One of my favorite things to order at any Mexican restaurant is a chimichanga.  You can never go wrong with a chimi!  A few years ago, Camille made these baked chimichangas and I was in seventh heaven.  I feel so much better making them at home, knowing exactly what goes into them and that they aren’t fried.  Even though they are baked, they still get nice and crispy on the outside.  You’ll never miss your deep fried chimichangas once you give these a whirl!  And that pork?  Amazing!
