Active Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Serves: 4 servings


Beef Chimichangas


  • In large skillet, cook and crumble beef and onions until browned; drain. In medium microwaveable bowl, combine salsa Verde, 2 teaspoons cumin and ½ teaspoon chili powder.
  • Stir 1 cup Verde sauce, remaining cumin, remaining chili powder and salt into beef. Place ¼ of beef mixture on each tortilla; roll up tortillas, burrito style, securing with toothpicks.
  • In large skillet with high sides, heat oil over high heat. When a small piece of tortilla sizzles immediately on contact, carefully place chimichangas into oil; fry, turning frequently, until golden brown (about 2-3 minutes).
  • Remove from oil with a slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Place on platter.
  • Meanwhile, add queso to remaining Verde sauce; warm in microwave; pour over chimichangas. Garnish with tomatoes, onions and sour cream, if desired.
