Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
I have made this recipe twice now. Once with potato and once with a 14oz can of black beans rinsed and drained. I use olive oil not bacon fat. I did render the fat from the left over tri-tip in the oil and then removed it to the trash. Patricia G. just figure on a cup of onion and just use a potato about the size of a 14oz can. This is one of those recipes you can easily change to your tastes. I also put the cheese in the tortillas first then the filling. Use bamboo skewers to hold the tortillas closed. Just cut a few inches off.
I saw this recipe in the most recent magazine and would like to try it. I'm not much of a cook and I wish recipes would give guidance in cup sizes. What's a medium onion? 1/2 cup? 1 cup? Same on the large potato. Can anybody offer suggestions? THANKS
Looks so good I will try. How can I get this recipe
Will try these soon. I ate the original chimichanga at a small hole in the wall café in Tucson many, many years ago when I was going to school. They did originate there in that café. Eaten many since but NEVER found one that equaled the original. Don't remember any potatoes but will give it a try and let you know.
Can this be made in a air fryer?
Born & raised in Phoenix, Arizona these are pretty spot on. What I leave out are the potatoes because they are a filler & I would rather have more meat. That is my personal preference. There are many Mexican food restaurants that use potatoes or rice in their burro's/burrito's. Not sure how Marvin's tomatoes turned into tomato soup unless he cooked them for quite some time and even then...... Great easy recipe!
Lovely idea and I’m doing them in my Air Fryer! My daughter loves burritos so I’m going to try to continue to introduce her to more Mexican dishes. I grew up near Glendale with the Camelback Mountains in view. I’ll eat this and remember Arizona sunsets!! Thank you!
My kids really liked these. When I say really liked these, out of the 12 there was not a crumb left. I added the tomatoes but did not get tomato soup as one reviewer did. They dices stayed that way, just a bit softer as you would expect from any cooked food. I used one package of tortillas but still had extra filling that we can add to a salad tomorrow or just let our imagination go wild. Thank you so much for this recipe.
Hey folks...be kind. There’s enough negativity in this world, just be kind and thoughtful ??
Marvin get with the program. Learn how to cook. How you got tomato soup is beyond me. Try it again. These are very good.
