I'm not a fan of the huge one-ingredient only chimis I get at some restaurants, so I wanted to make my own spin on this:
Chibi Chicken Chimichangas
chibi meaning little!
Using small tortillas and a roast chicken from the shop, I added in all my favorite ingredients and had dinner on the table in a flash. You can modify this recipe to include (or exclude) just about anything! And they're fried!
So you know it's good*.
*good tasting. not good for you.
Step 1: Ingredients
- flour tortillas
- 1/2 pre-cooked rotisserie chicken, shredded
- 1 ear fresh corn, kernels cut from cob
- 2 small sweet peppers, chopped
- 1/2 medium onion, chopped
- 1 avocado, chopped
- 1 cup shredded cheese
- 1/2 cup salsa
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- corn oil for frying
Step 2: Prep
Saute your onions for about 5 minutes.
Add peppers and corn and cook until just softened.
Add to chicken, avocado, and cheese in a bowl and stir to mix.
Spoon into tortillas and fold like a burrito.
Step 3: Fry
Using tongs or spatula, place burritos into oil, flap side down.
Let brown for about 2-3 minutes (everything inside is already cooked, so you're just frying up the tortilla), and flip.
When tortillas are golden brown, remove from oil and drain on rack or paper towels.
Serve with salsa and sour cream (I mixed mine together!). Enjoy!
