Chicken Chimis with Green Sauce....

DELICIOUS!  These were so simple to make and tasted like you were eating at a Mexican restaurant!!  Not a very healthy meal, but a great treat.

Chicken Chimichangas with Green Sauce 

1 pound shredded cooked chicken (I bought pre cooked chicken from the store to make it quick and easy!)
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (8 ounce) bag shredded monterey Jack cheese
1/2 (1.25 ounce) package taco seasoning
8 (10 inch) flour tortillas
2 (10.5 ounce) cans cream of chicken soup
2 (4 ounce) cans chopped green chilies
5 large pitted green olives
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
1 lime, juiced
vegetable oil
shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 cup diced green onions
sour cream

  1. Pour the cream of chicken soup into a blender along with the green chiles, olives, jalapeno, and lime juice. Puree until smooth, then pour into a saucepan, and warm over medium-low heat while proceeding with the recipe.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the cream cheese, Monterey Jack cheese, and taco seasoning until well blended. Fold in the chicken. Evenly divide mixture among the 8 tortillas. Fold each tortilla into a rectangular packet around the filling.
  3. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry 4 chimichangas at a time until golden brown, then drain on a plate lined with paper towels.
  4. To serve, place a chimichanga on a plate, and ladle the warm sauce overtop. Sprinkle with Cheddar cheese and green onions. Finish with a dollop of sour cream.
