Picture of Easy Chimichangas Recipe
Chimichangas are one of the most brilliant inventions in the world of food, as far as I am concerned.  You can make them with chicken, beef, pork, beans, veggies, anything you want.  Wrap them up in tortillas with cheese, and fry them.  Brilliant, right?

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.

Oh these sound and look amazing. I wonder if corn tortillas would work as well? Or could I wrap them like tamales? I am going try these. Thank you. I am not a fan of the huge one ingredient chimis either.

Yum. Any tips on how to keep the tortillas from puffing up and falling apart when cooking?
