Chicken filling:

1 pound cooked chicken , chopped or shredded

1 1/2 cups salsa , your favorite kind

1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves , crushed

1 1/4 cups light shredded cheddar cheese

2 green onions , chopped

6 1 point tortillas

nonstick cooking spray

Green Chile Sauce:

3 Tablespoons light butter

3 Tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 clove garlic , minced

2 cups low-sodium chicken broth

1/2 teaspoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves , crushed

salt and freshly ground black pepper , to taste

4 ounces mild chopped green chilies

1/3 cup light shredded cheese

1/2 light cup sour cream

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper.

  • Make the filling: Mix chicken, salsa, cumin, oregano, cheese and onions. Place a heaping 1/2 cup or so of the chicken mixture in the center of each tortilla.

  • Fold the sides of the tortilla in and roll up tightly like a burrito. Place seam-side down on baking sheet. Brush lightly with olive oil or spray with non stick cooking spray.

  • Bake at 400°F for about 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.

  • Make the sauce: Meanwhile, prepare sauce by melting butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Once melted and bubbling, whisk in flour and cook, stirring constantly for about 3 minutes. Add minced garlic and stir for 30 seconds. Gradually whisk in chicken broth. Add cumin, oregano, and a dash of salt and pepper and cook, stirring, until thickened, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in green chilies, cheese and sour cream. Tastes and add more seasonings if needed.

  • Broil: Remove burritos from oven and turn the oven to HIGH broil. Ladle a spoonful of sauce over each burrito and top with a handful of shredded cheddar cheese. Broil for 2-3 minutes, or until cheese has melted.
