“Found this recipe on USA Weekend. It sounds really good so I am putting it here for safe keeping.”
8 Chimichanagas

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pour the cream of chicken soup into a blender along with the green chilies, jalapeno pepper and lime juice. Puree until smooth then pour into a saucepan and warm over medium-low heat.
  2. Next, in a large bowl, mash together the cream cheese, Monterey Jack cheese and taco seasoning until well blended. Stir into the chicken. Evenly divide mixture among the 8 tortillas, placing filling in center of tortilla. Fold top down, fold bottom up, then roll up sides to make a square packet.
  3. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Fry 4 chimichangas at a time, seam side down, until golden brown, about 90 seconds; flip with tongs and fry other side an additional 90 seconds. Drain on a plate lined with paper towels.
  4. To serve, place a chimichanga on a plate, and ladle the warm pepper sauce over top. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese and green onions. Finish with a dollop of sour cream.
