    Mardimus's Note:

    Chicken seasoned in chipotle adobe and other herbs, with Basamati lime cilantro rice, yellow corn and black beans cooked in lemon juice and cilantro. All stuffed into a tortilla shell with cheese and sour cream, then grilled into a chimichanga. I have also used turkey meat as well as grilled flank steak and its all fun to play with.

      Delicious! The flavor of the chicken and the avocado were my favorite. This chimichanga is by far the most fresh and flavorful chimichanga I've ever had. It basically ruins all restaurant chimichangas forever.
