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.
This was delicious. I made a couple of changes (had to use what was in the pantry). Instead of tomato sauce, I blended up a can of tomatoes. I added some salsa to the meat mixture. I used a whole onion instead of measuring out 1/2 cup. Also, I substituted whole wheat tortillas for regular white flour tortillas, and used olive oil instead of butter. After they were done baking to a crisp, I sprinkled medium cheddar cheese over the chimichangas and baked them for another three-five minutes (until the cheese was bubbling). Then I spooned the sauce over the top. Served with a green salad. It was simple to make, and a hit! They were VERY filling. Next time I will use the suggestion to freeze some of the chimichangas. Thanks for a super simple & tasty recipe! I will make this again.
