Until I tried this recipe I had never been able to replicate the flavors of the restaurant chimichangas I love so much! This super simple dish packs a terrific flavor punch and are darn cute on the plate too. We think they would also be good with cumin in place of the oregano... your choice! Give 'em a try for your next fiesta! The Test Kitchen
