This dish is one of my personal favorites. It takes a little time and effort, but it is worth it.
If you like Mexican food this is a must try!

We loved the filling in this recipe and plan to try it in tacos and on nachos as well! The chimis came out perfectly crisp. And while we had a tough time keeping them closed with toothpicks while frying, a little bit of butcher's twine did the trick just fine. Who's ready for a fiesta?! The Test Kitchen
