DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven 400°.
  • Sauté onions, garlic and jalapeños until onions are soft.
  • Add meat, brown and season; drain.
  • Set aside in warm place.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine Velveeta cheese, milk (if using cheese and milk), soup, canned diced tomatoes and green chiles; mix well.
  • Microwave on high for 6 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes until melted.
  • Spray 9x13-inch baking dish with Pam.
  • Warm each tortilla in microwave for 30 seconds or so (makes them easier to work with).
  • Place a tortilla on plate then add another tortilla on top of it, lapping it half way, as to make the tortilla longer.
  • Spoon beef in middle of tortillas, roll and place seam side down, in baking dish; continue until mixture is done (I make 4 large).
  • Pour a portion of sauce over tortillas; place in oven for 10 minutes (just to warm).
  • Remove from oven and place a dollop of sour cream and guacamole on each individual chimi.
  • Garnish with lettuce and tomato.
  • You can also prepare on individual plates.
  • Just place chimi on plate pour cheese sauce over it and place in microwave for a couple of minutes to warm.
  • Dollop and garnish.
  • I use the remainder of cheese sauce to mix with my salsa.
  • Makes a good queso (cheese dip).
