These Guiltless Beef Chimichangas are baked, not fried and topped with tons of fresh veggies. I also used my favorite gluten free flour tortillas and couldn’t be more happy with the results.
I used to make these baked chimichangas all the time until I had to eliminate wheat and dairy. (Of course, if you can have regular tortillas, go for it.) However, for years, there just wasn’t a good gluten free flour tortilla on the market. Then about 6 months ago I stumbled upon Mission gluten free flour tortillas in the market and fell in love! Yes, love!
I totally stole this idea from my sister, so I can’t take all the credit. Although she didn’t give me her recipe, I think these turned out great. These chimichangas are guiltless because they skip the oil bath and opt for a quick roll in the oven. My guess is that you won’t even miss the frying and all the clean up that goes with it. I make these on the days I have a few extra minutes to spend in the kitchen because I just love chopping up all those toppings and making a fresh pico de gallo to go on top.
