Tuesday's Dinner Recipe! (On Wednesday) :)

  • No Fry Chimichangas:
  • Ingredients:
  • 1 pound shredded beef/ pork or BBQ beef/ pork
  • 1 16-ounce can re-fried beans
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion 
  • 3 8-ounce can tomato sauce, divided
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 12 large flour tortillas, warmed
  • 1 4-ounce can chopped green chilies
  • 1 4-ounce can chopped jalapeno peppers
  • 1/4 cup oil in a spritzer bottle (or) nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) (6 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese 

  • Heat oven to 350 degrees
  • FYI: You can use beef chuck roast and shred with a fork, but that is very time consuming and dirties one more dish. So I prefer to use beef/ pork already shredded from the frozen section at Sams. I get the BBQ pork and it comes in a disposable baking dish. Just put it in the fridge overnight the day before you want to use it and you're good to go.
  1. Stir in all your ingredients(save the tortillas and cheese) with your meat.
  2. Warm tortillas. Place a small handful of cheese and a good spoonful of ingredients in the middle of a tortilla. Be sure to use a slotted spoon and let most the juice drain out before adding it to the tortilla to prevent sogginess.
  3. Fold the bottom, right, and left sides in toward the middle and roll over to close completely. Line all your little rolls up in a baking dish. Spray tops with butter or olive oil. 
  4. Cover with foil and bake on middle rack for about 10 min. Uncover and continue to bake until tops are lightly browned. (5-10min.) If you prefer, you can turn them over and brown both sides.
