If you have been on our website before, you know how much we love Mexican food.
Whenever we go to a Mexican restaurant, my go-to dish is a chimichanga. I love the crunchy outside with all the meat and cheese on the inside. However, I know that deep-fried tortilla is probably not the healthiest thing . . .
That’s where these Baked Sweet Pork Chimichangas come into play! All the flavor and crunchy outer shell without the deep fry . . . you’re going to love this recipe.
Chimichanga VS. Burrito
We get asked all the time what the difference between a chimichanga and a burrito is, and why these “baked” chimichangas are such a great option.
A burrito is typically filling wrapped in a flour tortilla. A chimichanga is a popular Tex-Mex dish consisting of toppings wrapped in a flour tortilla, just like a burrito, and then deep fried.
These baked chimichangas are such a great option if you’re cutting back on calories or fats because you’re not frying them in oil, but rather baking them in the oven.
