How to Make Mike's Green Chile Chimichangas

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 8 steps you must follow to make Mike's Green Chile Chimichangas in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Gather and fully drain all of your canned ingredients.
  • Step 2
  • I actually use Bueno Hatch Green Chilies but that may not be available to you in your area. Nor, the Green Chilie Powder. I'll include a link to where you can purchase it in my, "Roast Your Own Chiles," recipe below. It's well worth having in your spice rack!
  • Step 3
  • Add all spices and cheeses.
  • Step 4
  • Chop all of your vegetables. Excluding tortillas and oil, add everything listed, including 1/4 cup of your favorite salsa and mix well. Your salsa choice will be your only fluids in your bean mixture so don't forget it! ;0) Heat covered in microwave for 3.5 minutes. The short cook time is only meant to heat the beans and slightly soften your chopped vegetables. You'll definitely want that crisp [or chew] to your veggies in your chimichangas.
  • Step 5
  • Using what sized tortillas you've chosen, place bean mixture down the center of your flour tortilla. Add more cheese and additional green chilies to the top. Roll up as tightly as you can and seal tortillas with a toothpick. Fry toothpick side up first. I wouldn't use corn tortillas. They will crack and split on you every time. Do not overload your frying pan either. Go with two chimichangas at most.
  • Step 6
  • Deep fry your green chilie bean chimichangas in oil until browned and crispy. Drain on paper towels, remove all toothpicks and serve immediately. Consider serving a basic green chile dipping sauce, a homemade pico de gallo, salsa fresca, sour cream with chives and/or a red or green salsa to the side. Ice cold Mexican beers with lime also go great with these spicy little bad boys!
  • Step 7
  • If you'd like an EASY green enchilada sauce poured over the tops of these or even dipped into it, feel free to check out my one minute, seriously delicious enchilada recipe below. Three items is all it takes!
  • Step 8
  • Garnish as you desire. Chopped tomatoes, thin sliced lettuce and / or sliced cabbage with fresh chopped Cilantro are excellent bedding garnishment options. Guacamole, additional Hatch green chilies, green salsa and sour cream with chives are pictured. I also served these with the 1 minute enchilada sauce listed above in side bowls for dipping. Enjoy!
