Great recipe! Easy to fix and everyone really enjoyed them, including the kids! I made them exactly as the recipe stated, but used less than one chipotle, since my son likes it a bit more mild. The third time I used some crumbled, cooked sausage instead of the chicken and it turned out just as good! The coleslaw blend was a nice touch and added some good and interesting texture. These are on my regular line up. Thanks for sharing a great recipe!

What a great dinner! The chimichangas ended up being puffy and crunchy and I would sneak more coleslaw in there next time as you can't even detect it. We enjoyed this with a simple salad and sour cream and picante sauce. I will absolutely make this dish again. Made for my adopted chef for Spring PAC 2013.

Good chimichangas, but did not care for the cabbage in this. I think the coleslw blend would work with a tad less, and a tad more cheese. Please see my rating system. The kids enjoyed these though, will adjust and makeagain. Good recipe. Made for PRMR tag.

These were good and easy to make. I followed the recipe as written other then I didn't add the chipotle chiles as I don't like real spicey things. I also used chicken I had frozen instead of deli chicken.

These were very good. I left the cabbage out of DH's and put it in mine. I thought it was good, but I would probably leave it out next time. I also kept out the chiptole, DH and I taste tested them before adding and both of us felt they were way too hot for us. I made refried beans to round out the menu. Thanks for posting such a good recipe.

We liked these chimichangas but didn't love them. I think it might have been the taste/texture of the cabbage coleslaw blend that we weren't overly crazy about. I like the idea of baking, rather than frying them. Thanks for posting the recipe, but I think I'll look for another chimichanga recipe that suits our tastes better.

These are excellent! I followed the recipe exactly - except I skipped the cabbage and used a little less cheese. Very good flavor! I will make these again. Thanks rickoholic83 for posting.
