    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    The filling for these chimichangas is delicious! Adjust all seasonings to suit taste, I add in 2-3 jalapeno peppers, seeded and finely chopped in with the ground beef mixture for extra flavor and heat but that is only optional. The amounts listed are enough for 6 chimichangas you can double the complete recipe, but keep the garlic amount no more than 2 tablespoons. These are really good!

      This was very good. My whole family liked this. The only thing I did differently was to bake the chimichangas at 350 for 20 minutes. I couldn't bring myself to fry them, so I sprayed them with a little olive oil and put them in the oven. Sooo yummy. For me there was way more filling than we needed. I got 9 little chimichangas and had half the filling left; I think I needed bigger tortillas. Great for tacos tomorrow!
