Shredded Beef Chimichangas
(Chimichangas de Carne de Res)


  • 4 flour tortillas, 12-inch diameter
  • 1 recipe Shredded Beef
  • 4 avocados, skinned and seeded
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 pickled jalapeno chiles, seeded and minced
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar from jalapeno can
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, minced


  1. Soften tortillas and wrap them in a towel to keep them warm.
  2. Place about 2 cup to 2 1/4 cups of Shredded Beef on each tortilla.
  3. Chop 2 of the avocados and apportion them equally on top of the Shredded Beef.
  4. Fold the tortillas and fry one at a time until crispy.
  5. Drain on a paper towel, then remove to a serving plate.
  6. Meanwhile, mash the remaining 2 avocados; then stir in the remaining ingredients to make a thick, smooth sauce. A food processor makes quick work of this task.
