Green Chili Chimichangas

READY IN: 30mins

Beef and green chilies mixed with beef gravy. Can be fried for chimichangas or rolled in warm tortilla for green chili burrito. It is simple and good. I usually don't measure, so I'm guessing on amounts. Feel free to use less or more of something.

We really enjoyed this. I had leftover roast beef and gravy from another recipe, and this was an easy and tasty way to use up the leftovers. I probably used a little less gravy than the amount in a 10 ounce jar. I also added hot taco sauce (La Victoria Salsa Brava) instead of the suggested hot salsa.
