    I made them with shredded chicken instead of ground beef. Also took another reviewer's advice and topped with cheese for the last 3 minutes of baking. I served with shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, and sour cream on the side. They were delicious! I really like what happened with the tortilla, it was an excellent texture and held everything together beautifully. This will definitely go into my bag of tricks to make again! Thanks!

    I used this recipe as inspiration for my Cheeseburger Chimichanga recipe which was an instant hit at my house.<br/><br/>All of your favorite burger toppings and ground beef spiked with mustard and ketchup are rolled into a flour tortilla and baked until crisp. These crispy Cheeseburger Chimichangas are then placed on a bed of shredded lettuce and cheese before being drizzled with mayonnaise. Your eyes will think Mexican food but the taste is all-American!
