Baked Chimichanga Salad
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 5 min.
We all loved the filling. I did not have time to make the salsa and guac, but the filling was yummy. I used purchased green salso. I mixed a bit in with the filling and then heated the rest on the stove so folks could use it on top of the chimi. Great meal.
My family really enjoyed this. I was a bit taken aback by the name when I first saw this recipe, but fortunately it does not match the picture that was originally in my head. It's just a really good baked chimichanga, cooled slightly, then placed on a cool green salad. It was so refreshing to try these chimichangas baked. The fried ones can be tasty, but they often leave me with a little guilt and regret after I eat them so it's great to have the part you like and skip the part you don't!
