Great! I figured up using the low carb tortillas & it was 3 points. 1 point for the meat & 2 for the flour tortilla. That was doing 1/4 cup meat as they said. This ones a keeper!

I use cooked shredded chicken breast or turkey breast in place of the ground meat. Wonderful!

Great recipe. My sons loved it too!
Easy to make and can be reheated in a toaster oven.

These are so good baked. Chimichangas fried are the worst thing out there for you but the baked version here is delicious and healthy!
