My World and Welcome to It!

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general. I also get daily prompts from DSP which inspire me to write. If I throw in some scrapbook pages I've done, photos I've taken, and stories about me, you will have an idea about my loony life!

Baked Chimichangas

Baked Chimichangas

8 oz. cooked chicken, turkey, pork or beef (1 ½ cups)
1 8 oz. jar salsa
1 16-oz. can refried beans
1 4 ½ oz. can diced green chili peppers, drained
3 T thinly sliced green onions
4 oz. Monterey Jack or cheddar cheese, shredded (1 cup)
8 8- to 9- inch flour tortillas
Sour cream (optional)
Salsa (optional)
Thinly sliced green onion (optional)

1. Using 2 forks, shred cooked poultry, pork, or beef. In a large skillet combine meat, salsa, beans, chili peppers, and green onions. Cook and stir over medium heat until heated through. Stir in cheese.
2. Meanwhile, wrap tortillas in foil; warm in 350 degree oven for 10 min. For each chimichanga, spoon about ½ cup meat mixture on a tortilla, near 1 edge. Fold in sides; roll up.
3. Place in a baking pan or on a baking sheet. Bake, uncovered, in a 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes or until heated through and tortillas are crisp and brown.
4. If desired, top with a spoon of salsa, then a drop of sour cream, and sprinkle green onions on top to make it look pretty.

Hi! Stephanie at Our Own International Multiples Club recommended I look at your blog. I'm interested in digital scrapbooking, but I'm unsure of what program to use. I really enjoyed looking at your layouts on your slide, and I was wondering what you use to arrange them. Feel free to drop a line over at my blog: Hope to hear from you soon!
