      What an excellant combination of flavors! These were very tasty. I used the small flour tortillas, and made about 40 appetizer-size pieces.. I will definately be making them again, but next time will try adding some chopped jalapenos to the filling.. Thanks, grandma!

      When I saw tomatoe soup as an ingredient I had to try it. My chili calls for a can of tomatoe soup which mellows it and makes a wonderful flavor.It does the same for these Chimi's.I made these for the grandkids Saturday.We all enjoyed them. Delicious! I used turkey. Highly recommend this recipe.
