Expert Tips

A specialty of Sonora, Mexico, chimichangas are fried burritos served with salsa, guacamole sour cream and shredded cheese. In our version, the chimichangas are baked.

Beans are an excellent source of soluble fiber that may help to lower cholesterol.

Prepare the meat mixture; cover and refrigerate it for up to one day.

In addition to serving these chimichangas with shredded lettuce and chopped tomatoes, offer sour cream, guacamole and Spanish rice.
