Smoked Beef and Black Bean Chimichangas

Lynne Hawkins


These chimichangas combine savory Mexican flavors; smoked beef, salsa verde, cheese, and chilies! It's a combo that can't be beat! You can add your choice of toppings; guacamole, sour cream, or is you're like my family - more cheese! My family is also used to tomato based salsa. They were surprised to find they like salsa verde! This recipe is a keeper in this house!
