This is an authentic 40 year-old recipe, and the filling will not taste the same as fast food style chimichangas. The only thing Americanized here is that the chimichangas are baked instead of fried. Caution: If you use leanest ground beef, the filling will seem dry. Serve lots of lettuce, tomatoes and other garnishes listed below with each chimichanga - they are important to this dish's all around flavors and textures.
