Homemade chimichangas are one of my favorite recipes to make at home. They are delicious little flaky pockets filled with Mexican inspired ingredients. I can remember the first time that I tried them. It was a cute Mexican restaurant located on West 4th Street in Manhattan. It was love at first bite! I was totally surprised to find out, later on, that they were not originally an authentic Mexican dish. I also, realized that there is no wrong way to make them. Chimichangas are basically burritos that are deep fried. However, I do my best to stay healthy, so needless to say, that I am not keen on deep frying anything these days! I figured out a healthier version that maintains its flavor and is very satisfying.
