INSTRUCTIONS

Prep

Preheat the oven to 350º;

Core & roughly dice pepper;

Peel & roughly dice onion.

1Cook Beef Filling

Brown the ground beef with the taco spice blend in a skillet over medium-high heat. Drain excess grease & add the onion, bell pepper, & corn. Cook for about 5 more minutes, or until vegetables are tender. Remove from heat & set aside.

2Assemble & Bake Chimichanga

Spread a layer of refried beans onto each of the tortillas. Spoon the beef mixture down the centre, & then top with shredded cheese leaving half in reserve for serving. Roll up the tortillas & place them seam-side down onto a baking sheet. Brush the tortillas with melted butter. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until golden brown. 

3Prepare Toppings & Make Pico

While chimichanga bakes, shred lettuce by cutting into long, thin pieces. Roughly chop cilantro leaves. Dice tomato & place in a bowl. Add the cilantro & lime juice/garlic/onion mixture & mix well. Season with salt & pepper & set aside. 

4To Serve

Carefully remove the chimichanga from the oven & put on plates. Top with taco sauce, remaining cheese, pico, & lettuce.
