    Baked Chimichangas
    These were really delicious! I used pinto beans and whole wheat tortillas. The only thing I didn't use was sour cream as I'm not crazy about it. This was a very easy recipe and I like how quickly they baked up. Loved the foil clean-up, too! Nice on a Friday after a stressful work week.

    Scraped together all the ingredients. I'll get to it in a couple/three days.

    This looks like another great DT recipe, Frankie. Great pic. I like the pico de gallo (or is that salsa) on top. Thanks for the heads up

    Thank you, MrP. These are very good and very easy. There is a bit of store bought salsa in the middle with some chopped tomato and red onion on either side. It all went really well with the chimichanga.

    It's all good! Well---the avacado wasn't ripe :(

    Homemade flour tortillas, salsa, taco seasoning and yogurt.
    Served it up to mother, whom isn't a Mexican fare food fan, and she liked it. Ate the whole thing. And is presently napping hard.
    I wound up with 7 chimichangas. It was a matter of making the ingredients come out even without a part of this and that and the other left over.
    Baking pan was a little crowded so they needed a little more time to bake.
    Yogurt on the inside with sour cream on the outside with chopped home grown tomatoes and salsa. Homemade Taco Seasoning

    Awww, thanks, Ana. You're always so nice. :)
    PSO, I am so impressed with how many homemade ingredients you made! Is your tortilla recipe posted or do you use one from here?
    Ml2c, do you have a tortilla press? Or did you roll them out? I didn't realize it was so easy to make homemade! That recipe has been bookmarked by a lot of people here! Do you know how one would store them if you made the whole recipe?

    I use a different recipe but it is posted here at GR. Think the name of the postee is chocolatecandy or something close to that.
    I put down a couple of squares of wax paper with the dough ball between them and press down on it with a large stock pot. It makes a nice round tortilla that then can be finished with a rolling pin.

    Oh, yeah. I know who you are talking about, pso. That's a great tip about the wax paper and the stock pot. Maybe I will be better at homemade tortillas than biscuits. :)
