KID NOTE: The kids loved this meal!
VEGETARIAN TIP: Double the bean recipe and cook some brown rice. Stuff chimichangas with rice and beans instead of meat. Add seasoning to the sauteed onions and jalapeno.
GLUTEN FREE MODIFICATIONS: Use corn tortillas and chicken stock instead of beer.
Kids liked it, husband loved it. Took about 45 minutes from start to finish. Easy clean-up..
My boyfriend thought this was the best thing I had ever made! Thank you for making me amazing in his eyes! 😉
I love that!!! 😉
I only left mine in the oven for the first 8 minutes – they were almost burned by then!
I used ground beef because grocery was out of ground chicken. It was a very good substitution.
I used ground turkey as I can never find ground chicken and it was great. I guarantee that I will make this one again. So easy and so good!
This was so good!! I think the cinnamon in there made it!
Hubby and I loved the beans – will double that part of the recipe next time I make it! That was an easy way to dress up canned beans. The chimichangas were really crispy and good too.
I loved these. Better than the local restaurant chimichangas. Loved the beans too.
Third night in a row of HUGE hits! You are making me look like a genius! This was awesome. My 2-year-old even ate it! Thanks for all you do!
I used the chicken recipe to make tacos instead of chimichangas since I didn’t have big enough tortiallas to fold and roll. It was delicious. The beans were yummy as well. I used pepper bacon, but I wish I had browned the bacon so it’d be crispy in the beans. This one is a keeper.
This was a great meal! I love chimichangas, and this baked version is so easy and tasty. I doubled the beans and added cilantro and my husband ate them up! Only change I may do next time is to cook the bacon first to get it more done. Thanks Stacey!
Big hit all around! The whole family loved this meal. Even my picky 3 year old.
We can’t buy Rotel in Canada. Any suggestions to a substitute?
Good to know. Thanks!! Use a can of petite diced tomatoes and a 4oz can of chopped green chiles. 😉
OK – family loved it. I had to substitute ground turkey, no problem. I also used a poblano pepper instead of jalapeno (my fam doesn’t like spice and I had one fresh from farm.) I used smaller (but fresh made) tortillas from Whole Food and rolled, not folded, still worked well! I was really worried on this one! One recommendation – cook bacon night before to save time.
the beans were my favorite part! My family loved it.
My family loved this! One of the best recipes I have made. In the future, to save time I will make the beans the night before.
Wow! This was so good. Even my 7 year old daughter loved it. It was pretty spicy though, next time I might omit the jalapeno. My daughter kept saying, while fanning her mouth, “So spicy! But so good!” The cinnamon made me think these would be a fun traditional Christmastime meal, but also great any time of year.
