Chimichangas (Deep Fried Burritos)

                                1 LB Ground meat, browned and drained

1 med Onion, chopped

1/2 c Red chile sauce or enchilada sauce

12 Flour tortillas

Oil for frying

2 c Cheddar cheese

2 c Shredded lettuce

2 c Chopped green onions

Instructions

In a large skillet, brown meat and drain. Add onion and chile or enchilada sauce. Spoon about 3 tbs. of meat filling in center of each tortilla. Fold tortilla, tucking in ends, and fasten with wooden toothpicks. Only assemble 2 or 3 at a time, as tortilla will absorb liquid from sauce. In a large frying pan, with 1 inch of oil over medium heat, fry folded tortilla, turning until golden about 1 to 2 minutes. Drain on paper towels and keep warm. Garnish with cheese, lettuce, and onion.

Yield: 12 Chimichangas or fried burritos
