, thankfully, my family does as well, so we are frequent patrons at the Mexican restaurants around town.  Every time we try a new Mexican place, my husband orders a chimichanga.  He feels that if they can make a chimi that he enjoys, it’s worth stopping in to visit them again.  I love a good chimi myself, but my waistline does not.  They are delicious for a reason…chicken or beef, stuffed with cheese...more
