Chicken Chimichangas

The other day when I made the Shredded Chicken, I ended up with an extra Enchilada, cause there was no room in the pan for it.
I would have felt sorry for it, but I got one of those AHA moments and decided it was fair game to be turned into a Chimichanga.
I love Chimichangas.

So I fried it in a little oil, browning it on each side.

To make Chimichangas you need flour tortillas, a good filling, like my shredded chicken and a little oil to fry them in.

 I ended up with an extra enchilada which wasn't going to fit into the pan so I decided to make it into a Chimichanga.   A Chimichanga is basically a deep fried burrito.
I put it on the plate and decided it was rather plain looking.  So after I put an enchilada on the plate, I decided to add a little more cheese.
What can I say, cheese is good food.
And when I cut into the Chimi (not to be confused with my dog Chimi), I was so happy.
Look at the chicken, you can see the tomato bits, and the flavour, well.
I'm so doing my chicken this way again and again.
The Enchilada's were great and the Chimichanga, well I'm not missing my Chimi's anymore.
