Title: Chimichangas Supreme
Categories: Mexican, Beef
Yield: 4 servings
1 lb Lean beef
1 ts Salt
1/4 ts Pepper
1/4 ts Garlic powder
1 1/2 ts Shortening
1/2 Onion, chopped
1/2 Bell pepper, chopped
1 1/2 ts Flour
1/2 c Canned whole green
4 fl Tortillas
Oil for deep frying
Red chile sauce (see index)
1 c Cheddar cheese, shredded
1 c Sour cream
8 Black olives
1/4 c Green onion, chopped
1 tb Whipping cream
2 c Shredded lettuce
4 pieces. Place in a
5 to 6-quart pan and add water to
cover. Bring to a boil; skim the foam from the surface. Add the salt,
1-1/2 to 2 hours.
Drain the beef, reserving 1/2 cup of the broth. When the meat is cool,
shred. Chop 2 of the tomatoes. Melt the shortening in a pan over medium
heat. Add the onion and bell pepper and saute until tender. Add the flour,
whisking until no lumps remain, and cook 2 minutes. Add the shredded beef,
reserved broth, chopped tomatoes, and whole chiles. Simmer 15 minutes.
Place about 1/2 cup of the meat mixture in a line down the center of each 1 inch to 2 inch; fold one side over the
other and roll up in a neat package. Secure with a toothpick. Deep fry in
very hot oil 400'F until crisp and well browned. Drain on paper towels.
Preheat the broiler. Place the chimichangas on an ovenproof plater or in a
baking pan. Spoon red chili sauce over liberally. Sprinkle with grated
cheese and green onion. Place under the broiler until the cheese melts.
Combine the sour cream and the whipping cream. Slice the remaining 2
tomatoes. Top the chimichangas with the sour cream mixture and Guacamole.
Garnish with shredded lettuce, sliced tomato and olives. --
