We love Mexican Food. This is a cross between A Burrito and a Chimichanga, BUT NO Deep-frying! Loved it when I ran across this some time ago.

How To Make chimichito!

  • 1
    Heat oven to 400F In a bowl combine Chicken, salsa and chilies.

    Heat the tortillas just a little in a dry skillet to make them pliable. Spoon the mixture on the tortillas. Roll them up Burrito style. Bottom over the mixture, sides in and then roll away from you.

    While they are baking heat your enchilada sauce either in a small pot on the stove or in the microwave. When serving place some warm sauce on a plate, lay a chimichito on top, add a spoon of sour cream, cheese and some cilantro. Enjoy! Note: Sometimes I also add cheese to the filling, like mine! :-)
