    Mardimus's Note:

    These chimis bake up or fry delightfully crisp with a hearty, flavorful filling that can be as spicy or as mild as you like. The great thing about a meal like this is you can adapt it in so many ways – make it vegetarian, use a different type of meat or variety of beans, add your favorite herbs, extra cheese.

    1. 1
      1. In a 2 cup liquid measuring cup, whisk broth and pepper. Mix 1/2 cup of this mixture, rice, and 1/4t salt in a bowl. Cover and microwave until liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, pat chicken dry and season with salt and pepper.
    2. 2
      2. In a Dutch oven, heat 1T oil over medium high heat until just smoking. Cook onion until softened, about 5 minutes, then add garlic, chili powder, and cumin and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add remaining chipotle broth, partially cooked rice, and bring to a boil.
    3. 3
      3. Reduce heat to medium low, add chicken, cover, and cook until chicken's internal temperature is 160 degrees and rice is tender, about 15 minutes, flipping chicken about halfway through. Remove chicken to a cutting board to rest for 5-10 minutes, then cut into 1/2 inch pieces and return to rice mixture, adding cheddar and cilantro, all in a large bowl. Wash the pot.

      4. Whisk flour and water in a small bowl. Microwave tortillas, covered, on a plate, about 1 minute. Divide chicken mixture into 4. Working with one tortilla at a time, place 1/4 of the chicken mixture in the center. Brush edges of tortilla with flour paste, then wrap top and bottom of tortilla tightly over filling (fold side toward center, then fold in the sides--you might want to repaste the last pieces).
    5. 5
      5. Heat remaining 3c oil in Dutch oven over medium high heat until 325 degrees. Place 2 chimis, seam down, in oil, and fry until deep golden brown, about 2 minutes a side. Monitor your oil temperature, keeping it between 300 and 325 degrees. Drain on a wire rack set inside a rimmed baking sheet. Repeat with remaining chimis.
