    Default Chimichangas (Mexican Recipes)

    Makes: 4 servings, 2 pouches each

    1 lb. ground beef
    1/2 cup finely chopped onions
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1 tsp. dried oregano leaves
    1 tsp. crushed red pepper
    8 TACO BELLŪ HOME ORIGINALSŪ Flour Tortillas
    6 oz. VELVEETA Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product, cut into 8 slices
    2 cups oil
    1/4 cup BREAKSTONE'S or KNUDSEN Sour Cream
    1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro


    BROWN meat in large skillet on medium-high heat; drain. Add onions, garlic, oregano and pepper; mix well. Cook until onions are tender, stirring occasionally; drain.

    PLACE 1/4 cup meat mixture onto center of each tortilla; top with VELVEETA. Fold in all sides of tortillas to completely enclose filling; secure with wooden toothpicks. Place in single layer on baking sheet; cover. Refrigerate 20 min.

    HEAT oil in large saucepan on medium-high heat. Add tortilla pouches, 2 at a time; cook 5 min. or until golden brown. Drain. Remove toothpicks. Serve topped with sour cream and cilantro.

    Variation: Save 110 calories and 14 g total fat per serving by substituting 1 lb. potatoes, cooked and cubed, for the browned ground beef and by using VELVEETA Made With 2% Milk Reduced Fat Pasteurized Prepared Process Cheese Product and BREAKSTONE'S Reduced Fat or KNUDSEN Light Sour Cream. To prepare, cook and stir onions with seasonings in large skillet 3 min. or until crisp-tender. Add potatoes; cook 3 to 5 min. or until potatoes are heated through, stirring frequently. Spoon onto tortillas and continue as directed.

    Thawing Ground Beef Safely: To thaw ground beef safely, keep the meat wrapped and thaw it in the refrigerator -- not on the countertop. Store on the bottom shelf of the refrigerator to prevent any drippings from cross-contaminating other foods. Use thawed meat within 2 days.
