Three words…deep fried burrito
Three words! Deep fried burrito…. Yummmm… I was trying to conjure up a Cinqo De Mayo inspired dish and remembered a food programme I saw, about Chimichangas. Firstly I loved the name and secondly well whats not to love. I remember being inquisitive about what the name actually meant. Apparently it translates as “whatchamacallit” or “thingamajig” – Brilliant!
Quick recipe with no rules for fillings so pop in whatever you like.
I decided on:
- Mixed beans
- Mashed tofu
- Green chillies
- Red pepper
- Bucket loads of sriracha chilli sauce and oodles of Art of Zen Foods Violife Mozzarella grated.
- Place filling in the middle of your tortilla and wrap.
- I popped the burrito into a heated pan folded side down to seal it tightly then into the deep fat fryer for 5/10 min.
- Serve them up with: leaves, salsa and yoghurt/mayo and coriander blitzed with a pinch of garlic powder, salt and pepper
Time to make friends with my second chimichanga. Ooohh I could say that word all day. Definitely give these bad boys a try. Simply delicious.
