So I have made no secret that my family and I happen to love Mexican food any time of the year. I also am honest when I say I love recipes that are easy and cut some corners here and there. I mean nothing is worse than preparing a meal that takes too long.
One of the things I love to buy is Rotisserie Chicken in my local grocery store. See with this already prepared and cooked chicken, I can pretty much make just about any meal I want for my family using this chicken. This includes just a plain old chicken dinner with veggies on the side. Or even cut it up off the chicken to add into meals such tacos, casseroles and more.
Recently, I decided to get a bit creative with rotisserie chicken. Like I said we are all for Mexican food. So I went with a simple, but delicious variation on Chicken Chimichangas using rotisserie chicken.
With large tortilla soft shells, I added pre-cooked shredded rotisserie chicken, rice, black beans, salsa, shredded cheese and more.
Rolled them up and fried for a few minutes.
They came out perfectly crispy. You could also bake these in the oven or even grill outdoors during the warmer summer months now.
Honestly this chicken chimichangas recipe is so versatile. Once again pretty quick to make. And even my picky eater loves them. So, this one is a winner for all it would seem.
