Reviews for Cheesy Chimichangas
"Quick, delicious, and lovely. Used ground turkey and added 2/3 package of taco seasoning. Even my kids liked it which is saying a lot! Yummy!!!"
"These chimichangas are very good. The only change I made was to add a little taco sauce and taco seasoning to the ground beef mixture. (also used half ground turkey and half ground beef) I will definitely make these again. Thanks for a great recipe!"
"Chimichangas are usually deep fried; these taste great baked."
