    Heydarl's Note:

    I don't fry food, especially deep fry, but wanted to try cooking chimichangas recently. With leftover barbequed chicken in the fridge, I searched for inspiration & found it it my Sunset Mexican Cook Book. I combined their Oven-Fried Chimichanga & Vegetable Burrito recipes & we loved the result.

      These are so Yummy! I have been on a huge vegetable kick I saw this and was so excited. My husband was a little unsure when I told him what all was in it but in the end he loved it as well. I sometimes will saute the bell peppers with a small amount of olive oil and spoonful of sugar yum. I change the vegetable up depending on what we have in the house.

      This is different from other chimichangas as it had so much veggies. No complaints as they're very good. I even like the corn in it. As suggested, served it with Aztec Guacamole, sour cream and jalapenos. Delicious dinner! Thanks! Made for ZWT5. Zaar Chow Hounds.

      Wow. I was really expecting this to be a little heathy tasting for me with all those vegetables, but I was trying to git rid of a zucchini and a red pepper. As is turned out it's incredibly delicious! I wouldn't change a thing, and I ALWAYS change something! Thanks for sharing this keeper.
