Crispy Chimichangas

Mmmm...I could eat these forever if they weren't so filling. Didn't use a recipe for this just created it as I went along. I love the crispy, flaky outer layer and then the gooey, cheesy center. This is so great with a side of fresh guacamole, pineapple peach salsa, and sour cream. I also created my own dressing. Here is the link to Fiesta Dressing.

Crispy Chimichangas
  • 6 large tortillas (burrito size)
  • 1 lb taco seasoned ground beef
  • 1/2 cup diced onions
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 can refried beans
  • 1 can pinto beans
  • 1-2 cups oil
Heat a skillet and cook ground beef, cilantro and onions in taco seasoning. Spread refried beans on a tortilla. Spoon beef mixture, pinto beans, 1 Tbsp tomatoes and 1/4 cup cheddar cheese onto each tortilla. Fold like a burrito tucking all sides in. Heat a skillet to medium high and pour oil in. Fry burritos until golden crisp on each side (about 2 minutes per side). Serve right away with favorite toppings and a side salad.
