A note about serious food allergies

What's a chimichanga? It takes the flavors and form of burritos and turns the nob all the way up to 11. Normally, they're deep-fried, bringing tons of flavor, but also many calories. For this preparation, we bake the chimichangas, giving you all the great tastes, but none of the guilt. There's pico de gallo and sour cream on the side for your dipping pleasure. What's a chimichanga? It's what's for dinner.
