DIRECTIONS

  • Heat a skillet over medium low heat and add half the oil; saute onions until softened, but not browned, about 5 minutes.
  • Add chile and garlic; stir about 1 minute.
  • Add refried beans and water; stir and chop to fully combine, then turn off heat.
  • Heat tortillas, one at a time, over medium low heat just to soften, about 15 seconds per side.
  • Spoon about 2 heaping tablespoons of beans and 2 heaping tablespoons cheese; fold by bringing the side closest to you about halfway up.
  • Fold in the sides, then continue rolling; flatten slightly with your hand.
  • Heat remaining oil in a skillet over medium low heat; brown chimichangas, in batches, about 3 to 4 minutes per side.
  • Serve with pico de gallo, sour cream, and shredded cheese, or whatever you choose.
