These are the "Gimme Chimis" from a book called 'Eat Drink & Be Vegan'. They are not really chimichangas because they are not deep fried. I kind of wish I deep fried them but I'm not that crazy. I followed directions to pan fry them in olive oil and they came out very pretty looking. These were okay. I am pretty sure they would have been better had I not deviated from the written recipe. I used black beans instead of pinto, tofu instead of tempeh, omitted the cinnamon and cloves and used a tomato and basil flavored tortilla. I changed way too many things. If you're curious as to what's in them: black beans, zucchini, green pepper, red pepper, onions, garlic, tofu, chipotle hot sauce, oregano, cumin, chili powder, salt. I will probably try them again following the recipe exactly. The book looks great though. There are a ton of recipes that I want to try.
