Keto Chimichangas


  • 3 cups cooked, shredded chicken
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 (4 ounce) can green chiles
  • 1/4 cup salsa
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 6 large tortillas (regular, gluten free or low carb)
  • Avocado oil for frying

For topping:

  • Salsa, sour cream and guacamole , optional


  1. Simply combine the filling ingredients and stir well. Make sure the cream cheese spreads easily, and there are no clumps.
  2. Add the filling to the center of a large tortilla and fold the ends toward the filling and roll the edges in (this is how you would roll a burrito. Place the chimichanga seam side down.


Heat a skillet over medium heat, add enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan. Place the chimichanga seam side down and cook 2-3 minutes until golden brown. Then turn and cook all sides until golden and crisp.


Place chimichangas seam-side down on a greased baking sheet. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and brush or spray well with avocado or olive oil. Bake 20-25 minutes until golden brown.

Air Frying:

Preheat the air fryer to 390 degrees F for 3 minutes. Brush or spray all sides of the chimichanga with oil and place seam side down in the air fryer. Cook 4 minutes, then flip. If your seam is trying to open, use a toothpick to secure or let it cook an additional minute seam side down. Cook an additional 4-5 minutes until it has browned to your liking.
