  • In a skillet, cook the ground beef over medium heat until no longer pink. Add the diced onion, garlic, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper. Cook until the onions are soft and the beef is fully cooked.
  • Mix in the refried beans and cook for another 2-3 minutes until heated through.
  • Place a spoonful of the beef and bean mixture onto a flour tortilla. Top with shredded cheese.
  • Fold in the sides of the tortilla and roll it up tightly to form a chimichanga.
  • In a separate skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Carefully place the chimichangas seam side down and fry until golden brown on all sides.
  • Remove the chimichangas from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.
  • Serve the chimichangas with your favorite toppings like sour cream, guacamole, salsa, chopped lettuce, and tomatoes.
  • Enjoy!
