1 lb. Cooked Beef, Pork, or Chicken
1 jar Salsa (16 oz.)
1 can Refried Beans (16 oz.)
1 can Diced Green Chilies (4 oz.)
1 pkg. Taco Seasoning
16 Flour Tortilla (8 inch)
16 oz. pkg. Montery Jack of Cheddar Cheese
Cooking oil (optional)
Cut cheese into sixteen 5 x 1/2 inch sticks. Shred meat (about 3 cups). In a large skilled, combine meat, salsa, beans, undrained chilies and taco seasoning mix. Cook and stir over medium heat until heated through. In another skillet, heat tortillas one at a time, over medium-low heat about 30 seconds per side. For each chimichanga, place 1/3 cup meat mixture on tortilla near one edge. Top with a cheese stick and fold in sides. Roll up, starting with cheese side. Place in a a casserole dish and bake at 350 for 15 minutes.
As you can see from the pictures I used ground beef and shredded cheese. The instructions didn’t say to cover the dish but I was afraid the tortillas would dry out so I covered it with foil. These were delicious! I actually ate them for dinner one night and then for lunch the following two days. This would be a great dish to serve on Super Bowl Sunday if you are expecting a crowd.
