Make traditional Mexican recipes in the comforts of your own home. Stuffed with cheese and ground beef, these magnificent Beef Chimichangas are just like the ones you get at the restaurant. Crispy and filing, you'll love 'em.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef

I love chimichangas and I always order them when we are at a Mexican restaurant. I guess I never realized that you could make them at home. I'll definitely be trying this recipe. My husband will love that there are no beans involved. I think this would be tasty with chicken, pork or steak as the main meat. I have ordered ones called fajita chimichangas as well which has the steak, onions, and pepper all included. Delish!
