Easy 30-Minute Chicken Chimichanga Recipe – it is a baked burrito, stuffed with chicken, cheese and mild chilies.

They are crispy from the outside,  cheesy & juicy on the inside.

Chimichangas are very popular in Mexico and in my kitchen.

I love preparing this Mexican food recipe way ahead before dinner.  I cook chicken, shred cheese, chop salad, then fold each chimichangas and place them in the refrigerator.  15 minutes before dinner I brush them with butter and bake them until golden color.

They are super crispy, moist, and hubby-approved.

Try them for yourself, and let me know what you think!
