How do you make Homemade Beef and Bean Chimichangas?


  1. In a skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef, breaking it apart with a spatula as it cooks.

  2. Once the beef is browned, add the chopped onion and minced garlic. Cook until the onion is translucent and fragrant, about 2-3 minutes.

  3. Transfer the cooked beef mixture to a plate lined with paper towels using a slotted spoon to drain excess fat.

  4. In a mixing bowl, combine the drained beef mixture with the refried beans, ground cumin, chili powder, paprika, salt, and pepper. Mix well until everything is evenly combined. Set aside.

  5. Place a large spoonful of the beef and bean mixture onto the center of a flour tortilla. Fold the sides over the filling, then roll it up tightly to form a chimichanga. Repeat with the remaining tortillas and filling.

  6. In a large skillet or deep fryer, heat about 1 inch of vegetable oil over medium-high heat until it reaches 350°F (175°C).

  7. Carefully place the chimichangas seam side down into the hot oil, working in batches if necessary to avoid overcrowding the skillet. Fry for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and crispy.

  8. Remove the chimichangas from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.

  9. Serve the chimichangas hot with your favorite toppings such as shredded cheese, salsa, sour cream, guacamole, lettuce, and diced tomatoes.
