- Heat oven to 350°. Cook ground meat in large skillet over medium-high heat until browned, stirring frequently. Add bell pepper and onion stir-fry and corn; cook until meat is thoroughly cooked and vegetables are crisp-tender, stirring occasionally. Drain.
- Add taco sauce and dry ingredients. Mix well. Cook an additional 2 minutes.
- Divide beans and spread evenly over each tortilla. Spoon ground meat mixture down center of each tortilla. Sprinkle each with each. Fold sides of each tortilla toward center; fold up ends. Place seam side down, in ungreased 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Brush each chimichanga with margarine.
