Oh goodness - the RAVES I got when I decided to do Mexican night starring these chimichangas. Everyone loved these - next time I'll make a double batch. For the four people who were eating, the six chimichangas this made just wasn't enough. I paired it up with Sweet Corn Tomalito and refried beans. WONDERFUL! This is going in my permanent recipe collection.
These were very very GOOD they were so easy to make and my family loved it. I did add some shredded cheddar cheese ontop for the last few minutes of baking. I will keep this recipe on file THANKS for sharing this one with us. :)
OK, I fudged on this great recipe, but I had to tell you how wonderful it was! I made JoAnn's Italian Beef (Italian Beef) recipe the other day and still had a bunch of beef leftover. So I made the chimichangas with that instead of the ground beef. I omitted the salt, but followed the rest of the recipe. I used mild Pace Picante sauce and vidalia onions. Since I'm on the Sugar Busters program I used whole wheat flour tortillas. Next time I'll watch them in the oven a little more closely as I seriously browned the tops. But this chimichanga recipe could put a serious hurtin' on local Mexican restaurants. Muy bueno!
I made this last night and found it to be very tasty and easy to make as well as to clean up. This one I will keep and pass along to my friends.
What a great recipe! I was desperate for something to make tonight and found this. My kids liked it which is always a reason to give a recipe 5 stars! Instead of margarine I brushed the tortillas lightly with olive oil and they browned nicely. This would be a a good thing to make for a crowd, because you can bake a bunch at a time...maybe slice into appetizer-size portions and serve with several dips.
Had guests over this evening and this was a huge hit with everyone! Very tasty and so easy to make. I doubled the recipe and served it with refried beans. This is a dish I will be making over and over again. :-)
This was a great meal! Being baked was a nice change from our usual soft tacos. I added some cheese to the meat mixture and it turned out great. Both my husband and I loved it and we will be having this again!!
You are awesome!! I'm just starting this whole cooking thing and it turned out great!! Very simple,very quick.Thanks!
To: Mysterygirl All I can say is "Super Chimi's"!!! They are excellent. I just put 4 together as there are only two of us here, and they disappeared promptly! Saved the leftover filling for another night. I added Paula's Easy Homemade Salsa to the filling and then topped the chimi's when I served them. Just yummie. Thanks for sharing. Those puppies deserve 5 stars! Sincerely, Laudee
I used ground pork instead of beef and salsa instead of the sauce, and I can only say WOW! These are great!
