Top Rated Chimichanga Recipes

Deep-Fried Bacon-Wrapped Fried Ice Cream
Go to Google and search bacon. About 178,000,000 results, right? Now search sex. About 3,050,000,000 results (at least by last night's count). So there are some 17 times more results for sex than bacon. That's still a pretty good ratio considering the motivating factor of the human race. So it's no surprise bacon recipes do well, and no surprise bacon-wrapped recipes do well. That's one reason The Daily Meal's Cook editors assigned a week of Recipe SWAT Team to bacon-wrapped recipes (if only there could be a bacon-wrapped sex recipe, but this is a PG-rated site... shh!). When thinking about all the ridiculous, yet tasty and fun bacon-wrapped recipes we could create, one challenge came to mind amongst The Daily Meal's staff: Deep-Fried Bacon-Wrapped Fried Ice Cream. Just saying. There are all kinds of ridiculous reasons to do try this recipe, but mostly you should try it: 1) because if you don't have one it's a great excuse to go buy a reasonably priced countertop deep-fryer, 2) you're wrapping something with bacon that shouldn't be wrapped with bacon and then fried, and 3) see one and two, but with the dessert factor thrown into the mix. Fair warning... for this recipe you need: (per that first reason) a deep-fryer, patience, and a healthy degree of self-restraint — cereal-crusted ice cream tastes really good even before it's deep-fried. Two more things to think about before you get started. Many recipes cite a Mexican fried ice cream said to have originated at Chi Chi's. That recipe and many others call for vanilla ice cream and Kellogg's Corn Flakes. Truth is, there are worlds of other possibilities. Think of every ice cream flavor and cereal combination you can. We're talking strawberry ice cream and Fruit Loops and chocolate ice cream and Kellogg's Corn Pops. Everything goes. Many recipes also call for coconut flakes and or nuts. This one doesn't. It's a four-ingredient deep-fried bacon-wrapped fried ice cream. That's it... just four. Click here to see Dress Your Food in Bacon and Bacon Fat.

These chimichangas are baked, not fried, making them much healthier! I won a prize at the holiday cook-off for these!

Another regional favorite with a Hispanic heritage, the chimichanga is the pride of Southern Arizona, in the heart of the southwestern cattle country that has produced some of our most distinctive beef dishes. Deep-fried and decked out with toppings, it's a souped-up burrito chockfull of chuck, vegetables and mild chile. For a colorful fiesta spread, serve chimichangas with Mexican Rice, Watermelon Ice and Orange Sangaree.

This recipe is from a southwestern cookbook sent me by Nurslinda. It is easy and delicious. Serve with a green salad and refried beans and/or Spanish rice. Oranges make a good dessert.

Prep: 12 min., Cook: 20 min., Fry: 4 min. per batch. These meat- and bean-filled wraps are simply deep-fried burritos.
