Does anyone have a chicken chimichonga (sp?)recipe to share?

I always seem to order these when I go to Mexican restaurants. Each place might be a little different, but they are always good. I'd love to make them at home so if you have a great recipe to share, I appreciate it.

    1/4 teaspoon ground oregano
    1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
    1 1/2 pounds cooked chicken breast, shredded while warm
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
