      We loved these! I sprinkled the chicken with Adobo seasoning, dried cilantro, and a touch more cumin before cooking. I also used colby jack cheese, they were fantastic. This will be a favorite from now on.

      The gooey uncooked crescent roll in the center of the chimichanga I found to be less than appealing. The flavor was great but the texture of raw dough with melted cheese was a bit creepy. I baked them the full time plus an extra five for the cheese. They appeared done with a nice golden crust but the dough on the inside was raw. If I were to make them again I would roll them as instructed but cut them like cinnamon rolls and bake them in a pan as I would rolls. This way the centers would get done and be pretty served on a bed of lettuce drizzled with sour cream.

      I made one big one by laying out one can of cresents on the cookie sheet. Then laying the ingrediants over this and then placing the other can on top. This was a simple dish made even simpler by using some leftover grilled chicken...yum!
