Chicken and Mushroom Chimichangas
This video shows you how to make chimichangas stuffed with a tasty chicken, cheese, and mushroom mixture. Chimichangas are essentially deep-fried burritos—only Chef John is giving them a quick shallow-fry before popping them in the oven. The chicken and mushroom mixture includes chopped poblano peppers, onions, cayenne, smoked paprika, and Mexican oregano. Add pepper Jack cheese to the mix before you roll everything up in warm flour tortillas. It’s super easy. You’ll quickly brown them in the skillet before finishing in the oven, baking them until they’re puffed up and golden brown. Watch the video, then get Chef John's recipe for Chicken and Mushroom Chimichangas. Top with guacamole, sour cream, and fresh salsa. What a gorgeous combination of tastes and textures.
