Chicken Chimichangas

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Sherri35

My family really likes these. Sometimes I will triple the recipe and put away lots of them in the freezer for quick meals later. You can vary the ingredients using different cheese or ground beef, etc. It makes about 8-10 chimichangas.

This was great! I used black beans rather than refried, to make it a bit healthier, and it went over wonderful! I doubled it, put it in the freezer, and we had it last week for dinner. I only reheated it for 30 minutes (because I had defrosted them) and it was great. Fast easy recipe. Thanks!
