Oven Baked Chimichangas

Contributed by: Karen
(Recipe came from Good Things Utah)

2/3 cup prepared salsa
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp oregano
1 - 2 cups shredded chicken or beef
1 cup cheese (I usually use 1/2 cheddar and 1/2 Monterey Jack)
Onion, diced (to preference or leave out)
6 flour tortillas
1 Tbsp melted butter

Mix together salsa, spices, meat, cheese & onion. Place mixture on tortillas, fold sides in then roll from bottom. Place seam side down in baking dish or cookie sheet and brush with butter. Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned. Top with usual taco toppings.

**Karen's note: This is very simple but yummy recipe. This freezes well, so I usually make a double batch and put 6 in the freezer for another quick dinner. **
