This is a great tasting recipe and so easy that even my daughter doesn't complain when I ask her to make it.

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.
