Shredded Beef Chimichangas

If you are like me and try to come up with ways to change up the usual Sunday roast dinner or use any leftover shredded meat, this recipe is for you! It is super easy, and fun to dress up! I had extra Homemade Flour Tortillas in the freezer, and whipped up some Guacamole to top it off! These are sure to give you a Mexican fix! :)


Shredded Beef (cooked and seasoned)
Homemade Flour Tortillas (or whatever you have on hand)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Red onion (diced)
Sour Cream (optional)
Olives (optional)
Homemade Red Enchilada Sauce, or your favorite store bought kind (try Old El Paso's, they are my favorite when I do not have time for homemade)
Cheddar Cheese, shredded


Heat oil in frying pan over medium-high heat. Place a tortilla on the counter and put a little bit of meat in the middle. Add some cheese and fold up. [I like to fold mine by folding in the sides and taking the bottom (closest to me) and rolling it to the top.] Gently place in the hot oil and wait until the bottom is browned, but not burnt. Carefully flip it over and fry till browned on the bottom. Take the chimichanga out of the oil and place on some napkins or paper towel to drain any excess oil. To assemble the toppings, pour some enchilada sauce over the tortilla, sprinkle some cheese, add some red onions and olives, and give a dollop of guacamole, and sour cream.
