If I could give these a 5 plus I would. Wonderful! My husband loved these! Much better than reg tacos. I made Refried Beans by DiB's instead of buying the canned stuff. Will be making again thats for sure! Thank you for sharing.
These tasted okay but could have used a little more kick. If making again, I will add more seasonings and less corn (seemed to add too much sweetness).
Loved this recipe! Quick and easy. Brushing each chimichanga with butter and baking them all at once was really nice. The chimichangas came out with just the right amount of crunch on the tortillas. I adjusted the amount of taco sauce and substituted ketchup. I have small kids & I didn't want to make the dish too spicy for them. Next time I would sub tomato sauce and add a few dashes of hot sauce (like Tabasco or Cholula). The leftovers I packaged in separate ziplock bags and froze. They reheated in the microwave very well and the flavor was still great. Definitely will use this recipe again!
