Chimichangas usually are deep-fried burritos. My version gets lovin’ from the oven. Black beans and corn make it meatless and a cool way to use up leftover rice. —Kimberly Hammond, Kingwood, Texas

"I skipped the cilantro and green onions, since I didn't have any, and added garlic powder instead. Incredibly easy to put together and we really liked it. My toddler made a huge mess of it but he still ate it! Served it with fresh salsa. So good! I would definitely make this again."

"This turned out great! I was worried about it being bland, but the cilantro and green onions gave it all the flavor it needed. The family liked it a lot!"
