"This dish combines two great favorites. It's a chimichanga with a delicious cheesesteak filling on the inside. Serve warm with ranch dressing for dipping."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir bell pepper and onion in hot butter until onion is translucent and pepper is tender, about 5 minutes. Add beef; cook and stir until the beef is hot, about 5 minutes more. Remove from heat.
  2. Pour enough canola oil into a saucepan to reach about 1 inch deep; heat to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. Arrange tortillas on a flat surface; place halves of cheese slices end to end lengthwise onto each tortilla. Layer an equal amount of steak mixture atop each cheese slice. Roll tortilla around filling as you would a burrito, with the sides tucked in to close the ends, forming chimichangas.
  4. Cook chimichangas in the hot oil until browned completely, about 5 minutes per side; drain on paper towels.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • Be sure the oil is properly heated so the tortillas will brown without soaking up excess oil. Or brush the tortillas with a small amount of butter and bake in the oven at 375 for about 5 minutes per side, until browned and crisp.
  • Alternative cooking method: If you prefer to not fry the chimichangas, brush the tortillas with a small amount of melted butter and bake at 375 until browned and crisp.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.
