Made this for a freezer meal. Modified just a bit with my homemade salsa and added rice. Froze it in 6 serving portions. Thawed, wrapped, and fried when we were ready to eat. Excellent and saved us lots of time after work for a great meal! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!

I Have Been Craving a Chimichanga… Just last night after work ,I went to a Taco Shop and got a Nacho but, Really wanted a Chimichanga just didn’t want to gamble, Wasn’t sure if I’d like their’s?? However- This Recipe Looks AWESOME!!!!!LOVE IT!!! Thanks for Shearing

Chorizo is available at just about any grocery, it is one of the things that give them the best flavor. I suppose you might just be able to omit it if you don’t have it but it will change the flavor.

OH my.. Never had that.. looks yummy.. I can not seem to find the Mexican sausage around here.. Any suggestions.. My man loves the Mexican sausage. Looked at wegmans did not see it there or at walmart.
