The traditional ingredients in a chimichanga are cheese, beef, beans and rice.

You can make a chimichanga with any beans other black beans and pinto beans are the traditional beans that are used in a chimichanga.

A chimichanga is a type of deep fried burrito which consists of filling a tortilla with meat, beans, cheese, and other ingredients and then rolled up and fried.

A chimichanga is not the same as an enchilada but they are similar.

The difference between Enchilada and Chimichanga is that Chimichanga is a deep-fried burrito, whereas an enchilada is a maize tortilla wrapped with a filling and topped with a spicy sauce.

Enchiladas are made with corn tortillas which are wrapped over meat and presented with a generous amount of sauce.

The name chimichanga came from when Tía Monica censored her own frustration and instead of barking out a well-known expletive in Spanish, she “twisted it around so the word came out 'chimichanga.

Traditional chalupas are small, thick, boat-shaped fried dough topped only with Salsa, cheese, and shredded lettuce.

It is made out of flour dough and a thicker kind of shell that is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.

Though you can use a taco holder for both, traditional tacos tend to be soft-shelled with corn tortillas, and Americanized versions may have crunchy folded shells or wheat tortillas in place of corn.

Chalupas, on the other hand, are rigid and boat-shaped, not folded.

The Chalupa is a Mexican dish which originated from Mexico and it's also as specialty Mexican dish of south-central Mexico, including the states of Hidalgo, Puebla, Guerrero, and Oaxaca.

The Chalupas main ingredients are Salsa, Lettuce, Cheese and Masa.

Chalupa is served at many Mexican places but is also served in America as well.

If you've never eaten a Chalupa I highly recommend you give it a try as it's very delicious and very filling.

I order a Chalupa every time I'm in the mood for Mexican food.

I wish I could make it at home as good as they do when I order it but I'm not that good of a cook.
