Baked Chimichangas with Spanish Rice


One of hubby’s favorite meals.

I think the cinnamon and cloves really give these a great flavor so I hope if trying you won’t skip it.

Baked Chimichangas

1 pound lean ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cup stewed tomato with green chilies, home canned or can use Rotel
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
pinch dried oregano
pinch cumin
7 or 8 homemade tortillas according to how full you fill them

Brown your ground beef and drain any excess grease. Add all ingredients but tortillas and simmer about 10 minutes.

Place a couple heaping spoonfuls of this filling in the middle of each tortillas and roll burrito style. Place on a well sprayed cookie sheet about a half inch apart and then spray the tops of each. Bake in a 375 degree oven about 25 to 30 minutes.


Spanish Rice

1 cup stewed tomatoes with green chilies,  home canned or can use Rotel
1 cup chicken stock
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon fresh chopped cilantro
2 teaspoons chili powder
3/4 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon cumin
3/4 cup white rice

Place all ingredients but rice in a covered pot and bring to a boil.  Add rice and cover tightly.  Lower heat to simmer and don’t uncover for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from heat and fluff with a fork.
