    Northwest Lynnie's Note:

    This is an authentic 40 year-old recipe, and the filling will not taste the same as fast food style chimichangas. The only thing Americanized here is that the chimichangas are baked instead of fried. Caution: If you use leanest ground beef, the filling will seem dry. Serve lots of lettuce, tomatoes and other garnishes listed below with each chimichanga - they are important to this dish's all around flavors and textures.

      This is soooooo good! I did cook the garlic in the meat towards the very end. I also added a little picante sauce, just to make it a little more saucy. I only added a little so I don't think it made much of a difference so I won't do that again. Added some cheese to the inside then also some on the top after they came out.
      These were very simple and quick to make, I had dinner done in about 30 mins.
      I have 6 kids and some very picky eaters and everyone of them ate all of their serving and came back asking for more.
      We will be making these again that is for sure!

      Man! I really liked these! Halfed the recipe. Garnished with chopped lettuce, tomatoes, grated cheese and guacamole. Next time, sour cream and black olives in addition to the above. The addition of the vinegar was the ticket. Very tasty. And, they are crispy without frying. Try 'em!

      Very good and easy. I did have to bake them for 12 min. to get light brown. Loved them with all the extras.
