Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such Flavor!! Considering the minimal ingredients, these were AWESOME! I whipped up a full recipe, and then proceeded to freeze the remaining chimichangas. I brought them to work for lunch, and they went from frozen to ready to eat in 2 minutes. Love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from chicken chimichangas These had good flavor and were very easy to make.. They were a bit salty, but that's maybe just me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and oh so delicious! I hadn't ever gone beyond eating a jar of Corn Black Bean salsa straight up with chips, so this recipe was a pleasant surprise and just as easy!
