Air Fryer Chimichangas


Chimichangas, deep-fried burritos popular in Tex-Mex cuisine, are seriously delicious, but usually dripping in grease and loaded with calories. These lighter chicken, green chile, and pepper Jack cheese Chimichangas are a much healthier twist on the classic.

1/2 cup diced tomato
3 tablespoons chopped onion
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro, plus more for garnish
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper

12 ounces shredded leftover or rotisserie chicken breast
Juice of 1/2 navel orange
