Baked Beef and Bean Chimichanga


We are Mexican food lovers. We have it almost weekly. Which unfortunately means that I am always looking for variety. My eldest son is a taco lover and the middle is a quesadilla lover. My husband loves enchiladas and I love just a little bit of everything. Chimichangas aren't a regular in our menu. Mostly because I used to deep fry these babies. And Im not going to lie sometimes I still do. But for this time I baked them. Stuffed these tortillas rolled them up and baked them. Topped them with some green enchilada sauce, cheese, sour cream, and garnish then enjoy! 


You can also add the enchilada sauce inside the chimichanga before you roll it up. But since my younger son doesn't love any type of "sauce" I decided to keep it out this time. Next time ill place it in their too and then put his on one of the edges so I know which one is his!
