I recently made these chimichangas for our dinner the other night, with some adjustments. The Hubby is allergic to tomato, so we skipped the salsa and I traded green onions for sweet onion. I thought they were just a slight bit too much cumin flavor for my preference but the Hubby really liked them. I added a little queso with some Velveeta and spare onion (I think it would be great with a Velveeta/Rotel queso as well) to top it off. The leftovers reheated well, however when microwaved they have no signs of the crispiness of the first serving.

Verdict? Will definitely make again!
