Mini Beef Chimichangas Recipe

Mini Beef Chimichangas Recipe

I made these the first time with some leftover roast meat. I wanted to jazz up the leftovers and here is what transpired! My husband and I love these little, golden, crisp chimis! We make them for parties all the time. This is excellent served with guacamole, or alone!—
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Cook: 5 min./batch YIELD:20 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded pepper Jack cheese
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 cups shredded cooked roast beef
  • 1 package (16 ounces) egg roll wrappers
  • Oil for deep-fat frying
  • Guacamole, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the first nine ingredients. Stir in cooked beef.
  • 2. Place 1/4 cup filling in the center of one egg roll wrapper. (Keep remaining wrappers covered with a damp paper towel until ready to use.) Fold bottom corner over filling. Fold sides toward center over filling. Moisten remaining corner with water; roll up tightly to seal. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling.
