      Excellent! We had these for dinner tonight. I halved the recipe easily, using the whole can of chiles. I used ground beef. Since there were no instructions for the beef, I lightly browned it and then added the diced bacon and onions and finished until all were cooked and followed as directed. Next time I would like to use shredded chicken vs. the ground chicken and add some mexican corn. Didn't get to take pic. Very good. Made for Ausie Swap #33.

      Yum! I used happynana's suggestion of shredded chicken, and it was great! I omitted the salt (personal preference). I had a little extra filling and found that it was great over the salad as a kind of taco salad-type dish. I also garnished with some homemade guacamole. Thanks for sharing!

      Simply yummy! I had 2 of the beef and couldn't wait to have them again! I just used regular oregano because I couldn't find the Mexican. Worked great! We will have these often.

      We loved these! I have to admit, I'm not a big Tex-Mex foodie and made this primarily for my DH, but I was the one going back for seconds! And he loved them as well! I used ground beef and for the chili powder I used Penzey's Chipotle Powder. Made for Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #32.

      I'm not sure if I've ever used ground meat for chimichangas in the past but these were very good. The meat was ground turkey and only about 3 slices of bacon were used for flavoring and for cooking the onions. The lard was omitted. While the recipe calls for ground chicken there is a reference in the instructions for shredded meat which would also be very good. Made for *ZWT 5*
