What samosa is to Indians, chimichanga is to Mexican . A popular dish is southwestern American cuisine, Chimichanga is basically deep-fried burritos with a filling of refried beans, topped with sour cream, tomatoes and guacamole.
You might need to make a trip to a specialty store to pick up some of these ingredients, but it is definitely worth the effort, because once you have all of it, the chimichangas can be prepared easily and enjoyed comfortably at home.
- Heat the refried beans and spoon about 2 tbsp onto the centre of each tortilla.
- Fold in the sides to make a parcel, making sure that all the filling is enclosed.
- Repeat for the remaining tortillas and beans to make more chimichangas.
- Heat oil in a large frying pan and when hot, put the chimichangas, folded side down first. Cook on both sides until crisp. Drain on absorbent paper.
- Spoon 1 tsp guacamole over the top of each chimichanga, 1 tsp sour cream over it. Sprinkle 2 tsp tomatoes on top.
- Repeat step 1 to top more chimichangas with guacamole, sour cream and tomatoes.
- Serve immediately.
