    AuntMare's Note:

    A good, simple alternative to deep-frying. I think I got this from OAM Cookbook years ago. Make sure the tortillas are room temperature or they will crack when you roll them. You can microwave the whole package for about 20 seconds to speed things up.

      Great chimichangas!! I followed the instructions as written. I baked 4 and froze the rest. I didn't make the sauce but will next time. I'm sure I didn't roll them right this time but after seeing the photo I'll do better. The flavor was perfect. We enjoyed these as part of a mexican meal with beans and rice. Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC 2011.

      These were great! Quick to make and everyone loved then. The only thing I changed was using black beans rather than the refried beans. We will be making them again

      What a fantastically easy and delicious recipe! I made this pretty much exactly to recipe, and it was perfectly spicy for me. I baked some fresh and froze some. When I thawed and baked those, they were just as good as the fresh chimichangas. I was very pleasantly surprised! I actually only made 6, I froze the filling from the other 4 for the next time I make tacos, I think it will work wonderfully. Thank you for a fantastic, easy, OAMC recipe.
