Wrap the top and bottom of the tortilla over the filling.

Then brush the ends with a little more paste and fold them up and press to seal.

Fry two chimichangas at a time by placing them in the oil seam side down.

To reheat a chimichanga in an air fryer simply put the chimichanga in the air fryer and heat it at 350 F for 3 to 4 minutes.

To make your frozen chimichangas taste better you can add some chilled sour cream, a squeeze of lime, and some chopped cilantro.

Pickled onions can also be a pleasant addition to frozen chimichangas as well.

Burritos are filled with savory ingredients, most often a meat such as beef, chicken, or pork, and often include other ingredients, such as rice, cooked beans (either whole or refried), vegetables, such as lettuce and tomatoes, cheese, and condiments such as salsa, pico de gallo, guacamole, or crema.

The standard burrito includes seasoned ground beef, refried beans, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, sour cream, and your favorite chili sauce. Wrap that up in a tortilla and enjoy the classic taste.
