This Mexican inspired dish is my own creation and is a household favorite! We MUST have this dish at least once a week. Be warned, it's extremely tasty and addictive. We always serve this with Basic Mexican Rice Basic Mexican Rice. I suggest adding a tsp of your favorite hot sauce if you like your filling to pack a little more heat.

A really fun recipe to try out! I also messed with the spices & got a pretty taste meat mix; I added some chopped spinach & diced zucchini to add nutrition. I admit I chickened out with cooking this like a chimichanga; instead I cooked it on my stovetop like a folded-over quesadilla!! I topped the meat with reduced fat mozzarella & red onions. I served it with some salsa & fat free sour cream. It was yummy, but a tad try so I may try adding a little taco sauce into the meat mix. Thanks so much for sharing this!!

Very tasty! I added black beans, green chilies, and diced jalapeños, to the meat mixture and it turned out very good. Thanks for the great recipe!

Very tasty, very easy recipe! I added less seasonings at the filling at first but before rolling the tortillas I added the rest. I also put at the filling before frying some tomato at the half of them. I topped with cheddar and greek yogurt instead of sour cream. The result was an easy, tasty dinner. Thanks Cynna. Made it for ZWT3.
