cinnamon is a surprising ingredient, but it
really makes the dish!
recipe was wonderful. We are vegetarians so we
substituted Morningstar Farms Crumbles for the
chicken and it was a big hit! Thanks!
delicious. I added a little butter melted in the
baking dish with the olive oil.
recipe is great and low on fat. Try it with
very good! I would use half the cinnamon and
increase the cumin. I also sprayed Pam cooking
spray on the bottom of the pan and on top of the
chimichangas, less fat than olive oil and they
the first recipe I have used from your site and
it was absolutely wonderful! I made the recipe as
written and I wouldn't change a thing. I topped
it with my husband's homemade salsa and it made a
terrific meal. I was even happy that the leftover
chimichanga from last night was just as good when
I warmed it in the oven today for lunch. This
will definitely be a family favorite!
Very easy with left over
chicken. I was pleasantly surprised and so was my family. From a
working mom with 2 teenage boys.
i am a disaster in the
kitchen (newlywed) but i got this one right! it was delicious and
easy enough for even me. i added lowfat shredded cheddar on top
while still hot and it was fabulous!!
I made these last night
and liked everything, except for the cinnamon. I will definitely
leave that out next time. I have tried many other recipes and have
never been dissapointed!
I thought the
Chimichangas were delicious and very easy to make. The only problem
I had was the salsa
recipe. The recipe for salsa was delicious but it did not make
enough for the chimmis, it really needed to be doubled. Other than
that this recipe will become a family favorite for my family.
tried this recipe .it was
I made these for a late
lunc today and my children and husband loved it. We also had some
Guacamole on the side..Yummy. Thanks bunches!!
long time looker, first
time trying a recipe - this recipe is easy, fun and taste awesome! I
used canned roast beef in the place of chicken. I so enjoyed cooking
something new for my Husband and two teenage boys and was thrilled
when they asked for seconds! I'll be trying your
honey BBQ chicken
wings recipe tonight. Thanks for making cooking something other
than a chore - please keep those recipes coming!!
Made this recipe last
night for company. (Brave don't you think since I'd never made it
before!) Anyway, it was a big hit. I plated it just like at a
spanish rice, pico de gallo, sour cream,
guacamole and a
scoop of sweet corn
cake. Every cleaned their plates! I made the recipe exactly as
stated. The only thing I might change is the cinnamon. Not sure I
liked it in there. But this recipe gets a big THUMBS UP!!!

chimichangas before.. so i really dont have anything to compare it
with... but my huby lovee it as well as me! i am soo glad i found
this web site, cause i love all this healthy idas! thanks

tortilla shells. Yummmmm.
