Chicken Chimi Chimies ( Chimichangas )
45 mins (prep 15, cooking 30)
12 ingredients
10 servings
This is an easy chimichanga, great for a busy day. I like to cook the chicken ahead, so that dinner can be ready in under 30 minutes. One chimi is good for smaller eaters, two for those hearty appetites. This is a mild dish, unless you add lots of cumin, which makes it great for kids. If you like spicy add a few dashes of hot sauce or a diced jalapeño. After reading a couple of reviews I realized that I too was increasing the sour cream without paying exact attention to the recipe this adapted from. I don't always start with the same amount of chicken so, you want the mix to be slightly wet and gooshy without being drippy, it should cling together. I sometimes add 1/2 cup of shredded cheese to the mix, but you can leave it out to avoid the extra fat. Serve with your favorite side dishes, I like Spanish rice and fruit with this.
