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. Tip: Best way to remove ribs and seeds from a red bell pepper? Cut off top and bottom of pepper, then either carefully cut or tear our the seed portion
