PREPPING & COOKING INSTRUCTIONS
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Core and roughly dice pepper
Peel & roughly dice onion
Step 1: Cook beef filling
Brown the ground beef with the taco spice blend in a skillet over medium-high heat. Drain excess grease, and add the onion, bell pepper, and corn. Cook for about 5 more minutes, or until vegetables are tender. Remove from heat, and set aside.
Step 2: Assemble & bake the chimichanga
Spread a layer of refried beans onto each of the tortillas. Spoon the beef mixture down the center, and then top with shredded cheese leaving half in reserve for serving. Roll up the tortillas and place them seam-side down onto a baking sheet. Brush the tortillas with melted butter. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until golden brown.
Step 3: Prepare toppings and make pico
While chimichanga bakes, Shred lettuce by cutting into long, thin pieces. Roughly chop cilantro leaves. Dice tomato and place in a bowl. Add the cilantro & lime juice/garlic/onion mixture and mix well. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
Step 4: To serve
Carefully remove the chimichanga from the oven and put on plates. Top with taco sauce, remaining cheese, pico, and lettuce.
