Cheesy Chicken Chimichangas

These are the Mexican chimichangas. You should spice them generously and add salsa to the chicken mixture to get that Latin cuisine touch. You can use either maize tortillas or the wheat ones, as this makes the difference between gluten and gluten-free for this dish. For a juicy and refreshing touch, serve them with sour cream, diced tomatoes, and some guacamole.

Well, I love to eat! I guess I always did. Tasty foods, traditional foods, fast-foods, healthy foods and, again, not so healthy ones. You name it.
