  • Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Working with one tortilla at a time, spoon 2 Tbsp refried beans down the center.

  • Fold the top and bottom of tortilla toward center, then roll up the sides.
  • Secure with wooden toothpicks.
  • Place in 13 x 9 x 2 baking dish, seam side down.
  • Spray all sides of chimichangas with a light coating of cooking spray.

  • Serve with sour cream, guacamole, or spanish rice.
  • YUM!

    I love chimichangas but don't like the deep frying part. This is a perfect way to easily make them!

    These are spicy little things! I liked the baked part of them and how crispy they turned out. Added my picture, too. More stuff in IMI

    I have found from making these several times that some people prefer them "without" the cinnamon(my mom being one). Either way I think they are good.

    These sound like they could be really interesting (cinnamon, huh??)...and, worth a try :) Thank you for posting the recipe, ShelleyBean :)
    [BTW, thanks for adding your note by the cinnamon -- I had to take a second look to make sure :)...]
