Oven-Fried Chicken Chimichangas

So, I don't know if you know this about me or not, but I am a sucker for a recipe with ALOT of positive reviews. This recipe for Oven-Fried Chicken Chimichangas has 521 reviews and 5 STARS!!! WOW!! Might as well be 522 reviews of 5 stars because it is pretty darn good!

So easy too!!

$0.84 2/3 cup picante sauce or your favorite salsa ($3.79 for a 24 oz bottle...I used 5 1/3 oz)
$2.19 1 1/2 cups cooked chicken, chopped (One BIG Chk Breast...the package of 3 was $6.58)
$1.50 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (1/2 of a 2 c bag $3.00)
$0.55 2 green onions, chopped with some tops (about 1/4 cup)
$1.79 6(8 inch) flour tortillas ($2.99 for 10)

$1.50 Rice
$1.69 Refried Beans
$10.06 TOTAL!

I am horrible at this challenge. I feel like I had to do some serious math calculations to get it that close to $10. This is a keeper recipe though!! Lucky for me, my husband is a spendthrift. I did take leftovers for lunch the following two days...

This does seem pretty simple, but I think I have all the ingredients on hand. I'll probably make it this week!
