This is my twist on a traditional Taco/Burrito/Empanada/Chimichanga. They are basically burritos, but instead of using a flour tortilla, I use egg roll wrappers. It gives them a nice crunch and a different flavor than a traditional flour tortilla.
Step 1: Ingredients
There's really only a few key ingredients, and you can obviously tweak the ingredients around if you like, but here's what I use.
-1 lb. Ground Beef (lean is better. I used 90/10 for this batch)
-1 can prepared refried beans
-1 package Egg Roll Wraps, any brand...just make sure you get the big ones, the won ton wrappers are too small
-1 package Shredded Mexican Cheese blend (again, feel free to use any kind of cheese either
pre shredded or not. Shredded is just more convenient)
-1 can El Pato Salsa de Chile Fresco (this is what I use for the Taco meat, but any variety of taco mix will work. Some places don't carry this so use whatever taco mix you like!)
-Vegetable Oil (How much oil you need depends on the type of pan you use. A deep fryer would work great, as does a wok. I just used a regular pan this time)
-Salsa (any variety)
-Spices to taste (Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder, Cumin...I just use these to season the meat a bit while it is browning. Just don't overpower your taco mix/sauce)
