Chimichangas


    ingredients

    8 large flour tortillas
    1 lb. meat (I like to use leftover steak or chicken, but you can use hamburger as well).
    2 Tbsp. olive oil (omit if you are using hamburger)
    1 medium onion, chopped
    1 can chili (or beans of choice)
    1 bell pepper, chopped
    Cooking oil for frying (I just use vegetable oil)

    Instructions


    In an electric frying pan, heat oil to 350 degrees - you'll want it around 1" deep.
    Meanwhile, saute onion and pepper in oil.
    Add remaining ingredients and stir.
    Place alarge spoonful of mixture into the middle of a tortilla.
    Fold over two sides, and roll the tortilla up (you can secure with toothpicks if necessary).
    Fry in oil until golden and crispy (about 45 seconds per side).
    Serve with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, salsa, sour cream, etc.
