Top them with avocado or guacamole, pico de gallo, sour cream and cheese and you have something that's delicious and easy to serve.

Directions

  1. Heat tortillas in microwave for 45 seconds so they are easy to fold. Reserve.
  2. Spoon equal amounts of the following onto each tortilla: chicken, shredded jack cheese, diced onion, rice and beans. Roll tortillas, tucking in sides to prevent filling from spilling over.
  3. Heat oil in a large skillet and fry the filled tortillas, turning them, until browned on all sides. Drain on paper towels.
  4. In a medium bowl combine the avocados, cilantro, lemon juice, green onions, chile peppers and tomatoes. Mash together. Place shredded lettuce on a plate and place the chimichangas on top. Add avocado mix, and sour cream.
  5. Enjoy!
