Cha ching! The calorie count rises faster than a lawyer's bill when an overstuffed burrito hits the deep-fryer and gets covered in cheese. The classic chimichanga boasts 730 calories and 40g of fat. For the season of swimsuits and shorts, we'd thought we'd shave some calorie-filled layers off this heavy-handed classic.
Classic 731 calories each 41.3 grams total fat 1,358 milligrams sodium
Makeover 296 calories each 10.3 grams total fat 625 milligrams sodium
We coat the chimichangas in cooking spray then pan-sear in a superhot skillet for a crispy, crunchy finish—not a drop of oil needed. Save 120 calories and 14g fat per chimichanga over the deep-fried version.
