Some friends of ours made these for a party at their house, and they were fantastic. Particularly delicious with chile con queso on top. These are also fantastic from the fridge the next day; just grab one, heat it up, and eat it like a burrito!

Easy and delicious, we love chimichangas and particularly loved these! Their tasty filling combines so well with the nice soft crunch of a pan-fried tortilla wrapper. They do refrigerate very well for future lunches and, no doubt, they would freeze just as well. Thanks ~ I'll definitely be making your chimichangas again!
