Chicken Chimichangas

These chimichangas are the perfect freezer meal – they come together quickly and reheat very well. Flour tortillas are filled with a shredded chicken mixture and baked, then topped with your favorite toppings. Mexican is a favorite in my house, and this is a crowd pleaser!

    These look like something my kids would love. If I want to freeze them individually, would you recommend baking them first so they can just reheat them in the microwave?

    This is exactly the kind of recipe I need for my husband… I wonder if I could do the same thing but with “pizza” ingredients?

    Thanks!
