  • 1 1/2 lb flank steak sliced into thin slices about 1/2 inch long
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 1 tablespoon Montreal Steak Seasoning or to taste
  • 8 slices American white cheese
  • 1/2 cup pepper jack cheese grated, or use any cheese of your choice
  • 6 raw or cooked tortillas
  • 1 tablespoon butter melted
  • salsa, sour cream & cilantro for serving


  • Preheat the oven to 400F.
  • Using a nonstick skillet over medium high heat and working in batches, add steak slices and cook for 5-7 minutes or until meat is cooked thru. Stirring few times.
  • Transfer beef to a colander to drain and return it back to the skillet. Add 2 tablespoons of avocado oil and season with 1 tablespoon montreal spice, or to taste. Add cheese and stir until cheese melts.
  • If you are using raw tortillas, cook them according to the package. Place cooked steak on tortilla and fold it into chimichanga form.
  • Brush with melted butter and bake for about 15- 20 minutes or until crispy texture. Serve with salsa, sour cream and cilantro. Enjoy!



  • Use left over grilled Carne asada meat to make these chimichangas. 
  • Warm tortillas before wrapping them, I like to warm them in the skillet on a high heat for few seconds. It makes wrapping so much easier when tortillas are warm.
  • These chimichangas can be air fried too, brush them with melted butter before adding them to the Air Fryer, then air fry them for 8-10 minutes on 400F.
  • Air fry frozen chimichangas by wrapping them in foil and air frying them on on 400F for about 18-20 minutes.
