Recipe of the Week: Make-ahead Chimichangas
This is for 16 servings.
2.5 c cooked ground beef (I used ground turkey)
16 oz salsa (I used Jeremy's homemade!)
16 oz refried beans (made these too)
1 taco seasoning envelope
16 8" flour tortillas
4 c shredded cheddar
In pan combine cooked meat, salsa, beans and taco seasoning. Cook and stir over medium heat until heated through. Heat a non-stick skillet on medium low and spray with cooking spray. One at a time put the tortillas in the skillet, heating for about 30 seconds on each side. Remove from pan. Put 1/2 c meat mixture and top with cheese. Fold in the sides and roll it up.
I put each chimchanga in a sandwich bag and then placed all the bags in a big freezer bag.
Remove the needed amount of chimichangas from the freezer. Remove plastic wrap. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 min. Serve with sour cream if desired.
This is so easy and quick and saves so much time before dinner. Love these!
