“Tortillas filled with a chicken, rice, beans and olive mixture - rolled, fried and topped with a piquant avocado mix, sour cream and cheese, all served on a bed of lettuce. Being raised 12 miles from the border of Mexico, I was brought up on Mexican food and learned how to make many of the dishes.” - by Rebecca Swift
Original recipe yields 6 servings
- In a medium saucepan combine the broth, rice, sauce, and 1 diced onion. Mix and bring to a boil; reduce heat to low and let simmer for about 20 minutes, or until rice is tender.
- Meanwhile, heat tortillas in a large skillet (so that they are soft enough to fold).
- When rice mixture is ready, spoon equal amounts of the following onto each tortilla: Chicken, shredded Jack cheese, diced onion, olives, rice mixture and beans. Roll tortillas, tucking in sides to prevent filling from spilling over.
- Heat oil in a large skillet and fry the filled tortillas, turning, until browned on all sides. Drain on paper towels.
- To Serve: In a medium bowl combine the avocados, cilantro, lemon juice, green onions, chile peppers and tomatoes. Mash together. Place shredded lettuce on a platter, topped with chimichangas, avocado mix, sour cream and shredded Cheddar cheese.

"My roomates and I love this recipe as it is extremely easy to prepare. I bake my chimis at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes instead of frying...not only is it healthier, but you don't have all that..." See more mess of frying. We can whip up a pretty healthful and delicious meal in about half an hour. I didn't bother with the quacamole topping because I'm a bit lazy...and not a huge guac and sour cream fan. But adding red enchilada sauce is a must!!"
"I loved this recipe. I did however out rolled chimis in a casserole dish, brushed with butter and baked them at 400 for 20-30 minutes until they were crispy and golden! Delicious and a lot cleaner. ..." See more I didn't make the topping and just served it with sour cream and homemade gauc! Yum Yum!"
"I enjoyed this recipe a lot, I brushed olive oil on the tortillas and baked them in the oven instead of frying. I used more olives and prepared the ingredients the day before to lessen prep time. I ad..." See moreded hot taco seasoning to the rice and cooked chicken (I love spicy food and this recipe seemed a bit bland), and the flavor was wonderful. Great recipe with lots of room for experimentation! I did end up having enough for a lot more than six servings, however."
