Author Vianney Rodriguez


  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • ½ cup diced bell pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1 15oz diced tomatoes
  • 3 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 8 Old El Paso tortillas for burritos
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 large avocado
  • ½ cup sour cream

  1. In a nonstick skillet heat oil over medium high heat. Sauté onion, bell pepper, cumin, salt and pepper until light and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook additional 1 minute. Add diced tomatoes, reduce heat and simmer until thick. Stir in shredded chicken, remove skillet from heat and place in bowl.
  2. Divide mixture evenly among tortillas. Gently fold in edges and roll up. Wipe non stick skillet clean, return to medium high heat and add 1 tablespoon olive oil to pan. Lightly fry chimichangas in batches until crispy and lightly browned on each side, adding additional olive oil to pan if necessary.
