Getting Your Kids Involved:

Kids can help fill and roll the chimichangas and put the guacamole, sour cream, and the lettuce in serving bowls.

Encouraging Picky Eaters:

Not sure your kids will like all of the fillings together? Make a basic chicken and cheese quesadilla, cut into triangles for dipping, and serve the toppings on the side for them to choose what they want to try!!

What You Need

Baking Sheet
Chef's Knife
Cutting Board
Large Pot
Large Salad Bowl
Large Sauce Pan
Large Saute Pan
Large Skillet
Large bowl
Medium Bowl
Medium Pot
Olive Oil
Paper Towels
Pepper
Salt
Small Pot
Spatula
Strainer
Vegetable or Canola Oil

Instructions

1Step One

Preheat the oven to 450 F.  Pour the chicken and its liquid into a large sauté pan. Bring just to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 3 minutes.

On a cutting board, dice the romaine lettuce into 1/2" pieces and set aside.

 

2Step Two

Lay a tortilla on a flat surface and spread 2- 4 Tbsps of the black beans in the center. Place a layer of chicken on top of the beans, followed by a layer of lettuce, and 2 Tbsps of Mexican cheese blend.  

Fold the bottom third of the tortilla over the filling, then fold the sides inwards.  Continue rolling the tortilla to fully enclose the filling. Repeat the process with the remaining tortillas.**

3Step Three

Lay chimichangas seam-side down into a large oven-safe baking dish, making sure to leave a bit of space in between each chimichanga so that they will crisp properly. Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes, or until golden and crispy. Remove dish from oven  and top each chimichanga with a bit of mango manchamantel sauce (to taste) and the Oaxaca cheese. Return chimichangas to oven and bake for an additional 3-6 minutes, or until cheese is  melted and bubbly.

4Step Four

Put the guacamole, sour cream, pico de gallo and the extra lettuce in separate serving bowls. Serve the chimichangas with toppings added to taste. Enjoy!

Tips

  • * Skip this step if you prefer to use olive oil instead of butter to brush your tortillas. ** To make tortillas easier to roll, place 2 at a time between two damp paper towels and microwave for 10 seconds.
